A day before the Emmy-anointed Netflix series debuts on Netflix, “The Crown” will be celebrated with a high-profile gala presentation at the 2019 edition of AFI FEST on November 16. Dubbed “An Evening With Peter Morgan,” the fete will feature a conversation with the Oscar- and Emmy-nominated writer and producer in tribute to his tony career as creator of the landmark historical drama series. The event will screen the Season 3 premiere episode, which drops on Netflix November 17.

Joining Morgan onstage at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles will be series stars Olivia Colman (taking the throne from Claire Foy this season), as well as Tobias Menzies (Prince Philip), Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret), Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles), and Erin Doherty (Princess Anne).

“Peter Morgan has an unmatched talent in creating some of the most engaging historical dramas,” said Michael Lumpkin, AFI festivals director. “With the bold and brilliant move of introducing a new cast for Season 3 of ‘The Crown,’ Morgan takes us deeper into the politics, pageantry and personalities of the British royal family.”
