There have been some twists and turns as to whether this would be the last season of The Crown or not. The series was originally intended to run for six seasons, with a cast change every other season. Then, creator, Peter Morgan decided to cut the last part down to just one season, making season five the finale.
In 2020, that plan changed again. Realizing there was enough content to complete 10 episodes, Morgan and Netflix agreed to a sixth season. So The Crown Season 5 won’t be the end after all, although that doesn’t change when the season hits Netflix.
There will be a bit of a wait for the fifth season of The Crown. Filming won’t start until the summer of 2021, which means new episodes probably won’t arrive until late 2022.
This follows the pattern of the break between the second and third seasons of the Netflix historical drama series. The cast change causes a slightly longer pause between filming. However, we shouldn’t expect a long break for Season 6, unless the pandemic causes a problem again.
This is a season where the characters change again, the years between each character evolve, so say goodbye to Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, and Helena Bonham Carter. This welcomes you to:
- Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth
- Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip
- Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret
- Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales
Dominic West is currently rumored to be in talks to play Prince Charles. The rumors worked well when it came to Staunton playing the queen, so will it be the same for West playing Charles?
We will most likely get The Crown season 5 from sometime in November or December 2022 and will make sure to update as soon as there is an official release date.
The Crown season 5 will likely follow Charles and Diana’s divorce and Diana’s subsequent untimely death. There will be some other marital problems for Queen Elizabeth’s children, and Prime Minister Tony Blair is likely to be included in the post.
