The Crown: Everything We Know About Seasons 5 And 6


The Crown, if we are honest, is not the funniest series in the world, but it is interesting to see its version of the history of the British royal family and the characters that we have grown up observing from afar, and with the end near, the creators of the show must certainly have something big up their sleeve.

According to the critics, season 4 of The Crown is the best of all, perhaps because it is the closest to current events, or perhaps because Emma Corrin surprised us all with her version of Princess Diana, and because we are finally approaching the question that we all have in our minds, will Carlos become king at some point in his life or does his mother plan to live forever?

In season 4 of The Crown on Netflix, we learned the story of the conflicts with the IRA, the murder of Lord Mountbatten, Margaret Thatcher’s relationship with the queen, the incident in which a man snuck into Buckingham and made his way to the room of the sleeping queen, and the “secret! of Elizabeth II who was sent to an institution to avoid a scandal to the crown, but there is still a long way to go in the history of the royal family before the series comes to an end.

For now, Netflix has already confirmed that The Crown will have two more seasons, it is said that season 5 will begin filming in 2021 and that Netflix has already chosen the cast to take a new leap in time ( Olivia Colman will give the crown to a new actress, as Claire Foy did after the second season) and reach the present time of the monarchy.

How Many Seasons Is The Crown Missing?

Originally, The Crown would have three seasons, but it became one of Netflix’s greatest hits and its creators were given the opportunity to continue exploring the history of the monarchy. Now, Netflix confirmed that the series will end with the sixth season.

Peter Morgan, one of the creators of The Crown said that “When we began to discuss the stories of the fifth season, it soon became clear that to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.” .

We do not know how far the history of the series will go, but, with two more seasons, they leave open the possibility of getting even closer to what we know today.

When Will The Crown End?

The original plan was for the series to span a period of 60 years, so it is believed that it could end with the Diamond Jubilee that the queen celebrated in 2012. If that is the case, we would get to see part of the relationship between William and Kate, and their wedding in 2011, although it is practically confirmed that Harry and Meghan will not appear in the series.

When Does The Next Season Premiere?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fifth season will begin filming at some point in 2021 and could come to Netflix at some point in 2022, this is in line with the times we have had to wait in previous seasons.

Who Are The New Players?

Imelda Staunton will take on the role of Queen Elizabeth II, who will have two seasons to play the character. “I am truly honored to join such an exceptional creative team and to bring The Crown to its conclusion,” she said in a statement following her casting announcement.

Phantom Thread’s Lesley Manville will replace Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret. Manville said in a statement that “I couldn’t be happier to play Princess Margaret. The baton is being passed by two formidable actresses, and I really don’t want to disappoint them. Also, playing sisters with my dear friend Imelda Staunton will be nothing less than a complete joy “.
