The Crown is one of the most talked-about shows on Netflix, and Queen’s death made it top charting series. Since then, fans can’t wait to see how things unfold in Season 5. Netflix recently unveils The Crowns season 5 details.
The Crown Season 5 Plot
The series will pick up after the events of season 4, which spanned from 1979 to 1990. The new seasons will also enclose the fallout and subsequent divorce between Diana and Charles, which rocked the monarchy at the time. Nothing super recent will be covered, but since each season tends to span around a decade, it makes sense that the show might end with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Fans might see William and Kate’s 2011 wedding in The Crown season five. Moreover, Prince Andrew and Fergie split, and Princess Anne and her husband also. Most significantly, though, is the tragic fact that Diana died in a car crash in 1997.
The Crown Season 5 Cast
Joining the cast of the upcoming season are Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana. Newcomer Rufus Kampa will play Prince William at age 15, and then Ed McVey will play him as a later teen and early adult. Meanwhile, Meg Bellamy landed the role of Kate. Moreover, Imelda Staunton will star as Queen Elizabeth.
The Crown Season 5 Release Date
Netflix has confirmed that The Crown season 5 will release on November 9.
The Crown Season 5 Trailer
Netflix recently released The Crown season 5 first teaser as part of their annual fan event, Tudum. The brief clip focuses on Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Princess Diana’s (Elizabeth Debicki) separation in 1992, with voiceovers discussing the global response to the news as the royals prepare for a television interview.
The Crown Season 6
While showrunner Morgan said season 5 would be The Crown’s final season, he changed his mind and decided to extend the show. Morgan told Deadline, “As we started to discuss the storylines for series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons. To be clear, series 6 will not bring us any closer to present—it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
