The Crown is one of the most talked-about shows on Netflix, and everyone can’t wait to see the next chapter unfold. Season 4 of the drama will hit the streaming service on Nov. 15, 2020, but fans are already eager to know what will happen in The Crown season 5.
Fans are very eager to see the fourth chapter in the enthralling royal saga come to life and are excited to see the final performances from Olivia Coleman, Helen Bonham Carter, Tobias Menzies, and the rest of the breathtaking cast. The series has always brought in some serious star power to fill the shoes of the monarchy magnificently, and The Crown season 5 is sure not to disappoint.
Despite the original plan being for a six-chapter affair, for a while many subscribers were under the impression that The Crown season 5 was going to be the last.
Peter Morgan even once indicated that The Crown season 5 was to be the final run, but he told Deadline he changed his mind.
“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-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
Netflix announced there would be the sixth season, meaning fans should prepare themselves for the beginning of the end when The Crown season 5 finally makes its way to Netflix.
The Crown season 5 release date
Fans everywhere are eager to binge every new episode of The Crown season 4 when it arrives in November, with many wondering how long they will need to wait until the next outing arrives.
According to Deadline, the production team will be picking things back up for The Crown season 5 in June 2021. Episodes of that season are expected to arrive on the streaming service for fans to enjoy some time in 2022. The fifth season was initially slated to come out in the Spring of 2021, but thanks to the COVID-19 situation, things have obviously changed.
But it isn’t that dramatic of a difference as this two-year gap is nothing new for this series, especially when it brings in a new set of actors. When Claire Foy finished her tenure as the Queen, and Olivia Coleman took over, the same amount of time took place in-between seasons.
The Coronavirus Pandemic still remains to be a significant factor when it comes to productions, but the start date is far enough away, leaving plenty of time to work out all necessary parameters to make sure The Crown season 5 can remain on schedule. It’s safe to assume that Netflix subscribers can confidentially mark their calendars for 2022 at the earliest.
The Crown season 5 cast
One thing the Netflix original is known for is its brilliant choices when it comes to casting, and we already know who is on the roster for The Crown season 5. The series started off with Claire Foy portraying Queen Elizabeth with Olivia Coleman taking over for seasons three and four.
For The Crown season 5, Imelda Staunton, who fans will recognize from the Harry Potter films and most recently on the Apple TV+ series Trying, will be taking The Crown to the finish line, which is something she is very honored to be a part of as she is a fan of the Netflix original series.
Jessica Kirby and Helen Bonham Carter have been exceptional as Princess Margaret, and bringing it home for the final two seasons will be none other than Leslie Manville. Manville’s most notable credits include Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, The Queen, Love Life, and Phantom Thread.
Game of Thrones actor and The Two Popes star, academy award nominee Jonathan Pryce will take over as Duke of Edinburgh after a great run by fellow Thrones alumni Tobias Menzies.
Princess Diana will be played by Tenet’s Elizabeth Debicki for both seasons five and six, making the final two runs a star-studded affair no one should miss.
The Crown season 5 synopsis
Netflix has released nothing official regarding a synopsis for The Crown season 5, but savvy fans have a good idea of where things could go narrative-wise. Season four of The Crown will focus on the 1970 and 1980s, so its safe to assume that the next endeavor will bring audiences into the 1990s, which was a rough decade for the royal family.
It will be interesting to see how they handle that less than stellar time period involving marriage breakdowns from Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, and Princess Anne as well as the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997.
There are plenty of reasons to get excited about The Crown season 5, given all the creators have to work with when it comes to talented performers and plenty of riveting source material.
The Crown season 5 will be setting up the Netflix original farewell tour, and fans will not want to miss a second of what’s in store before the series’ time on the throne is over.
The Crown season 5 trailer
There is no trailer for The Crown season 5 and considering season 4 hasn’t even dropped yet, one will not premiere anytime soon. It’s safe to expect one to arrive sometime after they kick off production in 2021. As soon as Netflix makes one available, we will be sure to share it with everyone!
We’ll be sure to let you know more about The Crown season 5 when we find out! Stay tuned for more information about the fifth installment of one of Netflix’s highest-profile shows.
