Is The Crown season 5 happening?

Everything we know about The Crown season 5 on Netflix so far

You’ve binge-watched The Crown season 4, and now you want more. After all, you need to know what’s in store for the Royal Family next. Is The Crown season 5 happening?

Netflix has a bad habit of canceling great shows. It’s normal to be worried about the fate of The Crown. There is some good news, though.

The Crown season 5 was already confirmed ahead of the fourth season premiering. Creator Peter Morgan already knows the stories that will be told over the course of the next 10 episodes and some of the characters have already been cast.

This is a season that will see another change of the main cast. Imelda Staunton will take over as Queen Elizabeth II and Jonathan Pryce will take over as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Lesley Manville will take on the role of Princess Margaret, and Elizabeth Debicki is confirmed as Princess Diana.

What about Prince Charles? There isn’t a confirmation yet, but the rumor is Dominic West will take on that role.

When will The Crown season 5 release on Netflix?

We’re waiting for the fifth season, though. Filming isn’t going to start until summer 2021, so the season won’t release until sometime in 2022. If Netflix follows the same pattern as before, we’re looking at November or December 2022.

This has been planned. The idea is to take a break and then bring in the new cast. The Crown season 6 is confirmed, and that will film off the back of the fifth season just like previous seasons have worked. We’re probably looking at November or December 2023 for the release of that season.

While it’s disappointing to wait, there is to come. The Crown season 5 will see the divorce of Charles and Diana, Diana’s death, and possibly the deaths of Princess Margaret and The Queen Mother. It depends on the years that the season will cover.

The Crown is available to stream in full so far on Netflix.
