We’re sure you’re as excited as we are for another season of pure royalty. Read on to know more.
According to Variety, Season 5 of The Crown was set to begin filming in London in July 2021, and production is currently started. In late August, Netflix released the first images of the new Prince Charles and Princess Diana, who look to be dissatisfied.
According to Netflix content head Ted Sarandos, Morgan’s first pitch for the show contained six seasons, which he confirmed in November 2016.
However, in late January 2020, Deadline reported that the show’s fifth season will be it’s final. The decision was overturned again in July. The show has been renewed for a sixth season, according to Morgan.
This means The Crown may miss out on some content possibilities, such as when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their plans to step down from their main royal duties in early 2020, shocking the monarchy.
The Crown Season 5 Release Date
Season 5 will premiere in November 2022, according to a tweet. Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter actor) will play the role of Queen Elizabeth II. Staunton’s casting rumors initially appeared in November 2019, just after the third season of Game of Thrones premiered.

The report was confirmed by Deadline in late January 2020. In Season 4 of The Crown, Emma Corrin made her long-awaited debut as a young Diana Spencer, the soon-to-be princess in love. Her once-fantastic marriage to Prince Charles was disintegrating by the conclusion of the season.
