Ready for more? The crown has captivated viewers since its first season in November 2016 – and the drama shows no signs of slowing down.
The Netflix hit began by telling the story of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September 2022, and her decades-long reign and marriage to Prince Philip, who died in April 2021. As the series continued, new story lines were introduced, including the whirlwind romance and the chaotic breakup between Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. With the show fast approaching modern times, creators Pete Morgan has carefully mapped out the themes of the upcoming fifth season.
“Nobody tries to censor me. Nobody has ever tried to correct what I’m doing or censor what I’m doing,” Morgan said The Hollywood Reporter in August 2020 and admitted that he met with former palace aides “on a completely informal and impersonal basis” to update them on what’s to come in future episodes. “I don’t want anything to do with the palace and the palace doesn’t want anything to do with me. … I only write what I want to write.”
In January 2020, Morgan announced that Netflix had renewed the historical play for a fifth and final season, despite originally slated six episodes. At the time, he felt like he’d found “the perfect time and place to quit,” but six months later, the streaming service greenlit season 6.
“As we began discussing storylines for Series 5, it quickly 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,” said the screenwriter meeting in July 2020.
The possibility of continuing the story for a sixth season will “allow us to cover the same period in more detail,” but likely “won’t get us any closer to the present,” he clarified, hinting that neither is the case Prince Harry still Megan Markle will be featured in future seasons.
After Season 4 explores what happened between Charles, Diana and Duchess Camilla Behind the palace walls, fans are expecting upcoming episodes to cover the Princess of Wales’ controversial BBC interview and her death in 1997. Emma Korinwho received a Golden Globe for Best Actress – TV Series-Drama for her performance as Diana, will not return in Season 5.
Although the aftermath of their shocking 2020 retirement won’t play out on the small screen, Harry and Meghan are some of many members of the British royal family to blame The crown‘s portrayal of royal life. After learning the Sussexes had watched part of the Netflix series, Corrin opened up TheWrap It was “interesting” to hear her perspective.
“Personally, I try not to dwell on it because I feel like it’s a slippery slope and when I start worrying about who saw it and what they’re thinking, it gets stressful,” he said her in June 2021, adding that she could “sit comfortably.” “I knew the series wasn’t trying to be a documentary. “It’s his own thing. But in a way, I don’t think it can ever fully detach itself from the reality it touches and is influenced by.”
