Over the years, Crown has been one of Netflix’s most popular titles. The amount of its popularity can be reflected by the fact that the show is currently in its fifth season and has been already renewed for a sixth. But when will the fifth season be released? And what will happen? Here’s everything a fan must know about The Crown Season 5.
The Crown Season 5: When Is The Release Date?
The filming was supposed to stop on December 18, ahead of the Christmas break, to resume again in 2022. Instead ended a day earlier due to a series of tests for Covid positive results. A rep from the show told Metro :
“The Crown finished filming a day earlier than scheduled for the Christmas break, following some positive cases within the team, thus ensuring everyone’s safety and the opportunity to enjoy the holidays with loved ones.”
As for the release of the fifth season, it is being reported that the new season will premiere sometime in late-2022, possibly near November 2022.
What Is The Plot Of The Crown Season 5?
Seasons of The Crown covered different periods in the Queen’s life. The first two tell of youth and marriage with Philip of Edinburgh until the birth of their last child. Filling the role of the young Elizabeth II was Claire Foy, who with her performance also won a Golden Globe for Best Actress and was highly acclaimed by critics. In the third season, Olivia Colman took his place, keeping him also in the fourth, not disappointing the fans’ expectations at all.
According to Vogue UK, the new season of the TV series should cover the 90s, as season 4 ended precisely in 1990, with the resignation of Margaret Thatcher, which was followed by the appointment of John Major as Prime Minister. A rather tricky moment for the Queen, especially in 1992, which she defined as her annus horribilis, during which the fire at Windsor Castle also took place.
The decade in question also includes Lady Diana’s tragic demise, which will be addressed in season five and her impact on the royal family. According to the first advances, the famous interview that Lady D released on the BBC Panorama program in 1995 will re-enter the new episodes. She publicly accused Camilla Parker Bowles of the end of her marriage. “There were three of us in this wedding, so it was a bit crowded,” she declared.
Another story fans are hoping to see on the small screen is Prince William and Kate Middleton during their university years. However, with the confirmation that there will also be the sixth season, it could be part of the final chapter, which should cover the 2000s. Of course, we will discover more details on the plot only later.
