So when is the fifth season releasing? What is the plot? Who is playing the lead role? Continue reading to know further details.
The Crown Plot and Cast
The upcoming Seasons five and six are set to cover the 1990s and as such, the main cast will be the familiar cast of old people, bringing them closer to how we know them today. The BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated actress Imelda Staunton will be playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown seasons five and six. She replaces the role of Olivia Colman, who played it in seasons three and four.
Game of Thrones and The Two Popes star Jonathan Pryce stars as the late Prince Philip in Season 5. This was previously played by Tobias Menzies who recently won an Emmy for his acting in Season Four.
Originally speculated as the final season, the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown will course through Elizabeth II’s reign in the late 20th century, finishing with her reign into the 21st century. Creator Peter Morgan has actually changed his mind on ending the show after all these five seasons, to do the story more “justice”.
The Crown Season 5 will bring a brand new cast, continuing the tradition of the first four seasons, which saw a huge cast overhaul after season two. The first two seasons spanned from 1947 to 1964 and seasons three and four from 1964 till the1990s.
The Crown Season 5 Release Date
The Crown’s new Queen, Imelda Staunton, just revealed that Season 5 will premiere in 9 November 2022 on Netflix. The new season is expected to consist of ten episodes like the first four.
The fifth series of The Crown is going to be the penultimate series, looking at the period in question – the turbulent early 90s – in greater detail.
