Sadly, fans will have to wait quite some time before they’re able to see Debicki, West and others portray members of the royal family. In late September, Imelda Staunton appeared in a video from The Crown set to announce: “On behalf of the cast and crew, we look forward to bringing you the next season of The Crown in November 2022.”
But it’s not all bad news. Show creator and writer Peter Morgan originally said that he and the writers planned to end the show with season five. However, Morgan later explained, “As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.”
It’s no wonder the streamer is moving forward with a sixth season. At the 2021 Emmys, the program took home numerous awards, including Outstanding Drama Series.
Will they do it again with season five? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
