Finally, some good news for the fans of hit Netflix period drama The Crown as they wait for a new season: Netflix and Peter Morgan, the show-runner, have backpedaled on their earlier statement about The Crown ending with the fifth season. They have just announced that there will be the sixth season and it will be the final one.
But who’s to say that there won’t be another season after the sixth, as so much has happened with the royal family in this century. The sixth season of the show promises to take us into the lives of royal family members, Queen Elizabeth II’s in particular, during the early 2000s. Fans claim that any season after the sixth could follow along with the recent royal family related events and controversies such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “Megxit” and so much more. Here’s everything we know about season 6-
What can we expect from season 6 of The Crown?
The good news came after Peter Morgan, the show-runner, reconsidered his decision to end the show after season 5 to give more time and attention to the last leg of the show’s story. This resulted in Netflix ordering the sixth season, much to the delight of the show’s fans. This sixth season will most likely cover the period during early 2000s to almost present. During the early 2000s, we saw the death of the Queen Mother and people’s favorite, Princess Margaret.
The entire world mourned and expressed sorrow for the demise of these two wonderful women. It is unclear where the storyline might go on from that point on, with some suggesting that it may take on relatively recent events in the royal family such as Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding and the following that, their mutual decision to step down as senior members of the royal family.
Will season 6 be the end of the show?
In an interview with a leading Hollywood magazine, Peter Morgan said that he is elated at Netflix’s decision to allow him more time to end the show, to give it more richness and complexity. He went on to add that he could not see the show depicting present-day events in the sixth season but rather, the sixth season be used to add more details to the show. This has put an end to the rumours going around that say season 6 will cover “Megxit”. Although, this does not necessarily mean the end for the show as a subsequent revival has happened before, so it may happen again. The Crown is the most popular show right now in its genre of political period dramas, and one of the most-watched shows on Netflix right now. So fans feel that it would be a shame if the series ends prematurely.
The story so far
In the past 3 seasons of The Crown we saw the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II to Philip Mountbatten, the reign and retirement of Winston Churchill, Princess Margaret rejecting Peter Townsend’s proposal for marriage, the Suez Canal crisis, new Prime ministers coming in and retiring, the Profumo scandal and much more.
When will season 6 come out?
Only 3 seasons of the show have streamed on Netflix with the fourth one coming later this year, and the fifth will likely follow next year (late 2021). So it stands to reason that the sixth season will come out no sooner than 2022. As for the cast of season 6, nothing can be said for certain as there have been several changes in the cast in the previous seasons with characters dying or getting too old to be played by the same person. One thing that is for sure is that Imelda Staunton (think Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter series) will play the role of Queen Elizabeth II till the end of the show.
