The Crown’s showrunner, Peter Morgan, confirmed in January 2020 that season five would be the series’ final chapter. “I had envisioned The Crown extending for six seasons at the outset, but now that we have begun work on the tales for season five, it has become clear to me that this is the appropriate time and place to finish,” Morgan told the Hollywood Reporter. “I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for their assistance in making this decision.”

Nonetheless, the original plan to run for six seasons has been reinstated.

“As we began to consider the stories for Series 5, it quickly became evident that in order to do credit to the richness and complexity of the story, we need go back to the original concept and do six seasons,” Morgan remarked to the Hollywood Reporter, confirming the news alongside Netflix.

Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content, also shared her thoughts: “With each new season, The Crown raises the bar even higher. We can’t wait for the forthcoming fourth season, and we’re thrilled to support Peter’s vision and the incredible cast and crew for a sixth and final season.”

So there will be more Crown. Here’s what we know so far regarding the sixth chapter of the show.

Even with one more season, the show won’t make it to the present day.

Expect to see no dramatizations of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s choice to leave the royal family or any of the fallout from Harry’s Forthcoming book. Morgan stated unequivocally, “season six will not move us any closer to the present – it will merely allow us to cover the same era in greater depth.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot will conclude in the 2000s.

The Crown Season 6 Release Date

Netflix has not officially revealed when The Crown season six will return but based on past releases, fresh episodes are expected to debut around November 2023.

But, things may be different this time around because filming for season six was halted following the Queen’s death.

In an interview with Deadline, writer Peter Morgan described his choice in greater detail: “The Crown is a love letter to her, and I have nothing to say but silence and respect for the time being. We’ll probably cease filming as well, out of respect.”

When The Crown first premiered in 2016, filmmaker Stephen Daldry intimated that backup measures for the Queen’s death were already in place (via Deadline): “Nobody knows when that time may come, but it would be appropriate to pay respect to the Queen. It would be a simple act of remembrance and respect. It’s what we should do because she’s a global figure.”

With all of this in mind, it’s highly likely that season six of The Crown may premiere in December 2023, or perhaps early 2024.

The Crown Season 6 Cast

Because The Crown is an even-numbered season, there will be no big cast replacements in the primary central characters. As a result, all of the following actors are likely to return for season six:

Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II
• Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip
• Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret
• Jonny Lee Miller as John Major
• Dominic West as Charles, Prince of Wales
• Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales
• Marcia Warren as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother
• Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles
• Claudia Harrison as Princess Anne
• James Murray as Prince Andrew
• Khalid Abdalla as Dodi Fayed
• Bertie Carvel as Tony Blair
• Timothy Dalton as Peter Townsend

For The Crown’s final season, two different actors will play Prince William at various ages.

In the series, Rufus Kampa will play Prince William when he is 15 years old, and Ed McVey will take over during William’s late teens and early adult years. McVey will play William during the start of his romance with Kate, who will be played throughout the series by Meg Bellamy.

A fresh set shot gives our first glimpse at Ed McVey in the character of Prince William ahead of season six on November 28, 2022.

McVey is clothed in a black jacket with a shirt and tie. Initially, the likeness between McVey and a younger Prince William is uncanny, continuing the show’s tradition of outstanding casting.

Of course, an older version of Prince Harry will appear with William in the next season, though no one has been formally cast in the role as of yet. According to rumors, Harry’s casting began in October 2022, so we should hear anything soon on that front.

Tristan Gemmill, who fled the cobblestone streets three years ago in the heartbreaking Christmas special, will also appear in season six. Yet, his character is still unknown at the time of writing.

Most shockingly, Loose Women’s Kelly Brook has stated that she will make a surprise appearance in The Crown season six. Not in the flesh, to be sure.

Kelly’s early modelling days in the 1990s will be shown in the backdrop at one point, so she had to approve a picture clearance request.

“My agency sent me an email. ‘We have received a picture permission request for one of your images to be used in The Crown season six,’ she added. It’d be printed as a poster and displayed in one of the characters’ changing rooms.’ “Heart FM’s Brook said (via Daily Star).

“That has to be a bedroom for a teenage male. Could I be on the wall of Prince Harry or Prince William’s Buckingham Palace bedroom? Was I a pin-up model for them in the 1990s? How old were they at the time? This is very great. Of course, I said sure.”

The Crown Season 6 Plot

Following an early table read in August 2022, star Dominic West told Deadline that the final season “would be as chaotic as it gets”. And he’s not wrong, because The Crown will eventually show Princess Diana’s awful death on television at this point.

According to one of Deadline’s sources, there was “anxiety behind the scenes” before filming that sequence, even though Diana’s death will not be portrayed on screen.

“This is something we’ve been dreading,” a source told Deadline. “The countdown has begun, and while we are proceeding gently, it is fair to admit that there is some nervousness, a palpable sensation of being on the verge. I mean, there’s a bombshell sensitivity to this one.”

That’s most likely why the writers chose to focus on the events leading up to Diana’s death, followed by the aftermath. For many, depicting the crash in its entirety would be a step too far.

Nothing else has been revealed plot-wise, but given the era, this final season will cover, key events we expect to see include: the Queen and Prince Philip’s golden wedding anniversary (1997), the Queen Mother’s and Princess Margaret’s deaths (2002), the Queen’s Golden Jubilee (2002), and Prince Charles and Camilla’s marriage (2005), as well as more glimpses of Tony Blair’s time in office (1997-2007).

Going farther forward, where will The Crown’s final season end up? Will it ever make it to current events?

Producer Suzanne Mackie confirmed to Broadcast that showrunner Peter Morgan will not proceed beyond the early 2000s for the following reasons: “Peter has stated emphatically that he just cannot create something unless he has had time to get sufficient perspective. I believe he has always felt that 10 years is the minimum length of time he needs to examine something from a historical perspective in order to truly appreciate it.”Morgan has a history of changing his mind about the conclusion, so will this plan come to fruition?

“I don’t think he’ll change his mind,” Mackie continued. “We’ve all heard these stories, but what Peter does beautifully is dig beneath the surface and comprehend the landscape in a more nuanced, sophisticated, and surprising way.”
