The Crown is a television series about Queen Elizabeth II and its reign. Peter Morgan created and principally written the series. Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television produced the series for Netflix. The first season tells about the period from Elizabeth and Philip, the marriage of Duke of Edinburgh in 1947 to the disintegration of her sister Princess Margaret’s engagement to Group Captain Peter Townsend in 1955. So, what is the big reveal regarding The Crown Season 5?
The second season of the series covers the time from the Suez Crisis in 1956 to 1963 which was the time of retirement of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, and the birth of Prince Edward in 1964. The third season revolves around the period between 1964 and 1977. It includes Harold Wilson’s two periods as prime minister and introduces Camilla Shand. It is quite obvious that the fourth spans from 1977 to 1990 and will include Margaret Thatcher’s premiership and introduce Lady Diana Spencer.
The fifth and sixth seasons of the series will end the series. They will cover the Queen’s reign into the 21st century. So, let’s discuss The Crown Season 5.
Is There A Season 5 Actually?
My friend, we have some major news for you. Peter Morgan, the creator of the series said back in January of 2020, that the show would end in season 5. It confirms the fact that there is a season 5. The period drama has been guaranteed through season 6 too now.
Release Date Of Season 5:
Season 1 debuted in November of 2016 and later, season 2 in 2017. Season 3 took a little longer to return back in 2019. Season 4 is going to be out on November 4, 2020.
According to Backstage, production for the fourth season of The Crown began in August 2019 and ended in February 2020. Considering the long gap of almost 2 years between seasons two and three, it can be guessed that the production of season five may not begin before 2021. We do predict that the release date would be in the month of November—but we can’t tell in what year. This is due to widespread filming delays.
The Storyline Of The Season 5 Have Which Years?
Each season of the show roughly covers a decade of royal history, and from context clues, we can guess season 4 will cover the late 1970s to early 1990s. We do know that season 4 will zero in on Prince Charles’ dramatic personal life…which subtly tells that he and Princess Diana’s turbulent relationship will take center stage. They met in 1980 and got married in 1981. About season 5? It is going to be further on the reign of the queen and her personal life along with the foreign affairs involved.
