The end creeps ever nearer. The third and final era of The Crown kicks off today with the release of season 5.
This season, kicking off the portrayal of the third era of Queen Elizabeth II’s life, is headed by Imelda Staunton in the leading role along with Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Dominic West as Prince Charles.
The show’s third (and supposedly final) era will be comprised of seasons 5 and 6, with season 6 having been (re)renewed back in 2020. The showrunners were adamant about the show not reaching into modern times, with season 6 being set around the early 2000s. Whether or not this tune will change in light of the Queen’s recent passing remains to be seen.
The Crown season 5 is now available to stream on Netflix. As always, stay tuned for more updates, and make sure to check out all of our other content on the show here.
