The Crown’s fifth season recently debuted on Netflix, but we’re already looking ahead and reporting on all of the details for the upcoming sixth and final season. Filming on the series began in September, and it is expected to return to Netflix by the end of 2023. The Crown, created by Peter Morgan, has become one of Netflix’s most popular Originals. The Crown has been one of the most expensive shows ever made, with each season costing more than $100 million to produce. Originally, only five seasons were planned, but as production on the fifth season began, Peter Morgan reversed his decision and a sixth season was announced.
The Crown has won 129 of the 423 awards it has been nominated for throughout the course of its first four seasons. The Crown won all seven of the drama categories at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2021, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Olivia Colman’s portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II, joining Claire Foy, who also won a Primetime Emmy for the role.
Who are the Season 6 cast members of The Crown?
The majority of the season 5 cast should return for season 6 in their respective roles.
Imelda Staunton – Queen Elizabeth II
Jonathan Pryce – Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Lesley Manville – Princess Margaret
Dominic West – Prince Charles
The Crown’s sixth and concluding season’s casting for Prince William and Kate Middleton was revealed on September 3, 2022. Meg Bellamy, who responded to a casting call on social media, is making her acting debut as Kate Middleton. She was given the part after making an impression during her self-taped tryouts. In the sixth season, Ed McVey, 21, and Rufus Kampa, 16, who are both actors, will play Prince William. This will be their professional screen debuts.
What can we expect from Season 6 of The Crown?
Since the fifth season of The Crown has been released, we can make some educated predictions about the historical occurrences we may anticipate to witness in the sixth season. We were very shocked that the passing of Princess Diana wasn’t addressed in the fifth season, which allows a lot of things to happen in the next sixth season.
The death of Princes Diana, and Dodi Fayed
The new Millenium
Prince Harry’s one day of rehab
The death of Princess Margaret
The death of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother
The Iraq War
Due to the passing of her late sister, Princess Margaret, in February 2002, the early 2000s were some of Queen Elizabeth’s most difficult years. The Queen Mother passed away a month later in March 2002 at the age of 101. The Royal Family was still coping with the effects of Lady Diana’s passing before the deaths of two of her closest relatives. Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, confronted him when he was 16 years old after learning that Harry had been frequently using marijuana and consuming alcohol. Prince Harry was transferred to Featherstone Lodge in Peckham, a heroin detox facility, to learn about the perils of drug and alcohol abuse.
George W. Bush, a Republican, was elected as the 43rd President of the United States due to events outside the United Kingdom. The tragic events of 9/11 took place during his first year in office, eventually prompting the US and its allies to enter the Iraq War and the War on Terror.
When will Season 6 of The Crown premiere on Netflix?
