Re: The Crown - On Netflix 11/15/20

Queen Elizabeth II’s reign on the throne just got a little longer.


Thanks to The Crown creator/executive producer Peter Morgan changing his mind about the fifth season finale doubling as a series finale, the Netflix historical drama now will continue for an unexpected sixth season.


“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” said Morgan.


According to the EP, Season 6 will not bring the story’s timeline closer to present-day, but will allow the series to explore the same time period in greater detail.

We watched the first season and loved it. Didn't even make it through last season, it was awful.

Oh yes I meant I'm glad they replaced Helena Bonham Carter.  I thought that was this season but now that you say that, I remember they said in the future seasons.  Oh well I'll still be watching.

Re: The Crown - On Netflix 11/15/20

I am glad to see The Crown returning in November 2020. I knew they filmed Season 3 and 4 back to back. There will be a much longer wait between Seasons 4 and 5.  I didn't enjoy Season 3 just like so many others have stated. Princess Diana was only a year older than me so I am really looking forward to her prescence in the series. I should remember many of the events that occurred during this time period.
