According to reports, the finale will focus on events from the late 1990s and early 2000s. With its upcoming final season, The Crown is saying goodbye.
Netflix has confirmed that the show would return for a sixth season in 2020, despite the fact that the recently aired fifth season was supposed to be the last.
When discussing the plot for Series 5, creator Peter Morgan remarked, “It became evident that in order to do credit to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.”
Season 5’s actors, notably Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, are anticipated to return for the current season, with the exception of a few new recruits to the group.
This is all you need to know about the upcoming sixth season of The Crown, from the new characters to the time period that will be explored.
Who will be returning for Season 6 of The Crown?
There will likely be a large majority of the same actors back for season 6, including Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, and Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles.
Who else will be appearing in The Crown Season 6?
The actors cast as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (now the Prince and Princess of Wales) in the upcoming season were revealed by Netflix in September 2022.
Meg Bellamy, a relative newcomer, will play Kate, while Rufus Kampa and Ed McVey, respectively, will play Prince William at different stages of his life.
A casting announcement for Prince Harry, William’s younger brother, has not been made yet, but Netflix did put out a casting call for the role the following month.
What exactly happens in season 6 of The Crown?
Season 5 focused heavily on the breakup of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage, but season 6 is said to shift its focus to William and Harry.
The casting of Kate has also sparked rumors that the show will focus on the beginning of her romance with Prince William while they were both students at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Set photos of Debicki wearing a gown evocative of what Diana wore the day before she died in 1997 suggest that the series would also focus on the last days of Diana’s life.
However, Netflix confirmed that the impact of Diana’s Paris automobile disaster would be left out of the series.
When is the release date of The Crown season 6 ?
Season 6 will purportedly take place between 1997 (when Princess Diana died) and 2001 (when Prince William and Kate Middleton began dating at St. Andrews), spanning the late 1990s and early 2000s.
When did the Filming for Season 6 of The Crown began?
Production on the sixth season started in September 2022 but was halted after the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8. Morgan said in a statement to Deadline, “The Crown is a love letter to [the Queen], and I’ve nothing to say, for now, only silence and respect.”
Production resumed in Spain a few days later, with Debicki spotted back on set portraying Princess Diana’s 1997 visit to Bosnia.
When can we expect to see The Crown season 6 on Netflix?
There is no confirmed airdate for season 6 of The Crown at this time. Even though filming for the last season began in September 2022, we probably won’t see it until late 2023.
