Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ will run six seasons after all


Showrunner Peter Morgan, has decided to add the sixth season back into the mix for Netflix’s The Crown.

Morgan always had planned for The Crown to run for six seasons, but back in January he announced that the show would come to an end with season five. It looks like he has changed his mind again so that he can do the royal family justice and spend more time on key moments in the monarchy.

Netflix UK & Ireland announced in a series of tweets “News from the palace: we can confirm there will be a sixth (and final) season of @TheCrownNetflix, in addition to the previously announced five!”

The Twitter thread continued on to say “Writer/creator Peter Morgan: “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.”“So to summarise – we’ll have one more season with Queen Olivia Colman, before she passes the crown to Imelda Staunton. We’re just half way through! Lovely.”

Morgan also stated that the the original plan of where the story would conclude still stands, so we won’t get any closer to present day. They will just take more time to tell the story and linger on more important moments.

As we previously reported, the fourth season of The Crown finished production before the pandemic hit, so there is hope that Netflix will release it by the end of 2020.
