Netflix Adds ‘Fictional Drama’ to ‘The Crown’ Trailer Description After Backlash

After receiving backlash for its depiction of the Royal Family, Netflix has officially added details that The crown is a fictional dramatization of the Connecting Line from its new Season 5 trailer. It reads: “Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatization tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political events and who shaped his reign.”

As the show prepares for its penultimate season, a Netflix spokesperson said Variety, “The Crown has always been presented as a drama based on historical events. The fifth series is a fictional dramatization, imagining what might have happened behind closed doors during an important decade for the royal family – a decade that has already been examined and well documented by journalists, biographers and historians.

British actress Dame Judi Dench has been one of the most recent public figures to call the show “grossly unfair” and to demand a disclaimer at the start of each episode. Additionally, former prime minister Sir John Major, who will be played by Jonny Lee Miller, blasted some scenes as a “barrel of malevolent nonsense”.

The show’s fifth season is set to follow Queen Elizabeth II, played by Imelda Staunton, as she deals with political and personal turmoil, including the impending divorce between her son Prince Charles, played by Dominic West, and the Princess Diana, played by Elizabeth Debicki. . According Variety, Buckingham Palace officials are concerned about how the new king’s affair with Camilla Parker Bowles will be portrayed.

Meanwhile, the crew members prepare to film Diana’s tragic death scene, which will occur in the sixth and final season. While the creators have repeatedly said that the crash itself will not be shown, a production source said Deadline there is a “certain anxiety” and there is a “palpable sense of being nervous” about filming the scenes.

The crown Season 5 is set to release on Netflix on November 9.
