Fresh out of the heels of The crownThe triumphant sweep of the Emmys last weekend, Netflix announced that The crown Season 5 will premiere in November 2022. That royal release date was revealed by none other than the new Queen Elizabeth II herself, Imelda Staunton, at the TUDUM global fan event. That means the hit drama will return to Netflix’s lineup as its first Thanksgiving show.
Created by Peter Morgan, The crown tells the story of the royal family through the decades of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. In the first two seasons, the Monarch was played by Claire Foy, while Oscar and Emmy winner Olivia Colman took the throne for seasons 3 and 4. The crown revamps the cast every two seasons to reflect how the characters have aged and how public perception of the monarchy has changed over the past century. In season 5, The crown will tackle some of the most tumultuous years the Royal Family has ever seen. More specifically, the 1990s.
Joining Staunton for Season 5 are Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Jonny Lee Miller as Prime Minister John Major, Dominic West as Prince Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana. Netflix recently shared a first glimpse of Debicki and West in costume on Twitter.
Time will tell if The crown Season 5 may follow The crown Awards Season 4 shows the fame, but at the very least we have a lot to look forward to in Staunton’s Queen Elizabeth and Elizabeth Debicki’s very tall, very glamorous, and very sad Lady Di.
The crown Season 5 will premiere on Netflix in November 2022.
