There were some rumours later circulating that The Crown season five would be the last ever series of The Crown but Morgan told Deadline in July 2020, “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. “The series creator added, “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day—it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
So, be safe in the knowledge we have at least two new series coming our way. Here’s everything we know so far…
The Crown season 5 release date
The new season will be hitting Netflix in November 2022 but no exact date has been shared yet.
