The story of the Crown is based on an award-winning play, “The Audience” by Peter Morgan. Its storyline revolves around the life of Queen Elizabeth II since the year 1940. This is a historical series that engages people of all ages due to its intriguing storyline. Totally five seasons of this show have been on air until now, and producers have good news for their fans about releasing The Crown Season 6, which will be the last one.
The Crown Season 6 Release Date
The announcement of season 6 is big news for the fans. But till now, no official release date is given. According to the show’s creator, for doing justice to the complex and intriguing storyline of the Crown, there will be a season 6. The sixth season won’t bring us anywhere near the present age, but it’ll surely cover that period in greater detail. As per the reports, filming for the sixth season has not started yet.
Filming of the show
Initially, the show was going to wrap up in five seasons but later changed their decision. According to news reports, this decision was again reversed. The reason explained is that the real stories on which the show is based are quite complex, and things can only become clear if shown in detail. So, currently, as per the creators, season 6 will be the last and final season of the show.
According to media reports, the shooting will begin in mid of 2021. That means it will not be on air until the start of 2022.
The Cast of The Crown Season 6
As the show is based on real-life stories of the British Royal family, the cast of the show changes as the characters age in the story. Therefore, we will be seeing some major changes in the cast members of the show.
In this season, we will see Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II. It will be a joy for viewers to see Imelda, an Oscar award Nominee, in a major role. Elizabeth Debicki will be playing Princess Diana. At the same time, Jonathan Pryce will play the role of Prince Philips. Diana’s spouse Prince Charles is going to be Dominic West. The actors playing the other four children of the Queen and Prince Philips are not confirmed yet and will be announced later.
The Crown Season 6 Plot
Considering that season 5 focused on the 1990s, we are pretty much sure that the focus of season 6 will be kept high in the 2000s. The 1990s was not a good time for the Royal family as three marriages broke in 1992, and the Queen refers to it as a horrible Year. So, there are fat chances that the plot of season 6 will include all the hard times the royal family had to bear. As per expectations, it is believed that season 6 will be around the rule of two prime ministers John Major (1990-97) and Tony Blair (1997-2007), and the events of that time will play a major part in this season.
Additionally, we will also be seeing the death of Queen’s mother and legitimizing Charles and Camila Parker’s relationship in season 6. As far as the Queen’s age is concerned, we will see the queen in her seventies.
The series never fails to attract its fans, and hence the audience is waiting impatiently for a new Season. Season 6 will unfold all the unheard stories of ‘The Crown’ as it will be the final season. Meanwhile, it will also put all the personal intrigues and political rivalries to an end after this season.
