As it turned out, the fifth season of The Crown will omit some more current details, such as those concerning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, or Prince Andrew’s friendship ties with Jeffrey Epstein (with all the controversy that entails).
Season 4 ends in 1990, the year Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher left office. From the production it was reported that season five will run through this decade and that the sixth – which has also been confirmed and will be the last – will go until the early 2000s.
The decade of the nineties has several relevant data in the United Kingdom, which will surely be taken into account for the series: the administration of two prime ministers, John Major and Tony Blair. On the other hand, the three eldest sons of the monarch divorced: Ana and Mark Phillips in 1992, Carlos and Diana in 1996, as did Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
But, without a doubt it is in 1997 when the most important event occurs: the death of Diana in a confusing car accident in Paris.
The new millennium also began with notable events: in 2002, both Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother died less than two months apart. Later that year, Queen Elizabeth celebrated her Golden Jubilee, after 50 years of rule.
So far no official release date has been announced, but according to Deadline, the series will not return until 2022 and its production is expected to start in the middle of this year.
As for the new performers, it is known that the actress Imelda Stauntion -who played Dolores Umbridge in the saga of “Harry Potter” – will be the new monarch and the one in charge of carrying the weight in these two new seasons, as has been the case with its predecessors, Claire Foy Y Olivia Colman. “I loved watching The Crown from the beginning.
