Finally, Netflix revealed the release date of season five of the popular royal series The Crown.
The streamer shared the news at the annual Tudum fan event confirming this Crown season 5 premiere on Wednesday, November 9.
We’ve known for some time that Season 5 of The Crown will hit the screens in November (Netflix revealed the same at last year’s Tudum event), but so far the streamer hasn’t talked about the exact date of the show’s return.
Imelda Staunton will inherit the role of the late Queen Elizabeth II from Olivia Colman in new episodes of The Crown, which explore the end of Charles and Diana’s marriage, John Major’s time as Prime Minister, and the Queen’s annus horribilis in 1992.
Jonathan Pryce plays Prince Philip, while Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki play Charles and Diana, respectively. Lesley Manville will play the role of Princess Margaret, and Jonny Lee Miller will be cast as John Major. Head over to our dedicated Season 5 The Crown Hub for a detailed rundown of the rest of the cast for the upcoming season.

Waiting for fans for The Crown’s return has been longer than usual – but no wonder given the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, the program scheduled a hiatus for a year long before the virus began presenting numerous production challenges to the entertainment world.
Regarding the show’s future beyond season 5, we know that Season 6 of The Crown – which will be the show’s final installment – has already begun, although shooting has been temporarily suspended following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September.
Referring to the news of her departure, The Crown showrunner Peter Morgan said: “The Crown is a love letter to … [the Queen] and for now I have nothing to add, just silence and respect ”.
Crown Season 5 is not the only new one Netflix series I’m headed to the streamer in november. Wednesday, the resurgence of beloved comedy-horror series The Addams Family, also has received the November release dateand string new Netflix movies are to join both concerts in the same month.
