The Crown, the fictionalized series of the life of the royal family that has been a huge success since its launch in 2016, is gearing up for its next season.
Indeed, the series’ producers have confirmed to Variety that filming for season 5 is set to begin in July.
Despite the fact that England has been hit hard by the Covid-19 crisis, restrictions are beginning to ease, fully enabling Netflix to shoot the series in July at Elstree Studios in North London, where most of the series has been shot.
For season 5, a brand new cast will be on hand to play the iconic roles. Tenet star Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana, while Prince Charles will be played by Dominic West, Imelda Staunton will play the Queen, and Lesley Manville will play Princess Margaret.
This upcoming season is highly anticipated and is expected to be very popular, as the series is breaking audience records, the previous season saw the arrival of Princess Diana played by Emma Corrin, which attracted a large audience and brought in awards such as the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards.
The series created by Peter Morgan has been following the royal family through different eras for several years. Last season followed the relationship between Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Season 5 will jump back in time to the early 1990s, a turbulent time for the royal family.
No date for when the season will premiere has been revealed yet but fans of the show are very much looking forward to the new season.
