Season 5 of The Crown is just around the corner, and we still haven’t seen a trailer for the next part of the popular Netflix drama. However, that doesn’t mean we have no idea what to expect from the next batch of episodes.
Because the show is based on a true story, we have a rough idea of what Chapter Five will be like. It will take place during John Major and Tony Blair’s tenures as Prime Minister, and will see the Queen’s rule transition into the 21st century. It will likely focus on the annulment of Diana Spencer and Prince Charles’ marriage, as well as the death of the former. We know who’s playing who (since the entire cast has been switched for a second time), we’ve looked at some of the posed photos, and we’ve also had a look at Imelda Staunton’s Elizabeth II, all of which are shown below.
So if you’re looking to ramp up the excitement before you hit play later this year, or just want to know when The Crown Season 5 releases, keep scrolling, we’ve got you covered. Needless to say, this article mentions the events covered in Season 4 of The Crown, so if you’re not familiar with the royal family (and their past) and aren’t on the lookout for the show, spoilers beware. Well let’s do that… The Crown Season 5 release date hasn’t been announced yet, but we know it’s coming sometime in November 2022. We’ll update this piece as soon as we know more.
Netflix hasn’t confirmed how many episodes Season 5 will include, but since the last three episodes consist of ten episodes, it seems likely that this one will do the same. The streaming software doesn’t actually do weekly releases, so you can expect to watch all the episodes go down at the same time, and you’ll be able to decide how quickly you watch everything.
