Before we get into the weeds of this article, let’s talk about what happened in The Crown Season 5. First off, here’s a plot synopsis of the fifth season (courtesy of Netflix):

With the new decade in its stride, the Royal Family are presented with possibly their biggest challenge to date; as the public openly question their role in ’90s Britain.

As Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession, she reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television and the twilight of the British Empire. Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home.

Prince Charles (Dominic West) pressures his mother to allow him to divorce Diana (Elizabeth Debicki), presenting a constitutional crisis of the monarchy. Rumours circulate as husband and wife are seen to live increasingly separate lives and, as media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of her own narrative, breaking with family protocol to publish a book that undermines public support for Charles and exposes the cracks in the House of Windsor.

Tensions are set to rise further as Mohamed Al Fayed (Salim Daw) arrives on the scene. Driven by his desire for acceptance of the highest order, he harnesses his self-made wealth and power to try and earn him and his son Dodi (Khalid Abdalla) a seat at the royal table.

Is The Crown Season 6 happening? Yes. It is. However, it’ll also be the show’s final season, which I’m sure will upset many of the series’ fans. This was revealed by Netflix’s UK & Ireland Twitter account.

Here’s  what they had to say on the sixth and final season of the show:

News from the palace: we can confirm there will be a sixth (and final) season of @TheCrownNetflix, in addition to the previously announced five!

So, when will the sixth season be released? Well, the good news is that Season 6 is definitely in the works, and filming began in August 2022. At one point the series was set to end after five seasons (having originally been earmarked for six), yet the show’s creator Peter Morgan decided to revert to his initial plan and split the final season into two to give greater detail into the show’s storyline.

Here’s what Morgan had to say on the matter:

As we started to discuss the storylines for series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.

So, with this in mind, it does seem as though the sixth season will be released in 2023. They are already filming, so it shouldn’t be long before the production is finished and then the series will go into post-production, which could take a few months. We estimate that The Crown Season 6 will be released on Netflix in the third or fourth quarter of 2023.

The sixth season is going to cover quite a lot of stuff. One of the main things it’ll go over will be the death of Princess Diana, which was a pretty horrible moment in history and for the Royal Family who came under a lot of scrutiny and criticism following her death in Paris.

The other thing that it will cover is the beginning of William and Kate Middleton’s romance at university. I’m sure people will be very excited to see all of that unfold.

You can stream all five seasons of The Crown on Netflix right now.
