The Crown Season 5: Most Awaited Season
Earlier the maker’s team released the most amazing news for fans i.e. there will be a total of 6 seasons in The Crown series. But later onwards when the pandemic hit the entire world, they were back to making the 5th season the last season.
Fans were quite unhappy with the news. Later on, director Morgan revealed that they are going with the original plan and there are going to be 6 seasons and 5th is not going to be the last season.

When the director made such an announcement, it didn’t go well with the British monarchy and they even tried to stop the filming. Not just that, they actually controlled areas which are under their authority and didn’t let the makers shoot at particular locations.
But nothing to worry about now because the maker’s team of The Crown and Netflix are going forward and The Crown Season 6 will be the last season. So enjoy!
The Crown Season 5 Storyline
Various events from the 1990s are going to be added to the 5th season of the show. The year 1992 was named Annus Horribilis i.e. a horrible year because of the tragic accident that happened at the Windsor Royal Palace.
It was the year that witnessed three royal marriage dissolution, including the most popular one of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s.

Not just that, the most controversial interview that happened in 1995 by Princess Diana BBC didn’t do any good. It was the interview in which the common public got to know about many shocking revelations from Diana herself.
Some might even say that the 5th is the season that will cover the incidents up to the early 2000s, but let’s see what happens. The entire world witnessed the tragic demise of Princess Diana in a car accident in 1997 and that too is expected to be covered in The Crown Season 5.
There was a movie about Princess Diana’s death titled The Queen. It was written by The Crown creator Peter Morgan and came out in 2006. The year 1997 was Queen’s Golden Wedding Anniversary.
Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother’s death happened in the same year 2002. But that might not be included in the 5th season. Events from after 2000 might be included in The Crown Season 6.
The Crown Season 5 Trailer
Even after confirming that season 5 and the filming has already started, Netflix has not yet released any official teaser or trailer. Fans have been eagerly waiting to see all the things and incidents that are going to be covered in the 5th season through a trailer.
If not an entire trailer, a teaser will also do, but no. Netflix has no regard for fans’ feelings when it comes to the most awaited season of the most popular series! But not to worry, it is not far when Netflix will be released The Crown Season 5 Trailer.
