Netflix welcomes the chronicles of the Elizabethan era, The Crown with its fifth season
It’s been two years that fans have been waiting for the revival of the show and it’s finally happening this year in the month of November. The official YouTube page dropped a video a year ago giving us the first glimpse of the upcoming season. The series will be set in the English-landed gentry of the early to mid-90s of the British Empire.
The new season of The Crown is reportedly coming with a massive change of cast. Among the new faces, there’d be Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret. Some others include Countess of Snowdon Jonny Lee Miller as John Major, Prime Minister, and Flora Montgomery as Norma Major. Prince Charles will be played by Dominic West and Princess of Wales will be taken over as Elizabeth Debicki.
The most awaited entry of the upcoming season is that of Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana. After so many actresses playing this royal role in the past, this seems to be the most promising role play of all time. While the casting directors seem to face questions about other assigned actors, Elizabeth’s resemblance with Princess Diana is going to be uncanny. The first official look at her character left all of us stunned.
A recap and the anticipated storyline of the upcoming season
Imelda Staunton on board switches from an unacceptable character to one sweet old soul effectively making the streamers grounded. With many such enhancements in the show, it’s refreshing to get down to the bones of these characters.
This season will likely be covering the separation of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princess Anne and Mark Phillips and of course Prince Charles and Princess Diana. The fire that broke out at Windsor Castle also seems to be addressed in the season. The fire would be closely followed the by heartbreaking separation and the tragic death of Diana and a lot more intricate details about the royal family.
So hold your breaths and keep up the wait for the showrunners to drop season 5 sooner than anticipated.
