All good things must come to an end. And unfortunately, that includes Netflix’s The Crown. Creator Peter Morgan has revealed the hit show will end after the fifth season.
“At the outset, I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons, but now that we have begun work on the stories for season five, it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,” said Morgan. “I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision.”
And that’s not the only news we learned about the series today. The show has also cast their final Queen Elizabeth: Imelda Staunton. Yep, the Harry Potter actress will succeed Claire Foy (seasons 1 and 2) and Olivia Colman (seasons 3 and 4) in the royal role.
