The Crown Season 6 Expected Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer, And More

This can now be considered canonical! After much speculation, Netflix has officially announced that The Crown Season 6 will be the last. Back when the show originally started, that was the goal, but eventually, things changed and The Crown was cancelled after season five.
Thankfully, Peter Morgan, the show’s creator, changed his mind about that in July 2020. If you’re curious about the possible reasons for it, check out his official statement from Netflix: It became apparent early on in the planning of Series 5 that returning to the original idea of six seasons was necessary to do credit to the richness and complexity of the plot.
Grab some tea and settle in as we examine the details of the upcoming sixth season of The Crown on Netflix here at Digital Spy.

The Crown Season 6 on Netflix or Other Streaming Services

There is still no official word from Netflix on when we might expect to see the return of The Crown for season six, but based on the show’s track record, we can probably expect new episodes to drop sometime around November 2023.
Although given that production on season six was put on hold after the death of the Queen, things could be different this time around.
Author Peter Morgan gave Deadline an in-depth interview in which he discussed this choice, saying: “There’s nothing more I can say at this time than to respect her privacy and acknowledge that The Crown is an adoring tribute to her.
Because of the gravity of the situation, I believe we will also cease filming out of respect.” Even before the first season of The Crown aired in 2016, director Stephen Daldry intimated (via Deadline) that provisions had been made for the eventual death of the Queen: “No one can predict when that moment will be, but when it does come, it’s only right that we pay our respects to the Queen. It would be a small gesture of appreciation. After all, she is a famous person all over the world.” In light of the foregoing, it is very plausible that season six of The Crown will premiere in December 2023 or perhaps early 2024.

How About That Cast For The Crown Season 6?

No substantial cast changes have been made to the primary central characters of The Crown given this is an even-numbered season. Thus, the following actors are confirmed to return for Season 6:
  •  Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II
  • Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip
  •  Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret
  •  Jonny Lee Miller as John Major
  •  Dominic West as Charles, Prince of Wales
  •  Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales
  •  Marcia Warren as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother
  •  Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles
  •  Claudia Harrison as Princess Anne
  •  James Murray as Prince Andrew
  •  Khalid Abdalla as Dodi Fayed
  •  Bertie Carvel as Tony Blair
  •  Timothy Dalton as Peter Townsend
Additionally, two actors have been cast as Prince William to portray him at two distinct ages throughout the show’s final season. Prince William will be played by Rufus Kampa, a teenager until he is 15 years old, and then Ed McVey, a young adult, will take over the role until the end of the series. Meg Bellamy will portray Kate throughout the series, and Iain McVey will play William from the beginning of his relationship with her.

Even though he left the cobblestone streets of Coronation Street three years ago in the devastating Christmas special, Tristan Gemmill will return for season six. Unfortunately, his personality is still shrouded in mystery at this time of writing.
Kelly Brook, the host of Loose Women, has also confirmed that she will appear in an unexpected cameo role in the upcoming sixth season of The Crown.

Well, Not In The Flesh, So To Speak

Kelly had to give her blessing for an image clearance request because a picture from her early 1990s modelling days will be in the backdrop.
“My agency just sent me an email. They wanted to utilise one of your photos for Season 6 of The Crown, she stated. A poster like this would be made and displayed in one of the characters’ changing rooms “According to the Daily Star, Brook stated.
That’s a teenage boy’s room for sure,” Kelly agreed. “Is there a chance my likeness may hang in Prince Harry‘s or Prince William’s Buckingham Palace room? Were they using me as a pin-up in the ’90s? If you could travel back in time, how old would they have been? What an amazing turn of events. I agreed to this.”

The Crown Season 6 Plot: What will happen?

Dominic West, after seeing the script for the last season early in August 2022, told Deadline that it “will be as chaotic as it gets.” And he’s right: This will be the first time in The Crown that Diana’s awful death is seen.
Even though Diana’s actual death will not be revealed on screen, one of Deadline’s sources said there was an atmosphere of “anxiety behind the scenes” before filming that moment. We’ve been dreading this moment, our insider tells Deadline.
“It’s fair to say that there is some nervousness; a distinct sensation of being slightly on the edge, even though we’re calmly moving on like nothing is wrong and the clock is down to two weeks. This is a sensitive topic on the scale of a bombshell.”
So it seems sensible that the writers would choose to concentrate on the events leading up to Diana’s death and the subsequent fallout instead. Many people think it would be inappropriate to show the entire crash scene on screen. Where, if anywhere, will The Crown’s final season ultimately lead? When, if ever, will it catch up to current happenings?
As producer Suzanne Mackie told Broadcast, showrunner Peter Morgan has stated that the series will not continue past the early 2000s “Peter has stated eloquently that he is unable to write about a topic until he has had the opportunity to get some distance and perspective. I believe he has always held the view that ten years is the bare minimum necessary for him to view an event in its proper historical context.”
Although, Morgan has been known to alter his mind about the conclusion before, so who knows if this plan will come to fruition.
Mackie’s statement implies that “he won’t stray” from the stated plan. The terrain is rich, deep, and startling, but Peter does a wonderful job of getting behind the surface and understanding it.
