The Crown Season 6 Plot: What to expect?
The final season of The Crown will trace the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding in 1947 through the early 21st century. That’s not it. The much-awaited sixth season is expected to focus between 1997 and 2005 and depict the premiership of Tony Blair, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and the early relationship of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Back in January 2020, creator Peter Morgan announced that the series would instead conclude with the fifth season. But later, Morgan reversed his decision and announced that the series would end with a sixth season as originally planned, saying:
“As we started to discuss the storylines for Season 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. To be clear, Season 6 will not bring us any closer to the present day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
Peter Morgan also stated: “In Season 6, the arrival of William and Kate and Harry just blows the doors off. You want to see them. It happened in the read-through. You could just see everyone looking up and looking at each other across the room. And every time William spoke, it was like, ‘Oh my God, this is just riveting.'”
To which Edith Bowman replied, “Well, we’ve got all that and more to look forward to in Season 6. So, for now, it’s goodbye, but don’t worry, we will be back next year for the final ever season of The Crown. I can’t wait.”
It’s fair to say that with its portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and its exploration of the lives and loves of her family members, we are prepared for Season 6 to showcase the new twists and turns that await us in this historical drama television series.

The Crown Season 6 Official Trailer
The network has not released any new teasers or trailers for the upcoming season, as the release date is still pretty much too far away to start marketing such promos this early on. In the meantime, check out the official trailer of The Crown Season 5 to recall the events, as it has an approval rating of 71% approval from 101 reviews, with an average rating of 6.75/10 on Rotten Tomatoes.
Its critical consensus reads: “In its fifth season, it’s hard to shake the feeling that this series has lost some of its lusters – but addictive drama and a sterling cast remain The Crown‘s jewels.” On Metacritic, the season holds a score of 65 out of 100 based on 37 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
The fifth season which is inspired by real events, this fictional dramatization, tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign. It’s a new decade, and the royal family is facing what may be their biggest challenge yet: proving their continued relevance in ’90s Britain. As Diana and Charles wage a media war, cracks begin to splinter the royal foundation.
