Ever since the premiere of the final episode, “Decommissioned,” of the fifth season, the viewers got to see that, after heightened public scrutiny, Charles forges a new alliance in Hong Kong, and Mohamed Al-Fayed offers his support to a newly divorced Diana. This has flared much excitement among viewers as to how the story will unfold for its final season, spurring questions such as “When will fans be able to watch the sixth season?”
Sadly, viewers who want to binge-watch the next season will have to wait a while, as the season will not be coming to Netflix anytime soon. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a brief summary of everything you can anticipate, including the release date, plotline, cast, and other details.
Here’s all we know about The Crown Season 6 so far.
The Crown Season 6: When will the new season premiere on Netflix?
Unfortunately, the new season will not return to the streaming platform this month, so fans will have to wait a little longer and be patient!
We would like to highlight that the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged. But if we have to predict the potential release date, it is expected to be released by Netflix in 2023, as the show is still in production. If we have to guess, the release window for the upcoming season has been suggested to be around late 2023, just like the last season.
Additionally, it is expected to air at the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET on the streaming platform. On the other hand, filming for the season began in early September 2022 but was paused following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022. Later, the filming resumed the following week but was paused on the day of Elizabeth’s funeral, September 19, 2022.
In October 2022, it was reported that the events just before and right after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in Paris would be filmed for season six. As stated above, a statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by Netflix. So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to go with the same schedule.
The Crown Season 6: What to expect in the final season?
The sixth season will close the series and will cover the Queen’s reign into the 21st century. In July 2020, Netflix announced that the series would receive a sixth season as originally intended. Morgan said that when the storylines were being discussed for season five, “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.” He added that the final two seasons would enable them “to cover the same period in greater detail.”
In the final episode of The Crown: The Official Podcast, host Edith Bowman teases what’s next for Season 6. Their conversation hinted, “Season 6 is being made and there is nothing beyond that for this show.” Also, Peter Morgan 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.”
The main cast members of the series are as follows Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Claire Foy as young Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales, Jonny Lee Miller as John Major, Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles, Claudia Harrison as Princess Anne, Natascha McElhone as Penelope Knatchbull, and Marcia Warren as Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
