So, we can assure the readers that the time has now come to get ready to explore the complexities of the British monarchy with The Crown Season 6. Here is everything we know so far about the potential release date on Netflix.
The Crown Season 6 Release Date: Has it been delayed?
After receiving a great reception from critics and die-hard fans around the world, the fifth season debuted in the #1 spot across various regions. The fifth season reported 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 luster – 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.”
It became one of the streamer’s most-viewed series, which made it easy for Netflix, without any doubt, to renew the popular historical drama series created by Peter Morgan for a sixth and final season! Ever since the renewal was announced, the fans have had one question lingering all over their minds: “When will the sixth and final season premiere on Netflix?” If you are thinking the same, then we can assure you that, as of writing this, no official release date has been confirmed! We know that this update is a bit disheartening, but on the bright side, we have to inform our beloved readers that Netflix has confirmed that the release window is set for sometime in 2023!
Hence, the series has not been delayed until next year! As the production for the final season was not affected by the ongoing dual strikes, which include the 2023 WGA strike and the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike. If you recall, the filming for the season began in early September 2022 but was paused following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022. Later, it resumed the following week but paused again on the day of Elizabeth’s funeral on September 19, 2022. Eventually, concluding on April 21, 2023, this timeline allowed the production to be completed way before the dual strikes gained momentum, which is great for the fans as the series will be released on schedule.
The series is also expected to premiere at the same time slot as every original series, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET). In order to receive updates on when The Crown Season 6 premieres on Netflix, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Likewise, we would like to emphasize that the fans should keep an eye on this topic as some new updates will be released in the following weeks.

The Crown Season 6 Plot: What to expect from the final season?
The final season will trace the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding in 1947 through the early 21st century. That’s not it! There is so much more for the fandom to offer, as the much-awaited sixth and final season is expected to focus between 1997 and 2005 and depict the premiership of Tony Blair. Furthermore, we know that the fans are curious about the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, whether it will be shown or not, and we can assure the viewers that the final season will definitely delve into this event. The season will also go into the early relationship between Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Moreover, 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.”
In addition to this, 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.”
In an interview with Deadline, Dominic West shared that season six will be “as tumultuous as it gets,” as it will focus on the tragedy. A Netflix source confirmed to IndieWire that “the exact moment of the crash impact will not be shown.” Furthermore, during the Edinburgh TV Festival, the show’s creators emphasized how much care they took in portraying Diana’s death, adding that moments were recorded with “enormous sensitivity.”
“The show might be big and noisy, but we’re not. We’re thoughtful people and we’re sensitive people. There were very careful, long conversations about how we were going to do it,” Suzanne Mackie said, per Deadline. “The audience will judge it in the end, but I think it’s been delicately, thoughtfully recreated. Elizabeth Debicki is an extraordinary actress and she was so thoughtful and considerate. She loved Diana. There’s a huge amount of respect from us all, I hope that’s evident.”
With each passing season, this show has consistently delivered enthralling storylines that keep us on the edge of our seats. From political intrigue to personal struggles, we have witnessed the royal family navigate through countless challenges and triumphs. Now, as we embark on this next chapter, we can only imagine the new twists and turns that await us in this historical drama television series! It’s fair to say that its portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and its exploration of the lives and loves of her family members will definitely live up to the name of the show!
The Crown Season 6 Cast: Who will reprise their roles, and who are the new cast members?
The main and recurring cast of the sixth and final season will feature some old and new members, which are as follows: Claire Foy, who depicted the young Queen Elizabeth II in the show’s initial two seasons, chronicling her early years on the throne, and Olivia Colman, who succeeded Foy by portraying the monarch in seasons three and four, capturing her middle years, along with Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II who is currently playing the Queen’s later years will return for the final season, which will be exciting for the fans to see all three Queen actors together share the screen.

The Crown Season 6 Official Trailer: Has it been released?
Unfortunately, the network has not released any new teasers or trailers for the upcoming season or hinted at it being released anytime soon, 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 fifth season, which is inspired by real events as it is a fictional dramatization that 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.
