It’s been more than a year since Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, and now Netflix is gearing up for the final season of her biopic-series The Crown. The official announcement has announced a premiere for next month, but it’s also revealed that they will also be splitting the series in two.
Check this out:
The first part of the final season of The Crown is set to come out on November 16 and the second part is set to premiere on December 14. The official description reads:
The sixth and final season of The Crown is coming. Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatisation tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign.
According to THR, the final season of the show is said to be covering events from 1997–2005; Part I will include the relationship of Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) and Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) as well as the car crash that killed them both. Part II will cover the wedding of Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Camilla Parker Bowles (Olivia Williams).
While the series did start with Claire Foy and Olivia Colman playing the role of Elizabeth, The Crown will be finishing their run with Imelda Staunton playing the part of the British monarch. EP Suzanne Mackie says about Staunton:
“I am really, really proud of this final season. I think it’s some of our best work… Imelda is extraordinary as the queen, she really is. And I don’t want to spoil the very end, but it’s really beautiful and, I think, quite profound, and it feels like a culmination of a very long journey.”
Watch out for Part 1 of the final season of The Crown when it comes to Netflix on Nov. 16. The second part is set to premiere on Dec. 14.
