The Crown season 5 release date is finally here. The show has been on hiatus for a while, but it will be returning to Netflix this month. The trailer was released recently and fans are excited about the new season, so much so that they have already binge-watched the previous 4 seasons in anticipation of The Crown Season 5 Release Date! Keep reading to find out all the details related to The Crown Season 5 Release Date.
What is the release date of The Crown season 5?
Netflix hasn’t announced when the fifth season of The Crown will be on. But they did say that it has started filming this summer. And we guessed what month, and we were right!
Filming on previous seasons of the show lasted around seven months, and then post-production took at least eight months. All four completed seasons of The Crown premiered in either November or December.
The Crown Season 5 came out in November 2022. Imelda Staunton suggested this in the TV show TUDUM.
What is the plot of The Crown season 5?
I think the Crown season 5 will take place in the 1990s. It starts where season 4 leaves off, with their marriage on the rocks.
The couple separated in 1992. That year was called the “annushorribilis” (horrible year). That year also saw the separation of Prince Andrew and Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, as well as the official divorce of Princess Anne from Mark Phillips.
Charles and Diana were already in the news for other things, but their split became even bigger when Andrew Morton wrote a book about it. Diana herself was interviewed and her voice can be heard in the book.
That year, something happened that was terrible. One day, Windsor Castle caught on fire and it burned for a long time.
John Major became Prime Minister after Margaret Thatcher. The UK faced recessions and a currency crisis. They also joined forces with the US to liberate Kuwait in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. In the 1990s, there was a peace process in Northern Ireland. This began with a ceasefire and then the Good Friday Agreement.
Major was Prime Minister until 1997 when Tony Blair took over. That would take The Crown up to Princess Diana’s death in a car crash in Paris. This would give room for season 6 to cover the aftermath of her death, the royal family’s much-criticized initial response, and how they moved forward from Di’s death.
Morgan says that the show won’t cover recent events. She doesn’t want to make up things about Prince William and Kate Middleton or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
We think that The Crown may end in 2002. That was the year when Queen Mother’s and Princess Margaret died, and it was also the year of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Who will be starring in it
The Crown is on TV. It has new people who act. Imelda Staunton will be Queen Elizabeth II this season. She was in Harry Potter and the Downton Abbey movie.
Actors sometimes play different roles. Sometimes they play someone we know, like the Queen. Claire Foy played a character that people could say “she doesn’t do that,” “she’s not like that,” and it was history. Now I play a character people think is the same.
Netflix released a photo of the queen on July 30. In the picture, she looks sad. We did not get to see Diana in one season of the show because Emma Corrin left. But Netflix has a good idea because they cast Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana who is also really beautiful!
Prince Charles is who Josh O’Connor will be played by. He’s with Dominic West who has been on TV shows like The Wire and The Affair. He looks sad in this photo.
What can we expect?
The actor who played Prince Philip, Tobias Menzies, died. Now the new actor is Jonathan Pryce.
Helena Bonham Carter played Princess Margaret in the movie. But now she is gone. We will miss her. Now Lesley Manville will be playing the part of Princess Margaret’s sister.
Princess Anne is feisty. She will be played by Claudia Harrison and she will take over for Erin Doherty. The next Camilla Parker Bowles will be played by Olivia Williams and she said in an interview that she would be the next Camilla Parker Bowles.
There have not been any actors chosen yet to play Queen Elizabeth and Prince Edward. No one has been chosen to play them yet. The most recent role to be cast is Prime Minister John Major, who was in power from 1990-1997. He will be played by Jonny Lee Miller, who was on the show Elementary before this.
In Season 5, we might meet Prime Minister Tony Blair. Key figures who may appear include the young Prince William and Prince Harry, Timothy Laurence (Princess Ann’s second husband), and Sophie Rhys-Jones (Prince Edward’s eventual wife).
