The Crown, Netflix’s hit series that focuses on the British royal family was earlier confirmed for the fifth season to be its last season. However, looks like the creator, Peter Morgan had a change of heart and now, there’s going to be the sixth one. ” The sixth season would do justice to the richness and the complexity of the story,” said Peter Morgan.
A while ago, Netflix had announced that the fifth season of The Crown would be the last of it. However, while discussing the storyline for the fifth season, Peter Morgan realized that a sixth season was necessary to justify the Princess and the complexity of the story.
Hence, Netflix renewed the show for another season and definitely the last one this time, on Thursday.

In January, Morgan had talked about bringing the show to an end now. However, at the outset of the show, Morgan had decided to run the show for six seasons. He then made a slight change to go for just five seasons. However, then he again realized that six seasons were actually necessary.
Well, there’s no word on filming yet so we do not know anything about it. Of course, there will be a long wait before we get to watch the sixth season as we haven’t even got the fourth season. Although it is good to know Netflix has already planned for a couple of seasons ahead. It assures us that there will be no delay in production as soon as it starts. We can hope to watch the sixth season by the end of 2022 or perhaps 2023, depending on when the production kicks off. However, we cannot be sure about that yet. We will let you know as soon as Netflix says anything about it.
