Netflix’s The Crown season three will be the most startling yet, and there’s more than enough material to make it so. The royal family had a tough decade in the 1990s, highlighted by the Queen’s annus horribilis in 1992 when three of her children’s marriages fell apart, Windsor Castle was heavily damaged by fire, and the toe-sucking scandal involving the Duchess of York brought tabloid outrage to the Firm.
And now as the acclaimed drama is getting closer to the present day, the royals are back, older, and with a new cast. The Crown promises to deliver some of the most iconic (and terrifying) events in recent royal history, so get ready for a strong dose of royal politics and controversy. These are the currently known facts about the next season.
When is The Crown season 5 coming out?
Netflix revealed The Crown’s November 2022 premiere date with a video message from Imelda Staunton on set, who looked every bit the queen she plays. No specific day in November has been announced yet, but it will be released in the winter, as has been the case for the previous seasons. Cozy.

Who’s in The Crown season 5?
A new cast takes over every two seasons to reflect the evolution of the show over time. Thus, the roles previously played by Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor, and Emma Corrin have concluded, and the next set of actors will now take them on. In the role of Queen Elizabeth, Imelda Staunton is joined by Jonathan Pryce, who plays the High Sparrow.
Dominic West plays an elder Prince Charles, while Lesley Manville, who stole a moment in Phantom Thread, plays Princess Margaret. In particular, everyone is watching Elizabeth Debicki, who was last seen in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet as Kat “including my son” Barton. She’ll be taking over for Emma Corrin as Diana, Princess of Wales as the drama nears its sad climax.
In her first statement regarding the part, the actress said, “Princess Diana’s spirit, her words, and her actions live in the hearts of so many.” As an avid viewer of the show from the very first episode, I can say with confidence that “it is my true privilege and honor to be joining this wonderful series.”

Debicki’s star has been on the rise ever since her captivating performances in films like The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Steve McQueen’s heist thriller Widows. Astounding audiences and earning an Emmy nomination, Corrin’s portrayal of Diana’s initial years at the Firm raised the question of whether or not Debicki could go on to win the award.
What will happen in The Crown Season 5?
As the 20th century draws to a close, The Crown will undoubtedly focus on some of the most tumultuous years of Queen Elizabeth‘s reign. A number of significant relationships, including Prince Charles’s marriage to Princess Diana, broke down during the time period this season will focus on.
Due to the increasing prominence of her life in the tabloids, viewers may expect Diana to play a significant role in season five, just as she did in season four. Diana’s controversial Panorama interview and her associations with surgeon Hasnat Khan and film producer Dodi Al-Fayed are likely to be revealed after Charles and Diana’s divorce.

The sighting of Debicki in the vengeance dress on set is the icing on the cake. Surprisingly, Jemima Khan, a close friend of Diana’s and a consultant on the series, severed relations with the streaming service when she realized the princess’ narrative would “not necessarily be conveyed as respectfully or compassionately as I had anticipated.”

As the third and final actor to play Queen Elizabeth II on The Crown, Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter series) was featured in a teaser film released by Netflix in September 2021. She remarked of her two predecessors, Claire Foy and Olivia Colman,
“I’m happy to be inheriting the part of Queen Elizabeth from two fantastic actresses,” I promise to work hard to live up to the lofty benchmark they’ve established. Here’s hoping I come across as cool under pressure. And in the meantime, my stomach is twisting and turning.
