“The Crown” on Netflix to end with Season 5, before reaching modern day

For anyone keeping up with Netflix’s The Crown, Season 5 will be the last. It comes as no surprise considering the show’s timeline is gradually getting closer to modern day.

If show creator Peter Morgan continued beyond Season 5, it would need to touch on stories still relevant now. That would be problematic, considering the show’s inaccuracies surrounding Prince Philip and other royals. Plus, it’d be tough for Netflix not to cast Duchess Meghan as herself, particularly in light of recent news.

Swapping Queens

Oscar-winner Olivia Colman will be replaced by Imelda Staunton in Season 5 of the show. Staunton, who co-starred in A Confession alongside Martin Freeman and Siobhan Finneran, is best known as Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter movies.

Staunton will follow Colman and Claire Foy, each of whom took the role of Queen Elizabeth II at different time periods in her life. So far, both actresses who have played the role have won awards for their performances, so Staunton will have a lot to live up to.

Claire Foy The Crown awards

  • BAFTA TV Awards: Best Actress nominations in 2017 and 2018.
  • Golden Globes: Best Actress winner in 2017, and a nomination in 2018.
  • Primetime Emmy Awards: Best Actress nomination in 2017, and winner of the same award in 2018.
  • Screen Actors Guild: Outstanding Performance award winner in 2017 and 2018.

Olivia Colman The Crown awards

  • Golden Globes: Best Actress winner in 2020.
  • Screen Actors Guild: Outstanding Performance nomination in 2020.

The Crown will likely be Imelda Staunton’s biggest role. If trends continue, culminate in her first big award — unless something happens to Netflix’s The Crown and its popularity between now and Season 5.
