Unfortunately, season 6 of ‘The Crown’ will not bring the royal family closer to the present day

In 2020, showrunner Peter Morgan shared his original plan to end the series after season five. However, moving the story of the House of Windsor forward required one more season said the showrunner in a press statement per The Wrap. Season 5 of The Crown features the breakdown of the marriage of Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, through the years 1991-1997.

Filming for season 6 of The Crown is reportedly causing “anxiety” among the cast and crew as they prepare to shoot scenes relating to Princess Diana‘s death. The final installment of the Netflix series will continue to tackle historical events surrounding the British royal family. As in past seasons, The Crown‘s goal is to base storylines on fact, and represent emotions rather than intimate details between royal family members.

“To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to the present day. It will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail,” he continued.
