Netflix drama 'The Crown' to end reign with Season 5, Imelda Staunton


While Queen Elizabeth II is still enjoying her long-running reign, Netflix’s “The Crown” is relinquishing its throne.

The streaming service confirmed the series centered on the British royals will end with its fifth season, with Imelda Staunton’s portrayal of the matriarch. Fans hoping the show would tackle the modern era of the royals, including, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s decision to step back from the royal family, will be disappointed.

“Imelda is an astonishing talent and will be a fantastic successor to Claire Foy and Olivia Colman,” series creator, writer and executive producer Peter Morgan said in a statement. 

Morgan shared that initially he saw the show completing an additional season, but had a change of heart.

“At the outset I had imagined ‘The Crown’ running for six seasons, but now that we have begun work on the stories for Season 5 it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,” he said.  “I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision.”
