The Crown Season 5 arrives, but the world has changed. This is the first season of Netflix’s drama depicting the reign of Queen Elizabeth II to be made available to subscribers after her death on September 8 at the age of 96.
New episodes have reached the 1990s and feature new actors playing the royal family, but the series is still 30 years away from the Queen’s death in the timeline. Whether you’ve been following the drama for all four seasons or are just now getting curious, we have compiled everything you need to know for Season 5.
The Crown Season 5: Cast
Here you will read about the cast members of The Crown season 5:
Imelda Stauton as Elizabeth II
Even if her court is filled with people who are more interesting than she is, the sovereign’s dependability is an important strength. Although the queen’s rule remains unchanged in Season 5, the world around her is evolving rapidly and not everyone, even members of her own family, is certain that she can stay up.
As a mother, she is worried about the effects that so much divorce may have on the monarchy and she is troubled that not just one but three of her children’s marriages have ended in failure. Some may begin the season wondering if a monarchy is necessary. Imelda Staunton questioned whether or not “the queen” was necessary. And she has to weather that particular storm.
Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip
The Duke of Edinburgh shows no signs of slowing down, even though he is now in his twilight years. As he grows older and no longer plays polo, his interest in the past and the sciences flourish and he finds a newfound love for carriage riding.
Penny Knatchbull, the spouse of his godson, is a member of his “gang” of pals with whom he enjoys these activities. Peter puts himself in Philip’s shoes, imagining him as a man trapped in a difficult circumstance and wonders aloud, “What must he be thinking?” Saying, “What would I be thinking if I were in that kind of marriage?'” Jonathan Pryce posed the question.
Jonny Lee Miller As John Major
A new season means a new prime minister. Now that Margaret Thatcher’s term as leader of the Conservative Party has ended, John Major will take the helm in Season 5. At the start of Season 5, the level-headed politician has been in power for a while and has established a cordial relationship with the monarch.
Lesley Manville As Princess Margaret
In her 60s, the queen’s younger sister has matured from her rebellious adolescence (and from her failed marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones). They seem closer than ever, but then Margaret is reminded of the love she had long ago and she begins to wonder about the life she may have had but was royally denied.
Margaret’s storyline this season is an example of the “small quiet dramas going on underground,” as Lesley Manville put it. “There are all the great, epic storylines going on — the things everyone knows about because they’re history,” she continued.

The Crown, a popular Netflix original series, is finally coming back for season 5.

Where to watch The Crown Season 5?
Season 5 of The Crown will debut on Netflix this coming Wednesday, November 9.
The Crown Season 5 Focus on Charles and Diana’s Separation
Netflix can only raise our already sky-high anticipation for the new season of The Crown, which premieres in just five days. After teasing a significant crisis for the Royal family in the trailer, the streaming service dropped two films featuring Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki, who are likely to be the season’s most valuable players.
The highly publicized split between Princess Diana and Prince Charles will be shown in Season 5 of The Crown, which is expected to be one of the most delicate times in the history of the British monarchy (West).
There are always two sides to any tale and viewers will witness how both sides act in future episodes, but for now, it seems safe to assume that Diana had it the worse. The real-life monarch became the focus of intense media attention, with her every step followed closely by the paparazzi and the press. This is emphasized by Debicki in “becoming Diana”:
“Diana [was] the most photographed person in the world at the time. […] Obviously, as an actor, you open the portal and there’s this huge tsunami of information that comes at you. […] The way that Peter [Morgan, series creator] has written Diana’s journey this season… it’s the story of the disintegration and the inevitable breakdown of their marriage into divorce. One of the themes that we explore a lot is the isolation she experiences as a result of the marriage breaking down and how she becomes removed from the rest of the family.”
How Many Episodes will be in The Crown Season 5?
Season 5 of The Crown will likely consist of 10 episodes.
Since each of the first four seasons consists of 10 episodes for a total of 40 episodes, it’s likely that the following season will follow the same format, especially since a sixth season is in the works.
