The Crown Season 5 debuts November 9, 2022, exclusive to Netflix. With such controversy surrounding the series, some fans were worried that this new batch of episodes might not ever make it to broadcast. Fortunately, Netflix is pushing ahead with release, but just how many seasons of The Crown will there be on the streaming platform in total?
How many seasons of The Crown are left on Netflix?
There are going to be six seasons of The Crown in total, which means there are just two seasons of the Netflix original series to go. Season 5 picks up in the early 1990s, while Season 6 is set to showcase the journey of the monarchy into the early 2000s. We will watch as the breakdown of the marriage between Prince Charles and Princess Diana becomes an official separation, before the two go to war via the media, and eventually get divorced, ahead of Diana’s untimely death just a year later. It is thought that Diana’s final days will play out in Season 6, rather than Season 5.
