The Crown's last season is ready to hit the screens in two parts. Here's everything you need to know about the 6th and final season.

The Crown is all set to make its much-awaited comeback on Netflix. With a brand new cast and storyline all set to narrate tales loosely based on the royal family, the show has seen some big names star in it.

From Helena Bonham Carter to Gillian Anderson, some stars will not be returning to the show. With the controversial release of Harry & Meghan, fans got to see the current life of the royals. But, they are surely excited to see life from Diana’s and young Prince William’s points of view. The show which centers around the line of succession of the throne among the royals is almost back for its last and final season. Here is what we know about the highly anticipated season 6 of The Crown.

The Crown season 6

Season 5 ended on a cliffhanger, with Princess Diana in France and Prince Charles’s secret rendezvous with Tony Blair. Now, the creator of The Crown, Peter Morgan, is back yet again, with another action-packed season, after first announcing that the series will end with 5 seasons. He said the following to Hollywood Reporter about the decision that led to one extra season.

"As we started to discuss the storylines for series five, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,"

The two parts

The last season is going to be released in two parts. Part one which is releasing on November 16th will explore the dynamics between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed. And as per Town and Country Magazine, part two will delve deep into Prince William, Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee, and Charles and Camilla. But it is essential to note that the series will not be making it to the present day, but will still be in the past. That is the early 2000s.

The series, which was being filmed in 2022, and 2023, took a small hiatus when the Queen passed away, as a mark of respect for the monarch. While there is a lot of talk and anticipation of what will be coming this season, one thing is for sure, part one focuses on Diana’s death. The death scene is said to be shot with what is described as ‘enormous sensitivity’. It will not portray the exact moment of the crash on screen, as per Indiwire’s conversation with a source.

Part two will focus on Prince William’s life as a college student. Rumour has it that the series will also feature the marriage between Charles and Camilla. It is also speculated that it will look into the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, and the horrifying few weeks after that, during which the Queen lost both Princess Margaret and her mother.

The cast

The Crown has seen a talented set of people playing its lead characters till now. And it looks like it will continue to do so. Imelda Staunton, who played the Queen in season 5, will continue to season 6 as well. Lesley Manville will also continue her role as Princess Margaret. As Diana enters her last phase of life, season 5 actor Elizabeth Debicki will continue to play her. Jonathan Pryce will resume his role as Prince Philip, while Dominic West will continue to play Prince Charles.

Something new to expect this season is the meeting between Kate Middleton and Prince William. Ed McVey and Meg Bellamy will portray the royal couple who met in Scotland in 2001 in part two of the series. Part 1 will see Rufus Kampa playing Prince William.
