The Crown will have more space and will stretch until the sixth season. The broadcast platform has repeatedly shown that it is not endowed with a tender heart with its children (the cancellation of Sabrina is an example) so the news can only do twice as much pleasure to the lovers of the television transposition of the biography of the English royals as to the creators of the series. Peter Morgan, the creator of the show, revealed that he plans to change the season five finale to be able to add another.
The narrative arc will continue to the present day therefore? Absolutely not. “The sixth series will allow us to simply cover the same narrative arc but with a greater degree of detail,” said Morgan. According to what we learn, therefore, Olivia Colman will take on the role of Her Majesty for one more season, leaving the crown a Imelda Staunton for the series finale.

But what can we expect from the latest series? In the mind of showrunners there is no intention of going to tell the contemporary. The plans in fact want the story to go up to the early 2000s, long before the arrival of Kate and Meghan in the royal family just to have the opportunity to enjoy the right historical distance that allows the facts to be focused with clarity .
At this point we just have to wait for the course of events, giving us the relief of being able to stay for a long time in the company of the royals in small-screen format.
