Netflix’s streaming service has announced that the fifth season of the popular Crown series, featuring Queen Elizabeth II’s family, will be the last. It was also confirmed that the role of the monarch will be played by actress Imelda Staunton. It is reported by Deadline.
“From the very beginning I liked to watch“ The Crown. ”As an actor, it was nice to see Claire Foy and Olivia Coleman bring something special and unique to this project.
I am sincerely flattered that I join such an exceptional creative team and bring the“ Crown ” “to the end,” the actress said in a statement.
Unlike her colleagues Claire Foy and Olivia Coleman, she has to get used to the image of the queen in only one season.
It is worth noting that the creator of the show, Peter Morgan, originally planned to tell the story of Elizabeth II in six seasons. But now he admits that the fifth season is “the best moment to put an end to.” “I am grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision,” he said.
The true reason, most likely, lies in the fact that the next season of the series failed to enter the top ten most popular in the UK in 2019.
