The Crown Season 5: Elda Staunton As Queen Elizabeth II First Look Dropped

The Crown Season 5 Elda Staunton

New episodes of The Crown haven’t been shown on Netflix in over a year. Netflix revealed Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II as fans anxiously anticipate the inevitable fifth season.

Stanton will replace Olivia Colman in the lead role. Claire Foy brought the long-reigning queen to life in the first two seasons before Colman wore the crown in seasons three and four.

Along with the first peek, Netflix stated on Twitter, “An early sight of our new Queen Elizabeth II, Imelda Staunton.” Staunton talked about portraying Queen Elizabeth and following in the footsteps of Foy and Coleman after her casting last year. “I suppose my added difficulty as if I needed it,” she remarked on BBC’s Woman’s Hour, “is that I’m now portraying the Queen that we’re a bit more familiar with.” “It was practically history with Claire Foy, and now I’m portraying someone who people would say,’ she doesn’t do that,” she’s not like that,’ and that’s my particular bête noire.”

The Crown was supposed to conclude after the fifth season, but creator Peter Morgan decided to make it a six-season series. “As we discussed the plots for Series 5, it became obvious that we needed to do six seasons to do justice to the richness and complexity of the tale,” Morgan stated. “To be clear, Series 6 will not get us any closer to the present — it will merely allow us to go deeper into the same time.”

It was originally speculated that production for The Crown’s fifth season will begin this month, and it appears that those speculations were correct. We’ll simply have to wait and see when the new season of Netflix is available to watch.
