About the Show “The Crown”
The Crown is a TV series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The show stars Claire Foy as Elizabeth and Matt Smith as Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. It is written by Peter Morgan and produced by Left Bank Pictures for Netflix. Season five will see Olivia Colman take over from Foy in portraying Elizabeth after her portrayal of Elizabeth’s mother Diana Spencer on season two was met with critical acclaim.
The Crown Season 5 Filming and Production
Locations for Elizabeth in The Crown Season five will be among the most evocative and dramatic yet, including Northern Ireland during Troubles-era Belfast (but without violence), London’s 1976 heat wave with its summer of love hangover, Scotland at a time of great change in society and culture. Elizabeth also spends significant periods away from Britain – her first overseas trip to North America as monarch; visiting Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji on an Empire tour that takes place at the same time she is dealing with troubles closer to home; then meeting up with President Nixon while sailing across the Atlantic just before Watergate scandal breaks.
The Crown Season 5 Release Date Predictions
Unfortunately, there is no release date for season five just yet. The Crown does take a long time to film (about six months per series), and it’s likely the show will follow its usual pattern; of airing on Netflix in November or December. However, this year Elizabeth has been filming extensively; with her movie role as Princess Diana, so it could be delayed until 2022?
