THE CROWN Final Season | Date Announcement, Teaser & Key Art Debut

Posted on October 09, 2023



Oooooh, y’all better strap yourselves in! It’s back!



Of course it will be interesting to see how The Crown will pull off its final season over a year after the Queen’s death, but it looks like the show is committed to riding out its major themes of duty and the suppression of the self for the good of the country. Since last season tended to soften Charles’ image just a little bit in the wake of quite a bit of complaining coming from the general direction of Buckingham Palace, we suspect they’re going to continue to make the now-king and his good lady wife Queen Camilla look a lot better than they appeared at the time of the events being portrayed. This will also be the season when the William & Kate story gets underway and we suspect they’ll manage to fit in some sort of allusion to Harry’s eventual break from the family. If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how many of Charles’ friends come forward to denounce the season before it even airs. We will, of course, be right there with you, painstakingly recapping each episode, as we’ve done since the very beginning.

The 6th season of THE CROWN will close out the genre-defining prestige royal saga that has been on screens since 2016. The Crown’s final season will premiere in two parts: Part 1 on November 16th & Part 2 on December 14th.

Part 1 will see Elizabeth Debicki reprise her role as Princess Diana alongside Dominic West as Prince Charles. Imelda Staunton continues her reign as Queen Elizabeth II alongside Jonathan Pryce (Prince Philip) and Lesley Manville (Princess Margaret). Also returning are Salim Daw (Mohamed Al Fayed) and Khalid Abdalla (Dodi Fayed). Making their debuts are Rufus Kampa (Prince William) and Fflyn Edwards (Prince Harry).

The 6th and final season covers events from 1997 through 2005. The first four episodes (Part 1) depict a relationship blossoming between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed before a fateful car journey has devastating consequences.

The final chapter (Part 2) is told across six episodes. Prince William tries to integrate back into life at Eton in the wake of his mother’s death as the monarchy has to ride the wave of public opinion. As she reaches her Golden Jubilee, the Queen reflects on the future of the monarchy with the marriage of Charles and Camilla and the beginnings of a new Royal fairytale in William and Kate.

For Part 2, taking on the roles of Prince William and Prince Harry will be Ed McVey and Luther Ford. Joining them will be Meg Bellamy as Kate Middleton. These will be debut roles for all three actors.
