The Crown

Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ Will Continue Its Reign Until Season 6

Published

The Crown Will Return for Season 6 on Netflix

Queen Elizabeth II’s reign is far from over. 

Netflix’s critically acclaimed historical drama The Crown won’t be ending with season 5 after all. 

The streaming giant’s UK social media platform announced the series is being extended by one more season so the sixth season will now serve as the final season. 

“News from the palace: we can confirm there will be a sixth (and final) season of @TheCrownNetflix, in addition to the previously announced five,” the post read.

We can all thank the series creator and executive producer Peter Morgan or changing his mind. 

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” Morgan said per the streamer. 

For those who were anticipating that the season might near present-day or even give us a straight-from-the-palace look at the Megxit drama, don’t get your hopes up. While season 5 will bring us into the 21st center, the EP said the additional season will allow the team to creatively explore the current period in greater detail. 

This mean, Olivia Colman will stay on as the Queen for one more season before giving the crown over to Imelda Staunton (Professor Umbridge for you Harry Potter fans) for two seasons. 

Colman took over from Claire Foy, who portrayed the younger version of the monarch. 

Last week, it was announced that Lesley Manville will play Princess Margaret.

Since season 4 was able to complete production prior to the COVID-19 pandemic halting everything, there’s a huge chance it will air sometime later this year. 

The fourth season begins the reign of Princess Diana and will welcome newcomer Emma Corrin in the role of Prince Charles’ wife.

Joseph Morgan Reveals If He’d Ever Reprise His Character Klaus Mikealson for ‘Legacies’

Published

on


If you’ve been waiting for the day where Klaus Mikealson strolls back into Mystic Falls to pay his daughter, Hope Mikealson, and the Salvatore School — which he helped fund — a visit, well, don’t get your hopes up. 

The first two seasons of Legacies have given us some grade-A guest stars from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals including Aunt Freya (Riley Voekel), Kai Parker (Chris Wood), and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).  We even briefly saw Lizzie and Josie Saltzman’s birth mother Josette (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe). 

But as for baddie Klaus Mikealson, the man who brought him to life, Joseph Morgan, doesn’t think he’ll ever reprise his role again.

And turns out, he has a really good reason!

TV Guide caught up with the actor to talk about his Peacock show, Brave New World, and when asked about guest starring on The CW teen drama, he bluntly and rapidly shut down the possibility.

“No never, never. You’re never going to see it.” Morgan said. “You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2. So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

As much as we’d like to see Klaus in the flesh again, you have to admit that’s a satisfactory answer. It shows that Morgan cares enough about the character not to reprise him without a purpose or taint his legacy. 

Klaus Mikealson’s story came to a fitting end in the series finale of The Originals when he redeemed himself for the greater good and sacrificed himself alongside his brother Elijah to save his daughter. Since then, Hope has carried on his legacy; his memory lives on as she mentions him pretty often and channels what he taught her to protect her friends and fight off a plethora of demons and monsters. 

Morgan added that he felt like series creator Julie Plec understood where he was coming from. 

“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Morgan continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.” 

Morgan may get a pass, but Candace Accola surely doesn’t.  We’d love to see her reprise her role of Caroline Forbes considering she’s raising two daughters with Alaric but has yet to pay them a visit or help out with the school! Don’t let us down, Caroline! 

The fact that she is still alive in the supernatural world and has such close ties to Mystic Falls but yet never comes to visit doesn’t paint her in a great light!

Former ‘Glee’ Actress Naya Rivera Presumed Dead, Search Considered ‘Recovery Effort’

Published

on

Naya Rivera Missing, Presumed Drowning

Update: 7/9 – 6:45 pm

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said that Naya Rivera is “presumed dead” as she’s been missing for over 24 hours. The search has shifted from a “rescue mission” to a “recovery mission.” 

7/9 – 8:54 am

The search for Naya Rivera continues today after authorities and news publications revealed she went missing on a lake in Southern California.

The former Glee actress was reported missing from Lake Piru in Ventura County. 

Rescue efforts were said to be resumed at “first light.”

CBS said she is “presumed drowned.”

CNN notes she rented a pontoon boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey, earlier that day. About three hours after they left the dock, another boater found the boat drifting with a child sleeping aboard. 

The child was unharmed and is being reunited with his family.

He told investigators that he went swimming with his mother, but she wasn’t able to get back to the boat. It is not clear how the child got back into the boat. 

Rivera played Santana Lopez on the FOX musical drama for the entire six season run starting in 2009. 

The day before the accident, Rivera posted a sweet photo with her son alongside the caption, “just the two of us.”

A post shared by Naya Rivera (@nayarivera) on

Earlier this week, Rivera posted a photo on Instagram writing: “no matter the year, circumstance, or strifes everyday you’re alive is a blessing. make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised.”

Friends and former cast members took to social media to pray for Rivera’s safe return. 

Demi Lovato, who played a love interested for Rivera’s Glee character, wrote, “Please pray for @nayarivera to be found safe and sound.”

Victoria Justice wrote, “Praying for Naya 🙏🙏🙏.”

Fellow Glee actress Vanessa Lengies wrote, “I love her. I love you. Holding you tight. 🙏”
