Netflix Royal Family Drama ‘The Crown’ Coming to an End After 5 Seasons

We have some bad news for you The Crown fans.

Netflix announced that historical drama will end its reign after the upcoming fifth season. 

Peter Morgan, the show creator, announced his decision to end the season before the anticipated six seasons.

“At the outset I had imagined The Crown running for six season. But now that we have begun work on the stories for season five it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,” he explained to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision,” he added. 

The news comes shortly after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “Megxit,” and other royal scandals involving Prince Andrew’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein, which more than 70 million fans (per the BBC) were hoping would be addressed in future seasons.

Sadly, the last installment will span the year of 2003.

There’s also a casting change on the way as Imelda Staunton takes the helm as Queen Elizabeth, a role previously held by Olivia Colman.

Fans might not be pleased, but the royal family likely is as they’ve never supported the series, which chronicles their lives and scandals.

Prince Harry, who was rumored to have said that he would put an end to the series before it touched on his life and his family with Meghan and Baby Archie, is probably the most relieved.

The historical drama also stars Marion Bailey, Helena Bonham Carter, and Tobias Menzies.

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Launching in National Syndication Following Emmys Sweep

Published

Schitt's Creek to Be Available for National Broadcast Syndication

The small town of Schitt’s Creek is going nationwide! 

After sweeping the Emmys on Sunday, September 20, the half-hour sitcom is coming to a TV near you. 

You’ll be able to watch the fan-favorite comedy anywhere as it’s being launched into national syndication across U.S broadcast markets starting on September 28, per the press release from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, who owns the domestic broadcast rights. 

Prior to Sunday’s show, the Pop TV original had zero Emmy’s, but now, it’s being referred to as a nine-time Emmy Award-winning comedy. Talk about bragging rights. 

During the 2020 virtual show, it won all seven of the major comedy categories and became the first to win all four comedy-acting categories in one year. 

QUIZ: Which ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Character Are You?

The cast includes Emmy Award winners Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. Rounding out the cast are Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill, Rizwan Manji, and Tim Rozon.

Schitt’s Creek centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy); his former soap-star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara); and their two adult children – the self-described black sheep of the family David (Daniel Levy) and career socialite Alexis (Annie Murphy). When the family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Johnny once bought as a joke. Forced to live out of a motel, with their pampered lives a memory, they struggle to find jobs and relationships and, most importantly, figure out what it means to be a family in the loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home. 

Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, commented, “What begins as a fish-out-of-water story quickly develops into a nuanced love letter to family, delivered with warmth, humanity and perfect comedic timing. With a gifted cast and whip-smart writing, it’s easy to see why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ appeals to Emmy voters, critics and viewers, and has built a loyal and passionate fan base. We are excited to bring the Emmy Award-winning series to broadcast television stations and introduce the iconic Rose family to a new audience.”

Previously, Schitt’s Creek was available for streaming on Netflix.

The sixth and final season will be available on the platform starting Wednesday, October 7.
