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.
