On November 16, Netflix will release the sixth and final season of The Crown, marking the end of a revolutionary era on OTT. The season finale will stream in two parts: the first four episodes on November 16 and the second half on December 14. Queen Elizabeth II (played by Claire Foy, Olivia Colman, and Imelda Staunton over the course of six seasons) is shown striding across time, beginning with her ascension to the throne and ending with the series' last episode.

Queen Elizabeth II's journey across time

Queen Elizabeth II (Staunton) will look back on her reign and forward to the day when her heirs seize the throne in the final six episodes. Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Camilla (Olivia Williams) are getting married, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are beginning to date at the university. Part 1 also features Rufus Kampa and Fflyn Edwards as William and Harry as children, while Part 2 features Ford as an adolescent Harry.


Among the returning cast for the last season are Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Claudia Harrison as Princess Anne, Pryce as Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Bertie Carvel as Tony Blair, Salim Daw as Mohamed al-Fayed, and Khalid Abdalla as Dodi Fayed.

Evolution over six seasons

On November 14, 2016, The Crown made its debut. Set in the 1940s and '50s, the first season covers the new marriage between Princess Elizabeth (Foy) and Lt. Philip Mountbatten (Matt Smith), Elizabeth's coronation after the premature death of her father, and her subsequent adjustment to her role as queen. Foy and Smith played Elizabeth and Philip for the first two seasons, and then Colman and Tobias Menzies, respectively. Season 5 marked the debut of Imelda Staunton and Jonathan Pryce as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, respectively; Season 6 will mark the series' final episode.

Peter Morgan, creator of The Crown on Netflix, has managed to humanise these famous personalities who have long been the focus of interest and intrigue over the course of six seasons of television. The series sparked a renewed interest in the British royal family and culture, leading to an increase in online activity relating to previously obscure members of the family, plot points, official residences, and, of course, fashion. The show has already made history while portraying historical figures and events in a fresh, dramatic light. The Crown won Netflix's first Emmy for Best Drama and swept the seven major categories at the 2021 Emmys, making it one of the most honoured UK productions of all time.
