The Crown Season 5 Release Updates, Cast, Synopsis, and More



The Crown Season 5 Release Updates, Cast, Synopsis, and More

The Crown is one of the most talked-about shows on Netflix, and everyone can’t wait to see the next chapter unfold. Season 4 of the drama hit the streaming service on Nov. 15, 2020, but fans are already eager to know what will happen in The Crown season 5.

With the award-winning The Crown season 4, fans were excited to see the final performances from Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter, Tobias Menzies, and the rest of the breathtaking cast.

The series has always brought in some serious star power to fill the shoes of the monarchy magnificently, and The Crown season 5 is sure not to disappoint.

Despite the original plan being for a six-chapter affair, for a while many subscribers were under the impression that The Crown season 5 was going to be the last. Peter Morgan even once indicated that The Crown season 5 was to be the final run, but he told Deadline he changed his mind.

Netflix later announced there would be the sixth season, meaning fans should prepare themselves for the beginning of the end when The Crown season 5 finally makes its way to Netflix.

The Crown season 5 release updates

During Netflix’s first TUDUM fan event in September 2021, Netflix announced that The Crown season 5 would be released in November 2022. Aligned with the series’ resurgence in popularity due to current events, The Crown will again announce news at 2022’s TUDUM event.

Prior to the announcements at TUDUM, Deadline shared the production team would be picking things back up for The Crown season 5 in June 2021. The fifth season was initially slated to come out in the spring of 2021, but thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, things obviously changed.

But it isn’t that dramatic of a difference as this two-year gap is nothing new for this series, especially when it brings in a new set of actors. When Claire Foy finished her tenure as the Queen, and Olivia Colman took over, the same amount of time took place in-between seasons.

The Crown season 5 cast

One thing the Netflix original is known for is its brilliant choices when it comes to casting, and we already know who is on the roster for The Crown season 5. The series started off with Claire Foy portraying Queen Elizabeth with Olivia Colman taking over for seasons three and four.

For The Crown season 5, Imelda Staunton, who fans will recognize from the Harry Potter films and most recently on the Apple TV+ series Trying, will be taking The Crown to the finish line, which is something she is very honored to be a part of as she is a fan of the Netflix original series.

Jessica Kirby and Helen Bonham Carter have been exceptional as Princess Margaret, and bringing it home for the final two seasons will be none other than Lesley Manville. Manville’s most notable credits include Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, The Queen, Love Life, and Phantom Thread.

Game of Thrones actor and The Two Popes star, academy award nominee Jonathan Pryce will take over as Duke of Edinburgh after a great run by fellow Thrones alumni Tobias Menzies. Princess Diana will be played by Tenet’s Elizabeth Debicki for both seasons 5 and 6, making the final two runs a star-studded affair no one should miss.

Check out the season 5 cast so far:

  • Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II
  • Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
  • Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret
  • Jonny Lee Miller as John Major
  • Flora Montgomery as Norma Major
  • Dominic West as Prince Charles
  • Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales
  • Marcia Warren as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother
  • Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles
  • Senan West as Prince William of Wales

The Crown season 5 synopsis

Although an official synopsis for The Crown season 5 will be soon revealed, savvy fans have a good idea of where things could go narrative-wise. Season 4 of The Crown focused on the 1970s and 1980s, so its safe to assume that the next endeavor will bring audiences into the 1990s, which was a rough decade for the royal family.

It will be interesting to see how they handle that less than stellar time period involving marriage breakdowns from Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, and Princess Anne as well as the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997.

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about The Crown season 5, given all the creators have to work with when it comes to talented performers and plenty of riveting source material.

The Crown season 5 will be setting up the Netflix original farewell tour, and fans will not want to miss a second of what’s in store before the series’ time on the throne is over.

We’ll be sure to let you know more about The Crown season 5 when we find out! Stay tuned for more information about the fifth installment of one of Netflix’s highest-profile shows.

List of all the shows Netflix has canceled in 2023.



2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton

Netflix movie Lou starts streaming on Friday, September 23.
