The Crown season 5: the new trailer foreshadows a terrible battle on Netflix
A few days after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the sequel to the phenomenon series The Crown is revealed in pictures.
A little over a month separates us of the release of the fifth season of The Crown, a cult historical series stamped Netflix, which traces the history of the “Queen of England”. Since his death a few days ago, the series has broken new viewing records and it should do even better with this new round of episodes expected for November 9, 2022.
< p>For this fifth season, the cast changes a second time: Imelda Staunton (the odious Dolores Umbridge of Harry Potter) will take the role of the monarch… A monarch confronted this time with unprecedented difficulties. This fifth season, which takes place in the 1990s, should therefore stage the “annus horribilis” of Elizabeth II – the year 1992 during which three of her children were divorced and Windsor Castle suffered a major fire. . A few weeks before the release of this season 5, new images have been unveiled.
And it's a bitter media battle that seems to be brewing between Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West, aka Lady Diana and her husband, the future King Charles III. We see the two royal spouses in full preparation before confidential interviews while radio extracts scroll. The divorce between Charles and Diana is consummated and war is brewing. Elizabeth Debicki in a dark suit, in a chiaroscuro atmosphere, is reminiscent of the image of the very famous 1995 interview, in which the ex-Princess of Wales settled accounts with the monarchy.
This fifth season should be the penultimate of the Netflix series. The Crown is constructed as a coherent set of three cycles, recounting three eras of the Queen's reign. The first two seasons, worn by Claire Foy and Matt Smith (now starring in House of the Dragon) traced the beginning of her reign while the following two depicted a more mature queen , especially during the government of Margaret Thatcher. We do not yet know how the series will end: a season 6 is already being filmed, but it could be postponed following the death of the queen. It will be necessary to wait a few more months before knowing if the Netflix series will end with the death of Elizabeth II or if another end point will have been preferred.
