With premiere date the fifth season The Crown

The Crown will return to her Netflix throne, the drama series about Queen Elizabeth II and her extended family will begin its fifth season on November 9, the streaming service said on Saturday. The debut will come two months after the queen’s death on September 8 at the age of 96.

Production of the sixth series was suspended on the day of the queen’s death and again for the funeral of Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

In the upcoming season, Imelda Staunton becomes the latest in a succession of actors who have played Elizabeth throughout the decades of her life and reign. The first two seasons starred Claire Foy as the young Princess Elizabeth who ascends the throne and takes on the role of her queen. Seasons three and four featured Olivia Colman as a more mature queen.

The show has won 22 Emmy Awards, including a trophy for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Drama Actress honors for Foy and Colman. Josh O’Connor, who played Prince Charles as a young man in 13 episodes, won an Emmy for best actor in a drama.

The pivotal role of Princess Diana shifted from Emma Corrin in season four to Elizabeth Debicki (Tenet) in seasons five and six. She plays alongside Dominic West as Prince Charles. The prince, Isabel’s eldest son, became King Carlos III after her death.

Other newcomers to the cast include Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret and Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip.

It is expected that the fifth season of The Crown cover the royal family’s turbulent 1990s, when Charles and Diana’s marriage fell apart. The Princess of Wales died following a car accident in Paris in August 1997.

The series has been widely acclaimed as a drama, but has been criticized by some for lapses in historical accuracy. Two years ago, Netflix rejected calls to add a disclaimer to the series.

Peter Morgan, creator of The Crown and writer of other recent history dramas, such as queen Y Frost/Nixonhas defended his work, calling it meticulous research and true spirit.
