Netflix has changed its plans. The streaming service decided to eventually renew “The Crown” for a final season 6, just barely a few months after it announced that it would be ending with Season 5. Series creator Peter Morgan stated: “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 (…). To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present day – it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
