The Crown Will Likely Pause Production to honor the Late Queen Elizabeth  II

Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning series The Crown will pause production of season 6 out of respect after Queen Elizabeth's II passing


 


Peter Morgan, the show's creator, will likely suspend production of season 6 for an indeterminate amount of time out of respect for Queen Elizabeth II, whose death was recently announced. In a historical drama, Netflix's Emmy Award-winning series The Crown depicts Queen Elizabeth's life through the political and emotional events that impacted her reign as we know it today.


 


Imelda Staunton will assume the role of the Queen in season 5 of the programme, replacing Clare Foy and Olivia Colman, who portrayed the monarch in recent seasons. Foy represented a youthful Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to the early 1960s and won an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series in 2018. Colman portrayed Queen Elizabeth II from the 1960s to the early 1990s and received an Emmy in 2021.


 


British director Stephen Daldry, who directed and produced a few episodes of the Emmy-winning series between 2016 and 2019, stated to the writer Baz Bamigboye that when The Crown premiered in 2016, they had previously addressed what would happen if the Queen passed away during the production of the show: "None of us know when that moment will come, but it would be right and proper to show respect to the queen. It would be a simple tribute and a mark of respect."


In November, Netflix will release the fifth season of The Crown, which will cover the public and private events of the royal family during the 1990s, with an emphasis on 1992. In the words of Peter Morgan, "The Crown is a love letter to her and I’ve nothing to add, for now, just silence and respect. I expect we will stop filming out of respect too.”
