This will come as a shock to the millions of fans of the show worldwide, who anticipated a 6th season. Many were of the opinion that The Crown could potentially be a series that would run indefinitely, and could even go all the way up to the modern era.

As well as this, Olivia Colman will return as Queen Elizabeth, following in the footsteps of Claire Foy, who played her majesty with real distinction.
Who will play Queen Elizabeth in season 5?
As ever, there has been much speculation about who will play Queen Elizabeth for the 5th and final season of the show.

Peter Morgan, who created the show, had this to say
