Netflix is currently working on ‘The Crown’ prequel

Royal drama enthusiasts will be delighted to know that Netflix is reportedly working on a prequel to the popular drama series The Crown

Created by Peter Morgan, the show has focused on the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the British royal family, the sociopolitical landscape, and other family secrets, scandals, and events. 

Currently, the show is in production for the sixth and final season and gearing up to release its fifth season in November 2022. The last two seasons will focus on the darkest regime of the Queen’s reign, including Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s tumultuous marriage, Diana’s untimely demise, and the Royal family’s flailing reputation amidst other problems. 

The prequel has not yet been greenlit but is speculated to chronicle events following Queen Victoria’s demise in 1901. It will end right before The Crown begins and include the event where Edward VIII fell for Wallis Simpson and renounced his throne. 

The series will also focus on the rise of socialism and fascism in Europe while recording the events of the Great Wars. 

Currently, fans are plenty excited for the fifth season, including Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles etc.

The showrunners are currently hunting for a Kate Middleton lookalike for the sixth and final season.
