Filming on The Crown season 5 to commence in July

There's currently no specific release date but it's thought it will hit Netflix sometime next year.

Netflix has announced that the fifth season of its acclaimed royal drama The Crown will begin filming this July. 

Crew members have been spotted arriving at London’s Elstree Studios where the majority of it will take place under strict COVID-19 protocols. 

Every two seasons the show has a complete overhaul of its cast in order to reflect the aging of the characters. 

Imelda Stauton is set to replace Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II while Jonathan Pryce will take over from Toby Menzies as Prince Phillip. 

Lesley Manville will replace Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret and Elizabeth Debicki will take over from Emma Corin as Princess Diana, who won a Golden Globe for her role. 

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but it’s been reported that Fleabag’s Andrew Scott has been approached to play former Prime Minister Tony Blair. 

Season 5 of The Crown is set to explore the 1990s which was an incredibly turbulent period for the Royal Family. 

Along with Princess Diana’s tragic death in 1997, the decade also saw a devastating fire tear through Windsor Castle, the Queen and Prince Philip’s state visit to South Africa and Prince Andrew’s divorce from Sarah Ferguson. 

You can stream all four seasons of The Crown on Netflix now.
