The Crown Season 5: Release date, cast, and everything you need to know

The 4th season of The Crown, Netflix’s drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, dropped in 2020. It was set during the 1980s and introduced us to Lady Diana Spencer and Margaret Thatcher, two individuals who had a big impact on the decade.

How Long Will Each Season of the Crown Be?

The show should have six 10-episode seasons, however, when The Crown maker Peter Morgan was writing the 5th season, he concluded it was “the perfect time and place to stop.”
