Netflix unveil premiere date and first trailer for ‘The Crown’ season 5

The first trailer for the upcoming season teases an “all out war” between Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

Netflix has announced The Crown will return after two years and premiere on November 9th, Netflix revealed during their TUDUM event.

The latest season will be set in the mid to early 90s and will feature another recasting as the story of the late Queen Elizabeth progresses further. Imelda Staunton will take over the role of Her Majesty while Dominic West and Elizabeth Debecki will play Prince Charles and Princess Diana, respectively.

The first trailer for season five was also revealed, which begins with a voiceover of a news report reading: “Buckingham Palace is issuing this statement: ‘It is with regret, the Prince and Princess of Wales are separating.”

Close-ups of Charles and Diana’s hands, then faces, are shown as other reports describe “uproar in Britain after Prince Charles bared his soul to the nation, but the Princess of Wales upstaged her husband.” 

Both Charles and Diana are then seen having their hair and make-up done as they prepare for their separate interviews. “This is becoming all-out war,” another voice can be heard saying.

Production is currently underway on the show’s sixth and final season, but was forced to temporarily come to a halt earlier this month following the Queen’s death.
