Bad news lads, The Crown will be ending after just five seasons

A crying shame, tbh.

There's bad news for fans of The Crown today because the series is set to end after five seasons.

The Netflix show was originally planned to run for six season taking audiences up to the present day, however creator Peter Morgan has since said that this will not be the case.

Unfortunately, this means that the series won't be portraying the most recent royal scandals including Prince Andrew's entirely questionable relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

It also won't be covering Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to leave the royal family.

Morgan told The Sun that working on the script for the show's fifth season made it apparent that that's where The Crown should end.

“At the outset I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons," he said.


“But now that we have begun work on the stories for season five it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop.”

Season four of The Crown, potentially due for release some time this year, will feature The Troubles, with a number of scenes reportedly already having been filmed.

It will depict the real-life event that saw Lord Mountbatten assassinated by an IRA member in 1979, along with two teenagers.

The mother of one of the teens, Mary Hornsey, has said that she hopes the drama will show sensitivity in portraying the events of 1979, that saw Mountbatten's fishing boat blown up by a bomb.

"There are two aspects of truth – the kind that we can make up that we want to see (on screen) and the actual truth. I think that is very important," she told the Belfast Telegraph.

"I also think that the emotion involved in something so great as that should come over."

The Crown seasons 1-3 are streaming on Netflix now.
