Imelda Staunton: The Crown’ has a new queen


While production on “The Crown” season 6 was briefly halted after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, season 5 is still on track to begin on November 9.

When the popular series returns to Netflix, Imelda Staunton will take on the role of the Queen from Olivia Colman, who portrayed her in Seasons 3 and 4 of the royal drama.

Claire Foy played Queen Elizabeth II in the show’s first two seasons.

According to Netflix’s description, Season 5 focuses on the Queen “approaching the 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne.”

“Departing Britannia for her annual tour of Scotland’s Western Isles, she reflects on a reign that has spanned nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television and the twilight of the British Empire,” the description reads. “However, as a new decade kicks in, the old certainties are no longer guaranteed.”

The collapse of the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is also a major story.

Dominic West plays Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki plays Princess Diana, and Jonathan Pryce plays the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, in the upcoming season.
