After nearly two years, The Crown is back to present another notable chapter from the life and reign of the late Queen Elizabeth II. There’s a different kind of anticipation for the show’s fifth season, given that it comes following the passing away of both the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip.

Interestingly, The Crown S5 will feature an entirely new cast as the story skips ahead to focus on the next important phase of the Queen’s reign. You’ll see Imelda Staunton taking on the mantle of Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Dominic West as Prince Charles, and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, among others.

Coming to the plot, season five will revolve around the events concerning the royalty from the ’90s. One of the key things audiences are sure to be looking out for is how the show covers the rocky marriage lives of the Queen’s children.
