According to reports, it appears that Netflix is thinking about potentially delaying production of The Crown season 6. This comes after the announcement that Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away yesterday. As such, rumours suggest that Netflix will temporarily pause production on the show as a mark of respect.If you haven’t seen The Crown before, then you’re certainly missing out on amazing viewing. Since Netflix released the first season in 2016, people across the world have loved the show. The show depicts the British royal family’s lives, particularly Queen Elizabeth II’s life. Fans saw her rise to the monarchy after her father’s death and how she dealt with problems in her family. For many people, the show gave them the first glimpse of behind-the-scenes drama with the royal family.As the show has begun to focus on different storylines, so have the actors changed. Previously, actor Claire Foy played the role of the younger Queen Elizabeth II. Olivia Colman then played the role for seasons 3 to 4 of the show, while Imelda Staunton is set to be Queen Elizabeth II for seasons five and The Crown season 6. Other members of the royal family, such as Prince Philip, also faced similar changes.

Previously, season 5 was going to be the last season of the show. However, Netflix soon changed their mind and announced that The Crown season 6 would be the final season. In this season, creator Peter Morgan will take the show almost into the present day. The Crown season 6 will show the royal family in the 1990s and early 2000s, including the death of Princess Diana. Recently, Netflix cast the roles of Prince William and Kate Middleton with Rufus Kampas and Ed McVey.

However, the British royal family announced yesterday that Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. This follows a reign of 70 years, marking the longest-reigning monarch in British history. Additionally, she was also the second longest-reigning monarch in world history. As such, it makes sense that Netflix is considering temporarily pausing production on The Crown season 6. After all, people around the world are feeling the effect of such a huge loss, and it would be a sign of respect to pause production on The Crown season 6. From Paris to Washington, there has been an outpouring of sadness to make the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Naturally, Netflix has not made any official announcements yet, but many rumors suggest that they will put this delay into place.Additionally, previous seasons of The Crown have been rather respectful in their portrayal of the Queen. Creator Peter Morgan made the decision to portray the royals in a sympathetic life, showing the hardships of being one of the most iconic people in the world. So, some people may consider continuing to make The Crown season 6, a drama about the Queen’s life, as being insensitive or disrespectful.

If the delay goes ahead, that would mean an even longer wait for The Crown season 6. Season 5 is set to air in November this year, so season 6 will likely release in 2023-2024. In this final season, the producers announced that the storylines would not go further than the early 2000s. It’s unclear why they made this decision. However, it’s likely that they believe recent controversial events should not be portrayed in the show.

So, don’t expect to see any royal weddings or Meghan Markle in The Crown season 6 or season 5. It’s also unknown if Her Majesty’s death could change some other storylines in the show. The writers may choose to remove certain plot points deemed to be upsetting to those mourning the Queen’s death. In the meantime, we are awaiting an official statement from Netflix about the show.
