The Crown May Pause Production Out of Respect for Queen Elizabeth II
While the world at large is still struggling to come to terms with the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the entertainment industry will also feel the effects. Fans of the hit series “The Crown” will inevitably see the show impacted to a certain extent as it’s been reported creator, showrunner, and writer Peter Morgan has indicated that production on the sixth and final season may be suspended indefinitely.
Regarding Her Majesty, Morgan stated, "'The Crown' is a love letter to her and I've nothing to add, for now, just silence and respect. I expect we will stop filming out of respect too." Netflix hasn't yet made any official announcements on the matter, but should this understandable decision come to pass, viewers likely won't notice any sort of delay.
The Queen's death didn't exactly come as a surprise as the production long anticipated such an eventuality and prepared accordingly. Notably, Season 5 is still set to debut sometime in November of 2022, giving the creative team plenty of wiggle room to pick up filming on the final season once again after the appropriate time of mourning has passed.
