The historic series “The Crown” enters its final phase with season 5. As usual, the cast will change again. The roles of Diana and Charles went to Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West. We can see them in their role in new images.
The Crown : season 5 opens a new era
At the end of last year, The Crown was returning to Netflix with a fourth season. The series revolves around the queen Elizabeth II and paints a portrait, by extension, of the royal family. The story begins early in its existence and every two seasons a renewal of the cast takes place. Thus, it was Claire Foy who camped the queen during the firsts, then the brilliant Olivia Colman took over and, for the next two, Imelda Staunton was chosen.
Around her, a whole new cast will appear. We can therefore discover Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West as Diana Spencer and Charles. They are also the ones we can see on the images unveiled by Netflix. The platform unveiled two pictures that linger separately on the spouses. The historical series is very rarely wrong in its casting choices and the two actors present seem well placed to embody these figures popular with the British.
After marriage, the couple’s divorce
Seasons 5 and 6 will be the last for The Crown and we will go this time in the 90s. At a time when the couple formed by Diana and Charles is in the sights of the tabloids. Their separation takes place in 1992, 11 years after a marriage that was shown in season 4. We will therefore follow the end of their relationship, tensions within the clan and inevitably the death of Diana in the tragically famous car crash. The previous episodes had been poorly received by the royal family, who felt that the presentation of Prince Charles and his behavior against Diana were not flattering. We can’t wait to see how the sequel will manage this figure in this delicate stage of divorce.
The filming of The Crown continues at present. The broadcast of season 5 will certainly take place in 2022.
