'The Crown' Has Been Renewed For A Sixth Season

'The Crown' Has Been Renewed For A Sixth Season

It's good news for The Crown fans!

Netflix has just confirmed the show will run for six seasons, instead of five - as previously thought.

"News from the palace: we can confirm there will be a sixth (and final) season of @TheCrownNetflix, in addition to the previously announced five!" The streaming platform tweeted.

So far, there has been three seasons of The Crown, with the fourth expected to (fingers crossed!) air later this year.

And while writer and creator Peter Morgan had previously revealed there would be five seasons, it looks as though the team have done a U-turn.

Netflix continued: "Writer/creator Peter Morgan: 'As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.'"

YASSS.

The 64-year-old star said at the time: "I have loved watching The Crown from the very start. As an actor it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan's scripts.

The Crown announced the news on Twitter, with a statement from Lesley, 64. In it, she said: "I could not be happier to be playing Princess Margaret. The baton is being passed on from two formidable actresses and I really don't want to let the side down.

"Furthermore, to play siblings with my dear friend Imelda Staunton will be nothing short of a complete joy."
