After previously announcing that The Crown will end after the fifth season, creator Peter Morgan changed his mind and decided to end the hit series after season six.

"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," Morgan said. "To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail."

Season six will bring the story up to the early 2000s — long before Kate Middleton and Meghan joined the royal family.
