    Netflix confirmed Imelda Staunton is taking over the role for just one final season.

    This is brave and frankly unpredictable.

    I’m optimistic though, Nina Gold always nails these castings

    Great choice. Very strange that Imelda is only getting one season, though… I guess with the huge production value it makes sense, but I could also see the creators ending the timeline of the show a little earlier than planned just because they might not want to get TOO involved in modern times and modern affairs so as to not possibly paint the current young royals in a bad light or offend them. It would seem in bad taste if they did do super modern and recent stuff.

    I’m quite sad that the show will end with its fifth season because there are so many more stories to tell. But if Morgan thinks it’s the best place and time to stop, I guess we should just trust him.

    I think it’s smart to end it in the early 2000s. It’s a shame we won’t get two seasons with each actress, but it’s better not to drag the story.

    Imelda Staunton will play Queen Elizabeth II in the fifth and final season of The Crown.

    How far are they going to cover? Like the recent stuff I hope isn’t in it (the two weddings and the kids and all that is clearly not happening but if i recall correctly Burrell affair was something they might want to avoid)

    It will probably just be the length of Blair’s tenure as PM.

    Yeah it’s too many landmines that are too recent; I’m sure Peter Morgan still wants to live lol.

    The papers ran headline after headline about how “inaccurate” the recent season is and that it was disrespectful to the family (a family that Prince Andrew is a member of mind), when it has always been a fictional dramatisation of what goes on behind closed doors. I can imagine Morgan being too tired to deal with that any more.

    Creatively it makes sense to end at the death of Margaret in 2002.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I’m curious if they will do the same thing with Stranger Things. 5 seasons of that show will be more than enough and they should write towards an endgame. Maybe Netflix does not want shows going on for 6+ seasons

    Mirren’s casting would be too weird.
