The Crown is about to see a massive shake-up as we say goodbye to Olivia Colman’s Queen Elizabeth in season 4 to make way for Imelda Staunton in season 5.

But that’s not the only major change we’re about to see from the fictional version of the Royals, with a time jump and a complete cast move over.

So what can we expect from the family? Where will we see them next and what are they about to cover?

Here’s what we know about what’s coming up…

Who is in the cast of The Crown season 5?

It’s all change for The Crown, with the time jump allowing all the characters to be recast.

So far, only a handful of essential roles have been made official – most notably Imelda Staunton, who will replace Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth.

Game Of Thrones star Jonathan Pryce will take over from Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, and Lesley Manville will replace Helena Bonham-Carter as Princess Margaret.

Elizabeth Debicki, known for Tenet and Guardians Of The Galaxy, will replace Emma Corrin as Princess Diana, but the new Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are yet to be confirmed.

It was previously reported that Dominic West has been approached to play Charles, however this has not been officially commented on.

Major character that are expected to join the series include prime ministers John Major and Tony Blair.

What time period will The Crown’s next season be set in?

The time period for the next series is yet to be confirmed, and we last see the cast in December 1990.

It’s expected the series will now flash forward at least two to three years, with 1992 being the year that Charles and Diana officially announced their split.

While the divorce wasn’t finalised until 1996, the announcement triggered a chain of events that included the uncovering of recorded phone calls between Charles and Camilla, explicitly detailing their affair.

There were also several public interviews on both sides detailing their rocky marriage, including the now notorious Diana Interview with Martin Bashir in which she declared there were ‘three people in her marriage’.

It is likely that the upcoming series will also mark the death of Princess Diana, who was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris in August, 1997.

When will The Crown season 5 be released?

Unfortunately, we’re in for a long wait for the next batch of episodes of The Crown.

According to Deadline, the series won’t be going into production until at least June 2021, with a tentative release date being in 2022.

We will be keeping you updated as any more news comes through.

The Crown is available now on Netflix.
