With Season 4 expected to debut later this year, it appears we're only halfway through Morgan's story about the royal family. It's expected that season four will launch later this year, and will be Oscar victor Colman's final turn as Queen. "We can't wait for audiences to see the upcoming fourth season, and we're proud to support Peter's vision and the phenomenal cast and crew for a sixth and final season".

"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", Morgan added (via Variety).

Season three was released late previous year on the streaming service and, as this season now focused on the time period between 1964 and 1977, the lead role was played by Olivia Coleman as an older Queen Elizabeth II than the first two seasons.

Imelda Staunton will continue as the queen.

Netflix has been kind enough to give us one more season of the critically acclaimed show that delves into the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II and the British Royal family.

Will Prince Harry and Meghan's story be told on the show? We can also expect Lesley Manville, who takes over as Princess Margaret for Helena Bonham Carter in Season 5, to get more time as the queen's younger sister in the sixth and final season.

Season 6 was part of the original plan.


However, he recently chose to add one more season, making the show's fans elated.

It was announced in January this year that they were going to cut the series from the six planned seasons to five. Morgan called it "the ideal time and place to stop".

Sources always said that Morgan would write six seasons, and this idea was further cemented when he signed an overall deal with Netflix past year.
