The Crown became one of Netflix’s biggest hits since premiering in 2016, and its final season is coming our way this fall. The streamer dropped a new teaser for Season 6 of the acclaimed royal drama and used this short clip to announce its highly-anticipated release date.
The show’s final season will return to Netflix on November 16, but only four episodes will premiere on that day. Netflix decided to build even more hype for this series by splitting Season 6 into two parts, with the remaining six episodes set to premiere on December 14.
Imelda Staunton returns as Queen Elizabeth in the new teaser, which offers glimpses of her younger days when she was played by Claire Foy and Olivia Colman. The promo poster also gave us a taste of things to come in the new season, showing Queen Elizabeth walking alone in a spotlight and Princess Diana sitting alone on a dock.
In addition to Staunton, Season 6 will also see Jonathan Pryce, Lesley Manville, Elizabeth Debicki, Dominic West, Salim Daw, and Khalid Abdalla return to their roles in the previous season. Newcomers Rufus Kampa, Fflyn Edwards, Ed McVey, Luther Ford, and Meg Bellamy are set to join them, all in their debut roles.
