How To Watch The Crown Season 6 For Free

They also don’t offer their service as add-ons to other streamers like Hulu or Amazon. The only way to watch The Crown is through a current Netflix subscription.

The Crown Season 5 Ending Explained

The Crown season 5 focused on a darker period in Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, going up to 1997. By the end of the season, Princess Diana and Prince Charles filed for divorce, Tony Blair was elected Prime Minister, and Britannia, the royal yacht, was decommissioned.

The last two plot points are possibly the most significant, as they deal with the season’s overall theme of modernization of the British government.

But what started as a question of the Queen’s relevancy ended up as a question about the relevancy of the entire monarchy.

Season 6 will likely continue to deal with Elizabeth II’s struggle with modernization, as well as cover the tragic death of Princess Diana.

Will There Be A Season 7?

While Netflix is advertising season 6 of The Crown as the finale, there’s a chance the show could continue in another form.

The creator of The Crown, Peter Morgan, is interested in doing a prequel story to The Crown. Instead of focusing on Elizabeth II’s reign, the plot would go back to 1901, the year of Queen Victoria’s death.

If the prequel show does happen, it would run up to where The Crown begins. That is, it would end with Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding in 1947.

But neither Netflix nor Morgan has confirmed any continuation of The Crown, whether a season 7 or a prequel series.
