“The Crown” Season 5
Disclaimer: The Crown’s maturity rating TV-MA. Viewer discretion is advised.
When I sat down with my dinner the other night, I was surprised to see that I had already finished season five of the hit Netflix Series, “The Crown.” If you haven’t watched it already, “The Crown” is a drama series that tells the story of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to the present day. Over the years, the show has won several awards, such as the Golden Globe award for Best Television Series and Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.
Season five came out on Nov. 9 this year and viewers have a lot to say about the show. This season, to me, has been the most researched and well-done one yet.
It’s July of 1991, and Prince Charles and Princess Diana are in the midst of their public marriage issues. Her Majesty, The Queen, is experiencing backlash from citizens, the government, and the expenses that Britannica – the royal yacht – is causing them.
Without trying to give out any spoilers, I can say that this season was the most heart-wrenching and bittersweet one. Season five has to be the most well-researched one yet, telling not just the story of Queen Elizabeth II, but of several more.
