'The Crown': Fans demand a new season to honor Queen Elizabeth II after her death at 96
'They definitely owe us the Queen funeral. And it needs to end there', says one viewer. Seasons 5 and 6 of the show are currently in the works
The death of Queen Elizabeth II has brought an outpouring of messages and tributes from people all over the world as they pay their respects to the memorable life of Britain's longest-serving monarch. Surprisingly, the Queen's passing has quickly resulted in fans of Netflix's hit series, 'The Crown' demanding a new season of the show in order to honor the reign of the late Queen.
The historical drama television series has so far run for four seasons, covering the life and rule of Britain's longest-serving monarch.It has been the recipient of accolades and favorable reactions, with fans hooked on the retelling of history, politics and royal family drama during the 1900s. A fifth and sixth season of the show is currently in the works, intending to showcase the Queen's reign in the 21st century. Now, viewers are calling for an appropriate conclusion to the series, demanding that it covers the end of her memorable reign of 70 years.
Principally created by Peter Morgan, 'The Crown' had been both, lauded and criticized for its portrayal of historical events. While Seasons 1 and 2 revolved around the initial phase of her life as a monarch, from her marriage to Prince Phillip to the crisis of the Suez Canal and the birth of Prince Edward, Seasons 3 and 4 spanned the events of 1964 to 1977, concluding with the monarch's battles with the then-Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher as well as the introduction of Camilla Shand and ended with the wedding between Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles.
According to reports, Seasons 5 and 6 are in the works, but fans will not be satisfied if a new season, focused on covering the Queen's death does not fructify. "The Crown writers who planned to finish the show during the 2000s events realizing that they have to write a couple more seasons to logically finish the series #QueenElizabeth," writes one fan, while another adds, "They definitely owe us the Queen funeral. And it needs to end there."
