BB The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” hasn’t been as famous since Annette Hargrove knocked down Kathryn Mertuil and fled the scene in Sebastian Valmont’s Jaguar at the end of 1999’s Cruel Intentions, but featuring the premiere of The Crown’s Season 5 teaser, it’s back, baby.

The scene reminds us that Season 5 will feature a few of the most famous incidents in recent Royal Family history, as Charles and Diana go to battle in the tabloids.

Beginning with the 1992 fire at Windsor Castle, the cover image of “Bittersweet Symphony” heightens the suspense as Netflix teases all we may expect this year, first from Revenge Dress to the BBC interview and everything else in between.

This is everything we know currently about Season 5 of The Crown, as well as when and how you can watch it.

What Will Be The Plot Of the Season 5?

The Crown Season 5

Season 5 of The Crown would bring us into the 1990s, meaning we’ll be in for a lot of drama as then-Prince Charles and Princess Diana fought each other in the tabloids.

Although Season 5 will not feature the late Princess Diana’s death in 1997, it will represent the events leading up to her death.

Season 5 of Netflix’s The Crown will follow the Royal Family as they face “perhaps their toughest struggle to yet; as the public publicly questions their role in ’90s Britain.”


There certainly is! And seems like a pretty exciting and tense season is waiting ahead for us.

Release Date

Netflix will release the 5th season of The Crown, which covers Queen Elizabeth II’s life and reign, on November 9, 2022. This will be the first season of the series to be published following the deaths of Prince Philip on April 9, 2021, and Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022.
