The Crown - Season 05 [DVD]
About this deal
Will Powell as Prince Harry of Wales, Charles and Diana's younger son and the third-in-line to the British throne
Season 4 also ended with the resignation of Margaret Thatcher, which means we’ll see a new Prime Minister enter the fray. Season 5 will follow the tenure of John Major, played by Jonny Lee Miller, and we’ll get a short burst of Tony Blair ( Bertie Carvel), too, who was in office during Diana’s death. After the fourth season, there were increased calls for Netflix to add a disclaimer to The Crown to emphasise that the series is a fictionalised portrayal based on historical events. These calls increased given that the fifth season was released only two months after the Queen's death. Veteran actress Judi Dench wrote an open letter to The Times, deeming the series "crude sensationalism" and calling for a disclaimer to be added.  Netflix updated both the series description and the season five trailer caption on YouTube to refer to the series as a "fictional dramatization".  However, upon the release of the series, no episode contained a disclaimer.  Showrunner Peter Morgan has, however, confirmed that season 5 won't cover Diana's tragic death in 1997, as that event will form the crux of season 6. There's been a good deal of controversy concerning how the show plans to deal with the tragedy, but those involved in its production have pledged to handle the subject with the utmost sensitivity.The Crown becomes even more of a Corleone drama in season 5".
