Thank you! I was on a busy train headed to work with an umbrella in one hand trying to type out a post. I had intended to adjust my post once I got into work.

Something's fishy here.  Why stop?  The story goes on and there is so much content to dramatize.

I can only imagine Netflix pulled the plug. The show is wildly expensive to produce.

Wonder if they’ll finish with the series at Diana’s death, as that part of the story was already covered in The Queen.

Peter Morgan says that Staunton will take the Queen into the 21st century, so after Diana.

This is exactly what I've been hoping for since day one, with Mirren finishing out the series in a season that picks up after The Queen.

It was always planned as a 6 season show—Morgan said the 5th season storyline wraps up their intended trajectory. It was never meant to go to modern times.

I could see them rebooting and creating new seasons once the Queen eventually... moves on. Netflix does have the easy luxury of just adding to their shows whenever.

I think the producers just though that anything post-Diana has been done and covered to death. It was a good time to call it a day.

Morgan said the fifth season will culminate with Britain entering the new millennium. So I guess season five will cover 1992 to 2000 or so. I think his reasoning for ending the series makes sense. He thinks not enough time has passed to write about the past twenty years.

I wonder if the fifth season might be more than 10 episodes? That would make up for not having a 6th season.

I predict the show will end with the deaths of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother which took place in 2002. Their deaths feels like a natural end since we’ve seen these characters grow from season one. The Queen will grieve for her mother and her sister but will also look to the future of her family. 

For season five I’d love to see Rosamund Pike as Diana.
