The production of the famous Netflix series about Queen Elizabeth II and her family “The Crown” has been suspended due to the death of the monarch.
A spokesman for the series said production was suspended on Friday “as a mark of respect” and will also be suspended on the day of the Queen’s funeral.
The sixth season of the show is in production. The first two seasons starred Claire Foy as the young Princess Elizabeth, who ascended the throne and gradually grew into the role of the monarch, and in the third and fourth seasons, Olivia Colman was a more mature queen. The performance gradually approached current events. Netflix recently announced the cast of actors who will play Prince William and his wife Kate in the sixth season.
The fifth season, starring Imelda Staunton as the Queen, will premiere in November.
To date, the series has won 22 Emmy Awards, including one Outstanding Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama for Foy and Coleman. Josh O’Connor, who played Prince Charles in 13 episodes, also won an Emmy for best actor in a drama for his portrayal of the future king at a young age.
