During a BBC radio Woman’s Hour, Imelda opened up about facing an extra challenge while walking into the shoes of the British Monarch. She said “I think my sort of extra challenge as if I needed it, is that I’m now doing the Queen that we’re a little more familiar with,” she said, per People. “With Claire Foy, it was almost history and now I’m playing one that people could say ‘she doesn’t do that,’ ‘she’s not like that,’ and that’s my personal bête noire.”

Is Season 5 The Conclusion?
It was initially planned for The Crown to conclude after Season 5, however, Netflix announced in July 2019 that the show will be renewed for a sixth and final season. When it came time to lay out the stories for Series 5, creator Peter Morgan realized that he needed to return to the drawing board and ponder doing six seasons instead of five.
HE explained, “To be clear, [Season] 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day–it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
The Shahab Take
The fourth season of the period drama explored the happenings between 1979 to 1990. Where season 5 fits in this whole timeline Season 5 timeline is yet to be confirmed by Netflix, but it looks like it will follow up in the early 1990s.
we still hang in doubt whether or not the upcoming episodes will cover a decade as the previous ones have.
