The Crown on Netflix has concluded after seven years and six seasons, ending at a moment that many viewers may not have anticipated. The historical dramatization of Queen Elizabeth II‘s rise to prominence, which began with her marriage to Prince Philip in 1947, does not entirely modernize the monarch’s tale. Rather, the story of The Crown comes to an end in 2005, which is 17 years prior to her passing in 2022 at the age of 96.

In a Netflix featurette that premiered over the weekend, series creator and writer Peter Morgan states, “It was always my feeling that I didn’t want to come right up to the present.” “I’ve always wanted to keep a safe distance from our current location.”

We had to create a narratively compelling episode where you were genuinely satisfied that you had reached the end, despite the fact that you were still nearly 20 years away, according to Morgan, in order to accomplish that.

The resulting finale brings together Claire Foy, Olivia Colman, and Imelda Staunton, who have all played Queen Elizabeth on screen over the course of the six seasons of the show. It also creates a conflict within the head of state, who ultimately reaffirms her longstanding devotion to her civic duty since she assumed the throne in 1952, just two months before turning 26.

Morgan says, “I wrote the last episode as an internal discussion the queen was having about whether she should continue or turn over to Charles.” “I believed that the internal dialogue she had with her younger self could be dramatized. I was fully committed to not bringing myself up to date, so it was a fun challenge.

In the film, Morgan—who also wrote the screenplay for Helen Mirren’s 2006 biographical drama The Queen—explains why he spent decades studying the Queen Mother’s life.
