Except for the performances of some cast members, the current season fails to repeat the success of the previous ones.

Check out the reviews:

“Season 5 is sorely lacking in focus, which puts too much pressure on the cast and production.” – IndieWire.

“A season that fails in its attempt to show the most shocking stories of this era while inserting a dash of compassion into family history.” – Decide.

“After this season, it remains to be seen if ‘The Crown’ will end things on a high – or if, like the Monarchy itself, it will struggle to maintain its relevance until the end.” – Collider.

“With the exception of Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen, this is a season that already feels very outdated and overdue. Something not worth continuing…” – Deadline.

“Once again, ‘The Crown’ manages to surpass its previous seasons. Charles and Diana are front and center here, but the show still feels very much like an ensemble. The script and the acting are amazing. It’s fascinating to see recent events given historical treatment. – Beyond the trailer.

“Despite the thousands of indignant words that have been written accusing him of turning the royal family into a cheap soap opera, the first three episodes of the new season are boring. But the good news is that it gets better from there. . Much better.” – Times UK.
