Imelda Staunton could be set to take over from Olivia Colman in the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown.
According to Baz Bamingboye, Staunton will take over from Colman as The Queen in 2021.
However, Netflix has denied the report, saying: “We are currently filming season 4 of The Crown but have not commissioned any further seasons as yet, therefore any news on casting remains pure speculation.”
I will say Bamingboye is often right about these things, and I suspect Netflix doesn’t want to take the spotlight away from Colman during her tenure as Elizabeth.
It’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
