According to Deadline, filming for the sixth season of Netflix’s award-winning historical drama The Crown is expected to stop temporarily out of respect to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Creator and writer of the series Peter Morgan in an email message described the acclaimed series as “a love letter” to the queen.

He wrote, “The Crown is a love letter to her and I’ve nothing to add for now, just silence and respect. I expect we will stop filming out of respect too.”

The Crown debuted on Netflix in November 2016 and has spanned four seasons since, with the fifth expected to premiere in November 2022. When the show began production in 2016, Stephen Daldry, one of the creative minds behind the show and director of several episodes in the first season vowed that if the show happened to be in production when she passes it would stop for a respectable period of time.

“None of us know when that time will come but it would be right and proper to show respect to the Queen. It would be a simple tribute and a mark of respect. She’s an extraordinary woman and people will be upset,” he said back in 2016 when The Crown made its debut on Netflix.

Over the course of the show’s four seasons, several actresses have portrayed Queen Elizabeth including Claire Foy (seasons 1-2), Olivia Colman (seasons 3-4) and Imelda Stauton whose reign is to begin in the shows fifth season come November.
