The fifth series of Netflix's royal drama The Crown will launch on November 9.

The date was shared during Netflix’s Tudum global fan event, which showcased upcoming series and films from the streamer.

The Crown has traditionally launched in November, and the upcoming series will see Dominic West star as Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Diana.

The Wire star West, 52, takes over the role of Charles from Josh O’Connor, while The Night Manager actress Debicki replaces Emma Corrin.

Imelda Staunton will take over the role of the Queen from Olivia Colman, while Jonathan Pryce replaces Tobias Menzies as the Duke of Edinburgh and Lesley Manville will be Princess Margaret, following in the footsteps of Helena Bonham Carter.

The Crown was due to end after the fifth series, but the show’s creator and writer Peter Morgan later said it will be extended to include a sixth series.

Filming on the latest series of The Crown was halted following the death of Britain's Queen Elizabeth and, as a mark of respect, filming was also suspended on the day of her funeral.
