      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Elizabeth Debicki's haunting portrayal does right by the Princess of Wales, but The Crown's final season often feels like a reign extended past its prime.

      Previous Ryan F A letdown of a final chapter in this otherwise great series. Previous seasons had a clear focus on the Crown, on the Queen and her perspective. This season lost focus and got distracted by Princess Dianna why yes fascinating but it is a story that has been told over and over and the first half of the season focused too much on Dianna it had to speed through the rest of the years. Why yes the one-off episodes in previous seasons on other members of the family supported the story but were always focused and came back to the Crown. The last episode especially felt overly rushed and tried to speed past so much that in previous seasons would have made entire episodes. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Dave C It's still got the interest and great performances of its preceding seasons, though this seems to have a lot more plot holes and timeline jumps than they do. I have to admit to finding this season more revealing than I thought it might be. I am glad it is the final season, though. It feels like it's had its time Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review Chris S The Diana episodes (1-4) of this series are well acted but a bit soap opera-ish but this series also has some of the best episodes from the entire six seasons. "Ritz" is a beautiful episode about the lifelong relationship between QEII and Princess Margaret. If this episode was a standalone drama then Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville would both be certs for Golden Globes and an Emmy each, and the writers would win etc. It pissses me off that critics have taken against the more recent series and don't even bother to review it properly or accurately (in the UK anyway, the Telegraph writers just get things wrong, for example making a big point that the Queen didn't attend the blessing of C&C in St George's Chapel, but she did, looking like and wearing exactly what Imelda Staunton is! No fact checking just lazy journalism). Imelda Staunton is just phenomenal as HM. The last episode is totally hers and she proves what a great actress she is. The casting director on all seasons is the best, watching the great actors of our time and the new stars discovered. Sad it's over. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Johanna W Oof. The pandering and hypocrisy were rampant, unwieldy, and boring. Felt like British state television. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review dave d It's a hard show to finish but it was elegantly done. We all know what has occurred in present day so it is what it is. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Savannah G This is an excellent end to such an incredible saga. There are so many tears and goosebumps in this season. The conversations between memories of the other between Diana and Margaret brought the ones considered "side characters" to the front. I thought I was very respectful and realistic of what happens to us individually when we lose our loved ones—well done! It's one of my favorite shows!
