British Royal News – Peter Morgan Is Pressing The Pause Button On ‘The Crown’ Following Queen Elizabeth’s Death
According to The Hollywood Reporter, production is going to be put on pause “out of respect” for Queen Elizabeth. Peter Morgan has previously called the hit Netflix series a “love letter” to the queen.
Of course, it didn’t take long for royal fans and critics alike to weigh in on the decision. Many of them wrote on social media, “Well, the wording is super vague. But as much as he views the show as a love letter to the Queen, it is first and foremost a business. I have no idea how much control he has over the show but from Netflix’s perspective, it would be insane to push back season 5,” along with, “It must be a pause out of respect to the subject matter, because why would they be worried about their show offending (can’t think of the right word) QEII after her death if they weren’t worried about doing it while she was alive? And if they film in the UK, a lot of the crew might be observing the mourning period.”
Another fan wrote, “They’re going to push this back a year. I can’t see them scheduling this for release whilst the Royals are in mourning. This period of history paints the Royal Family and particularly the Queen in a very bad light. But it will eventually be scheduled because inevitably people like mess.”
