The Crown Season 5 Will Hit Netflix in November 2022

Fans of The Crown, we have some good news for you! After creator Peter Morgan announced he would end the award-winning series with season five, he reversed course and will proceed with the original plan for six seasons. And it looks like things are already underway on season five.

In a statement from Netflix, Morgan said that as he and the team began discussing storylines for season five, it became apparent that “in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.” 

Netflix’s then vice president of original content, Cindy Holland, added, “The Crown keeps raising the bar with each new season. We can’t wait for audiences to see the upcoming fourth season, and we’re proud to support Peter’s vision and the phenomenal cast and crew for a sixth and final season.”

However, even with the good news, fans shouldn’t expect a deep dive into the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s—Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s—courtship, or their decision to step back from senior roles. (That’s still good news for Prince Harry, who reportedly hoped this would happen.) Says Morgan: “To be clear, season six will not bring us any closer to present day—it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.” 

Season four featured Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret. (Claire Foy, Matt Smith, and Vanessa Kirby famously originated the roles in the first two seasons.) It also marked the first appearance of Princess Diana (Emma Corrin), as Diana and Charles’s dysfunctional relationship was front and center. 

Netflix also confirmed that famed British stage actress Imelda Staunton—who some may remember played Professor Umbridge in the Harry Potter films—will take over as Queen Elizabeth in season five. 

“I have loved watching The Crown from the very start,” Staunton said. “As an actor it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan’s scripts. I am genuinely honored to be joining such an exceptional creative team and to be taking The Crown to its conclusion.”

Emily in Paris Season 2 Drops on December 22—and the First Footage Is Here

Bravo also told Glamour he thinks Gabriel loves Camille very much, “but he also shares a lot of [passion] with Emily.” “There’s sexual chemistry, yes, but there’s more to it than that,” he said. “I think he’s still in the process of understanding what’s going on, so we will have to wait for Darren to decide.” 

But it won’t be just our old favorites returning! Lots of faces were added to the cast on Monday, May 24, when a press release announced a slew of new characters. Most exciting is Jeremy O. Harris, writer of the upcoming Zola movie, as Gregory Elliott Dupree, “an iconic fashion designer and former protégé of Pierre Cadault…. Pierre and Gregory were close, until Gregory’s unexpected and dramatic exit from the atelier left them bitter rivals.” 

Another flashy role goes to Arnaud Binard as Laurent G, “charming and gregarious owner of a popular Saint Tropez nightclub…. Emily meets Laurent when he agrees to promote one of her brands, but soon learns that his connection to Savoir is more complicated than marketing.” And has Emily finally met her match? Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens) will play 30-year-old London boy Alfie, who “refuses to speak French or immerse himself in French culture.” He works for a U.K. bank but prefers to party. Sounds like a perfect foil for a certain young marketing savant we know.

We just learned that August 4 was the final day of filming season two, which means we are getting closer and closer to finding out the fates of our favorite expat. “Last day on set and I can’t imagine wrapping on a more perfect note with my @emilyinparis partner in crime,” Collins wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture with Park. “I’m not crying, you’re crying!…”

Until season two drops, you’ll find us rewatching season one, buying Emily’s phone case (which actually belonged to costume designer Patricia Field), and brushing up on our French. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.

Beyoncé Pens Heartfelt Letter To Fans Following Her 40th Birthday, And Now I’m Emotional

In her thank you letter, Beyoncé also made empowering remarks about how women are taught to believe they can’t be happy as they get older and made it very clear she doesn’t agree with that way of thinking. After telling fans this is the best she’s ever felt, she acknowledged how long some of her fans have been with her before once again sharing how much she appreciates the support:

Marvel’s Important New Lawsuit Involves Black Widow Again, But This Time For A Totally Different Reason

Termination notices were recently filed on behalf of Larry Lieber, the brother of the late Stan Lee and co-creator of Spider-Man, Thor and more, as well as the estates of Don Rico, who co-created Black Widow, Don Heck, co-creator of Iron Man and Black Widow, Gene Colan, who launched names like Captain Marvel and Blade, and finally, Steve Ditko, who co-created Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. All parties are being represented by veteran attorney Marc Toberoff, per Variety.

Your First Look at Bridgerton Season 2 Is Finally Here

If you’re like us, then you’re completely and utterly obsessed with Netflix’s Bridgerton and need to know if a second season is on its way.

Well, it’s happening! Netflix confirmed Bridgerton season two on Wednesday, January 21. “Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix,” reads a tweet from the show’s account. (Bridgerton has also been renewed for a third and fourth season, btw!) 

Here’s everything we know so far about what to expect: 

Filming. Production started in London in the spring of 2021. 

Season two will focus on Daphne’s brother. “We left Anthony Bridgerton at the end of the first season at a bit of a crossroads,” Van Dusen said on Today With Hoda & Jenna, “so I’m looking forward to jumping in and see how he fares in the marriage market.”

So, who is Kate Sheffield, Anthony’s leading lady? In the second book, The Viscount Who Loved Me, Kate Sheffield is the older sister of the woman Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) is set to marry, Edwina. But when she decides Mr. Bridgerton isn’t good enough for her little sis, it kicks off an enemies-to-lovers plot that readers loved.

On February 15, Netflix announced that Sex Education star Simone Ashley would be taking on the role of Kate, who will now be known as Kate Sharma. On May 1, People shared a new photo from the set of season two that features our new main couple, Anthony and Kate.

What should the fans expect between these two? “A lot of arguing,” Ashley said on September 25 during the TULUM fan event.

The cast has been wanting this for a while. Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, recently told Radio Times, “I feel like we’ve established this big world, so I’d love to explore more of it.”

She added, “I’d love to go on that journey with her, to see how she’s changed. I’d really love to come back, because I feel like we’ve just scratched the surface. And because there’s such a huge cast in this show, there’s so much more of all the characters.”

The show’s second season won’t be available any time soon, though. Much like The Crown, Bridgerton has a lengthy filming schedule, which means fans will likely have to wait until at least 2022 for Netflix to drop new episodes.

Sex Education Season 4 Is Officially Happening

You can stop worrying about that Sex Education cliffhanger because season four is officially happening.

On September 25, Ncuti Gatwa and Kedar Williams-Stirling kicked off the big announcement during Netflix’s massive TUDUM fan event. 

Honestly, season 3 left the entire Sex Education crew in a moment of major upheaval. Maeve (Emma Mackey) is off to America to further her education, leaving Otis (Asa Butterfield) relatively single once again. That’s okay, though, because his best friend Eric (Gatwa) is in a similar boat after breaking things off with Adam (Connor Swindells), which I’m still personally devastated about. But hey, maybe something might be brewing between Adam and Rahim (Sami Outalbali)? If so, that may be short-lived considering Moordale Secondary School has officially been sold, leaving everyone to finish their final year of school elsewhere.

Oh, and how can we forget? Dr. Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson) has just read the paternity report for new baby Joy…and things aren’t looking so great for Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt).

Here’s everything we know about Sex Education season 4 so far:

Who is returning? Based on the new announcement, it’s safe to say Gatwa and Williams-Stirling will be reprising their roles as Eric Effiong and Jackson Marchetti, along with the rest of the main players. The biggest question mark at the moment is about Mackey, whose character is currently stateside. However, I have a feeling Maeve won’t be out of the picture for too long. 

Oh, and have we seen the last of Hope Hadden, played by Jemima Kirke? “Because Jemima is just so effortlessly cool, it becomes a very interesting thing to watch what this character is going to do next because you’re not quite sure,” creator Laurie Nunn told Glamour. “We’ll have to wait and see.”

Is Jakob the father? It’s pretty safe to assume the answer is no, considering Jean’s reaction in the finale as well as creator Nunn’s latest interview. “I think that Jakob is not the father,” she told Glamour. “And as I said, let’s really hope for series four so we can unpack that.”

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.


Stranger Things 4 Just Dropped a Creepy New Trailer Featuring Dustin and Steve

Steve and Dustin’s bromance will stay constant. “I like to think they’ll continue to grow and move forward as a team, and I’d like to see what new ways they help each other, and then what steps they get to in their relationship where they might not get along,” Joe Keery (Steve) said to Glamour. “That might make them appreciate more the levity in their relationship.”

Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers will try for long-distance. Remember, the Byerses’ move out of Hawkins puts this fan-favorite couple at risk. “We don’t know [what will happen for them], and the past two seasons we’ve basically been filming together constantly, and it’s like, ‘Huh, what’s next season going to be like?’” Natalia Dyer (Nancy) revealed to Glamour. “We’ve been with these characters for three seasons, and we care about them, so I do think whatever happens between them, I hope it’s given time and space and integrity and reality to what they’re going through.”

The episode names. On November 6, 2019, the Twitter account @StrangerWriters revealed the name of season four, episode one: “The Hellfire Club.”

You can watch footage from the table read. In March 2020, Stranger Things shared a behind-the-scenes look at the entire cast reuniting in Atlanta for the first table read of season four.

When it does come back, it will be the scariest season yet. “Oh, man, it’s pretty amazing—the Duffer brothers have really done it again,” actor Joe Keery told Total Film magazine in May 2020, per People. “I think that this year—and I know I say this every single year—but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark.”

We are getting a slew of new cast members and characters. Here are the descriptions, per a press email from Netflix: 

Jamie Campbell Bower will play Peter Ballard, “a caring man who works as an orderly at a psychiatric hospital. Tired of the brutality he witnesses day after day, will Peter finally take a stand?”

Eduardo Franco will play Argyle, “Jonathan’s new best friend, a fun-loving stoner who proudly delivers delicious pizza pies for Surfer Boy Pizza.”

Joseph Quinn will play Eddie Munson, “an audacious ’80s metalhead who runs The Hellfire Club, Hawkins High’s official D&D club. Hated by those who don’t understand him (and beloved by those who do), Eddie will find himself at the terrifying epicenter of this season’s mystery.” 

Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko, Robert Englund, and Tom Wlaschiha will also have recurring roles. 

A new teaser dropped on September 25. Netflix gave us a look at a brand new location during the massive TUDUM fan event—and things are getting extremely creepy. Check out the clip featuring your fave duo, Steve and Dustin. 

We’ll update this post with more information as it comes in.

Jason Momoa Celebrates Dune’s Opening Weekend Overseas

Like many movies in the age of COVID-19, Dune is attempting to be a monster hit at the box office, especially overseas. With the film releasing on HBO Max and theaters simultaneously, the domestic numbers are somewhat hard to predict. The movie’s early success overseas is encouraging, though, and Jason Momoa took the time to thank fans amid the film’s international rollout. The Aquaman actor posted on his Instagram, saying:
