Producers of the landmark Netflix drama “The Crown” are pausing production of the show’s sixth season after news of The Death of Queen Elizabeth.
“As a show of respect, shooting for ‘The Crown’ has been suspended today. Shooting will also be suspended on the day of Her Majesty the Queen’s funeral,” the producers of “The Crown” said in a statement to CNN on Friday.
Created by Peter Morgan, the Emmy-winning series revolves around the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Season 5, expected to premiere in November, focuses on the events of the late monarch’s reign in the 21st century.
“Harry Potter” alum Imelda Staunton will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth, who in previous seasons was played by Claire Foy (Seasons 1 and 2) and Olivia Colman (Seasons 3 and 4).
Both Foy and Colman won Primetime Emmy Awards for their performances.
The show is expected to end after season 6.
