If you've been binge watching "The Crown" on Netflix like I have you may be bummed to find out that the shows creator Peter Morgan is pulling the plug on the series after five seasons. According to Sun news, fans looking forward to the series leading up to present day will find it ending around 2003. Which means the story line won't follow the affairs of Prince Andrew, or the adult lives of Meghan and Harry.

Most viewers had at least expected a sixth season of the show which is watched by more than 70 million people worldwide, but creator Peter Morgan says that will no longer be the case.

Morgan says he originally planned for "The Crown “ to run for six seasons, but as they started working out the stories for season five it became clear that this was the perfect place to stop.

The Royal family is sure to be thrilled by the news. 

As the Windsors went to war with  Netflix over season four, which covers the affair of Prince Charles, with Camilla while married to Princess Diana.

Netflix has also confirmed another changing of the guard as season four, which covers the Royal Family from 1977 to 1990, comes to a close later this year. Olivia Coleman will step down from her role as the Queen 

and Imelda Staunton will be taking over the role of the queen for the fifth and what will now be the final season.
