The new series will introduce the show’s third cast, led by Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II with Jonathan Pryce, Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki as Prince Philip, King Charles and Princess Diana, respectively.
Season five picks up in the early 1990s, with the two-minute trailer beginning with a news report about a “Royal Family in crisis”.
Among the storylines hinted at in the new trailer include the 1992 fire at Windsor Castle, which left 115 rooms destroyed, and the exploration of the relationship between the future King and Queen, Charles and Camilla.
The aftermath of Diana’s explosive Panorama interview with Martin Bashir is also featured in the new trailer, with Elizabeth saying in character: “I won’t go quietly… I’ll battle till the end.”
Meanwhile, the clip includes appearances from Lesley Manville and Jonny Lee Miller as Princess Margaret and former prime minister Sir John Major, respectively.
As with the previous iteration of The Crown, the new series has already come under fire due to its fictionalised version of real events.
The first four seasons of The Crown are available to stream on Netflix now, with the fifth series debuting on Wednesday 9 November.
