After hearing the news that Imelda Staunton would take over from Olivia Colman and Claire Foy in Netflix's hit series 'The Crown' - fans will now be gutted to hear that when Staunton takes the reins for season 5, that'll be the last ever season of the show!

Show producers made the announcement on Twitter saying the Harry Potter actress would play Queen Elizabeth in the "fifth and final season."

"I have loved watching The Crown from the very start. 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," Staunton said.

"I am genuinely honoured to be joining such an exceptional creative team and to be taking The Crown to its conclusion."

Fans can still watch the first 3 seasons on Netflix right now, but there are no release dates known for seasons 4 and 5.
