The sixth and final season of Netflix’s “The Crown” may not premiere until 2023 due to Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.

Peter Morgan, the creator of the program, reportedly intimated that current production might end “out of respect” for Queen Elizabeth II.

“The Crown is a love letter to [the Queen] and I’ve nothing to add, for now, just silence and respect,” Morgan wrote in a statement. “I expect we will stop filming out of respect too,” the filmmaker added.

The 96-year-old monarch passed away on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., hours after her doctors expressed alarm over her deteriorating condition.

The Queen was reportedly familiar with the program because of her participation in a much-discussed season one binge-watch with her son Prince Edward.

The sixth season of “The Crown,” which is now in production, has already been given the streamer’s approval; season five of the show is scheduled to premiere there in November.

The series was supposed to follow the Queen’s accession to the throne immediately after her 1947 wedding to Prince Philip.

Each season of “The Crown,” which is frequently referred to as one of Netflix’s most costly programs with production costs exceeding $100 million, has won an incredible 129 awards from 423 nominations.
