Netflix has suspended filming of the new season of “The Crown.”
Netflix has temporarily suspended filming on the sixth season of the series “The Crown” following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the streaming platform announced Friday.
Season six is currently filming.
“As a mark of respect, filming of ‘The Crown’ series has been suspended today,” a Netflix spokesperson told Agence France-Presse (AFP).
“Filming will also be suspended on the day of the funeral” of Queen Elizabeth II, the same source added.
This week, many of the heads of the streaming platform are attending the Toronto International Film Festival.
The multi-time Emmy-winning series, the US television equivalent of the Oscars, premiered its first season with Elizabeth II’s marriage to Prince Philip in 1947.
Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland after more than 70 years of the longest reign in UK history.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born on April 21, 1926, in London and became Queen of England in 1952 at the age of 25 following the death of her father, George VI, who came to reign when his brother abdicated.
After the monarch’s death, her first-born son assumed the duties of king at the age of 73 as Charles III.
