The upcoming sixth and final season of Netflix’s “The Crown” is split across two parts with the four-episode ‘Volume One’ arriving on November 16th whilst the six-episode ‘Volume Two’ comes a month later on December 14th.

As previously reported, the first volume will deal with the death of Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki). Recently however, The Daily Mail reported that the second volume will include a scene where “Diana’s ghost” will speak to Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) after her death.

That decision to use an apparent post-death Diana appearance has already led to outrage online, so much so that series creator Peter Morgan has spoken with Variety to set things straight:

“I never imagined it as Diana’s ‘ghost’ in the traditional sense. It was her continuing to live vividly in the minds of those she has left behind. Diana was unique, and I suppose that’s what inspired me to find a unique way of representing her. She deserved special treatment narratively.”

Morgan also spoke to Collider about potential spin-offs, saying he has an idea for a potential prequel series at some point down the line, assuming certain circumstances come together. He adds: “If I were to go back into The Crown, it would definitely be to go back in time.”

Netflix chief Ted Sarandos is ready to back him, saying: “I have absolute faith in Peter. And if he believes there are stories to be told there, we definitely would explore it.”
