Shocking scenes from the script for the upcoming season of the drama may start a new chapter for the streaming giant.

Season 6 of the show will feature a distraught Prince Charles after seeing the dead body of Diana, played by Elizabeth Debicki.
An on-set onlooker told The Sun that the cast members were visibly upset, with one saying: ‘They had Elizabeth climb into the coffin and play Diana. Viewers will see a French priest administer the last rites to Diana when her death is announced.
Prince Charles enters the room in a flood of tears. In hysteria, he notices that Diana is missing an earring. It is all he can focus on while overwhelmed with grief.
They added: ‘Princes William and Harry did not see their mother dead in a coffin nor should they be watching this. Nor should the British public.
Crew members are said to be concerned that screenwriters and producers have overrun Chase Highs
An onlooker said, “Everyone was very uncomfortable during the filming. It’s obscene and should be banned from broadcasting.”
Next season will show “sick” scenes of Princess Diana lying on a table with frantic paramedics trying to save her.

Netflix has insisted that the “exact moment” of the breakup will not appear in the controversial drama, which has recently been criticized for sensationalism and inaccuracy.
A friend of Diana said the show’s creators could face accusations of “insensitivity” to filming in Paris. Debbie Frank, Diana’s astrologer, said it would be “terrible” to see Princes William and Harry relive the moments leading up to their mother’s death.
Obviously, it’s terrible that Diana’s children will have to see that again. She said she was insensitive.
She added: ‘I feel Diana’s death and the accident was the biggest shock of our generation. It had such an enormous impact across the national psyche.
I think the makers of The Crown feel entitled to show that the scenes that lead up to her death are re-enacted and that they have a lot of impact. But relatives think otherwise.
Ken Wharf, Diana’s former bodyguard, told The Sun that William would find the scenes “disgusting” and Charles would be “appalled”.
A spokesman for the Prince of Wales declined to comment to The Sun.
