What’s Coming to Streaming, Including ‘The Crown’ and ‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’

Fern Siegel

“The Crown” season five debuts on Netflix in November 2022 with Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II. She replaces Emmy winner Olivia Colman as head of the British royals. Other new cast members: Lesley Manville will play the older Princess Margaret, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Dominic West as Prince Charles and Jonny Lee Miller, will play former Prime Minister John Major. Also on the streamer, “Emily in Paris” premieres season two Dec. 22.

Here are additional deals and projects:

  • Disney+’s “The Mysterious Benedict Society” has been renewed for a second season. Based on the book series by Trenton Lee Stewart, the series follows four gifted orphans recruited by the eccentric Mr. Benedict. It stars Emmy winner Tony Hale in dual roles as twin brothers Mr. Benedict and Mr. Curtain, the series’ protagonist and antagonist. The second season begins production early next year.

  • “The Witcher” has received a third-season order, three months before the Henry Cavill-led fantasy series returns. Netflix is further building out “The Witcher” franchise by ordering a second anime feature and a new kids and family series. That complements its in-the-works prequel series “The Witcher: Blood Origin.” The first anime feature, “Nightmare of the Wolf,” premiered last month. “The Witcher” returns on Dec. 17.

  • Amazon Prime Video has greenlit “The Boys” spinoff, set at a superhero college. “Agent Carter” alums Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will be showrunners. The streamer describes the untitled spinoff as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual and moral boundaries to the test…”

  • “Dalgliesh,” based on P.D. James’ novels, gets its newest adaptation on Nov. 1, streaming on Acorn TV. The crime drama stars Bertie Carvel (“Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell”) as the detective-poet in three, two-part mysteries set in 1970s England. He solves unusual murders, ranging from a nursing student poisoned during a training demonstration to a recently resigned Tory MP whose throat was slashed in a London church.

  • “Good Timing With Jo Firestone,” directed by Julie Miller, streams October 15 on Peacock. Since March 2020, Firestone has taught a comedy workshop for 16 senior citizens, leading up to their first live stand-up show.

  • “Naked and Afraid of Love” got a second season renewal from discovery+. The series follows 16 naked strangers on an island in the Philippines. But without food, water or clothes readily available, these eight men and eight women are forced to depend on each other. Love triangles invariably ensue.

  • “The Other Two” got a third season order from HBO Max. The series stars Heléne Yorke and Drew Tarver. The show revolves around their pop star brother, Chase (Case Walker), who retires at 14. But his siblings are upstaged yet again by their mother (Molly Shannon), and her new daytime talk show.
