The Crown is set to return to Netflix with its newest series, and filming for the next one has already begun. Hundreds of extras have descended upon a transformed Hull city centre over the past few days for filming of series 5 – and more filming is set to take place tonight.
The Netflix show gives fans a fictional insight into the Windsor-Mountbattens, and their seemingly scandalous lives (despite its arguable inaccuracies).
Now, gearing up for its fifth season, filming crews for the production have been spotted popping up across Yorkshire, with crews seen filming in both Wentworth Woodhouse and Bradford filming earlier this year.
Now producers have been shooting scenes across three days in Hull, East Yorkshire on Alfred Gelder Street and tonight (26th October) at Queen Victoria Square in the city centre.
Hull City Centre will see around 300 extras descend upon the area, which will be used for scenes set in the 1940s, which suggest ‘flashback’ scenes to Queen Elizabeth’s teenage years.
Images from the city centre transformation are incredible and really highlight the beauty of Hull’s traditional buildings.
Old-fashioned red buses have been brought in along with some vintage cars and vans to give the place a great aesthetic.
Along with the vehicles, signs for the subway, shop signs and various road signs have also been added to the city centre along with various wartime propaganda posters and banners solidifying the time period in which it is to be filmed.
Filming will commence between 4pm and 11pm in Hull City Centre. We can’t wait to see Hull on the popular streaming service.
