Netflix defends 'The Crown' after former PM calls Season 5 scenes "nonsense"

Netflix was quick to defend its show 'The Crown' amid criticism of the upcoming Season 5.

Former British PM John Major called the show's depiction of his time in office as “malicious nonsense”.

However, Netflix defended the show by calling it “fictional dramatization”.

The new series is scheduled to release on Netflix on November 9.

It is expected to show Charles cutting short his holiday with Diana to host a secret meeting with former PM Sir John.

In a statement, Sir John described the scenes including his character “a barrel-load of nonsense" peddled to provide "false dramatic impact.”

The upcoming Season 5 will also center around the Queen approaching the 40th anniversary of her accession.

The estimated production budget of 'The Crown' was reported to be $260 million.

The show’s budget makes it one of the most expensive television series ever.
