The Crown: Season 4
Netflix Original Series
First it was Downton Abbey, and not it’s The Crown. It seems we just can’t get enough of historial, high-class English dramas. The Crown is back for it’s 4th season and it’s got a whole new cast. After season 3 covered 1964 through to 1977, season 4 will focus on the “next generation”. Well, at least they were then. You’re about to become acquainted with the Charles and Diana years. As if the previous seasons weren’t dramatic enough, we expect this season will take it up a notch.
The Crown is already streaming on Netflix and unlike other shows on this list, Netflix has already released all 10 episodes.
