“The Crown” Season 6 has arrived, marking a sendoff for one of the most prestigious – and expensive – shows in Netflix history. The drama series has chronicled the reign of Queen Elizabeth II since her ascent in 1947, with the show rebooting its cast every two seasons to reflect the aging characters. Claire Foy’s Queen Elizabeth in Season 1 and 2 gave way to Olivia Colman’s in Season 3 and 4, which finally gave way to Imelda Staunton’s in these final two seasons.
“The Crown” Season 6 is dropping on Netflix in two halves and covers the tragic final weeks of Princess Diana’s life as it traverses the late 1990s into the early 2000s.
