Netflix series The Crown is proving to be one of the most successful and most “binge-watched” series of all time. The series is intended to last 60 episodes over six seasons, with 10 one-hour episodes per season, covering Elizabeth’s life from her younger years to her reign, and with new actors being cast every two seasons.
