From Peter Morgan, the historical drama chronicles the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. The cast includes Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Vanessa Kirby, and John Lithgow.
Netflix is notorious for keeping its ratings information under wraps. However, according to Symphony Advanced Media, the debut numbers for The Crown were fairly low. The original series reportedly brought in only 496,000 viewers over its opening weekend, placing it below season five of Longmire but higher than season two of Bloodline in terms of ratings.
Nevertheless, Netflix has already ordered a second season of the UK drama.
