The Crown reclaims Netflix’s ‘crown’: how Queen Elizabeth’s death influenced trends on the streaming giant

The death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 has spurred viewers to turn their attention back to Netflix’s The Crown.

Season 1 of Peter Morgan’s drama returned to the Top 10 on Netflix, at No. 7 to be exact, the week of September 5-11, which is right around the time of Britain’s Queen’s death, with the trend continuing thereafter.

As for the week of September 12-18, which coincided with the period of national mourning in the UK, Netflix reported that the first season of The Crown climbed to #3 with 40.8 million hours of viewing, with season 2 also re-entering the Top 10 at #7 with 16.7 million hours of viewing.
