6. Crown


For those of you into historical dramas, the Crown comes in at number six on the new web series list. Created by Peter Morgan, this Netflix original series covers the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It follows her ascension to the throne when she was 25 after the death of her father King George V. Every two seasons, the cast is swapped out to reflect the aging of the characters as the series spans the 1940s to modern times.

As you would expect, there are the usual pretense and formality you’d expect from a show about the royal family, but there’s plenty of out-of-character interpersonal drama to make it enjoyable to watch. Four seasons of the crown are currently available on Netflix and will come back for a fifth and a sixth season five is expected in 2022.

The Mandalorian is action-packed, the visuals are amazing, it’s well written with a great cast. Two seasons of the Mandalorian are available right now on Disney Plus and have been renewed for a third season. Still, in the pre-production phase, it could be a year or two before it’s released.
