The show earned the top spot after its fourth season debuted just Sunday. It’s not surprising, given that “The Crown” has been one of Netflix’s most popular shows since its debut in 2016. And this season focuses on particularly juicy topics, including the budding relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
“The Crown” unseated “The Queen’s Gambit” from the No. 1 spot. “The Queen’s Gambit,” which focuses on a woman in the 1960s who rises through the international rankings of chess players, had been in first place for three weeks in a row but fell to No. 2.
The remaining top nine include three other Netflix Originals: “Trial 4,” “Dash & Lily” and “The Great British Baking Show.” The latter has been in the top 10 for weeks, primarily because it debuts a new episode each week, an uncommon release schedule for Netflix shows.
