Season 1 of “The Crown,” the streaming company’s award-winning series about the Queen’s reign over decades, entered Netflix’s top 10 this week, the company revealed on Tuesday.
The series, which stars Claire Foy and Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth, logged 17.6 million hours viewed, according to the company. That made it the seventh-most watched English-language show on Netflix last week, just ahead of the most recent season of “Stranger Things.”
“As a mark of respect, filming on ‘The Crown’ was suspended today,” producers for the series said in a statement to CNN Friday. “Filming will also be suspended on the day of Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral.”
The next season of the series is set to premiere in November. “Harry Potter” star Imelda Staunton will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth.
The producers have said the series will conclude after season 6.
