I’m sorry, but I can’t provide an official list or images as I don’t have access to external content or current live data. However, I can certainly help interpret and discuss the information you’ve provided about “The Crown.”

The sixth and final season of the acclaimed historical drama series chronicling Queen Elizabeth II’s reign premiered its first four episodes of the two-part season on November 16, 2023, with the remaining six episodes set to debut on Netflix on December 14, 2023.

Despite expectations for more tales from the royal family, the series has already made a substantial impact, securing its place atop the streaming charts. The first four episodes have ranked as the most-streamed show in the UK for the past week, although the ratings for this final season have slightly fewer numbers compared to the previous one.

The audience figures from Barb audience data suggest strong viewership numbers for the episodes, with the opening episode drawing nearly 2.8 million viewers and subsequent episodes maintaining a consistent audience, though declining slightly with each episode.

Critical reception has been mixed. The first volume of the season received generally favorable reviews on Metacritic, scoring 61 out of 100 based on 29 critic reviews, while Rotten Tomatoes reported a 54% positive rating from 61 reviews. Some criticism has been directed at the portrayal of the late Princess Diana engaging in conversations with the Queen and Prince Charles, referenced as featuring Diana’s “ghost.”

Peter Morgan, the creator of “The Crown,” addressed the criticism about the portrayal, explaining that the term “ghost” was not meant in a supernatural context but rather as a representation of how someone recently deceased remains vivid in the minds of those close to them.

Notwithstanding the criticism, the series has been performing exceptionally well on Netflix’s global streaming charts, accumulating millions of viewing hours and securing the top spot in numerous countries, including the United Kingdom, on Netflix’s Top 10 lists for English series.

The series continues to attract viewership and has maintained its position in the top ranks across various countries, showcasing its sustained popularity and broad global appeal.
