Royals lead everything new on Netflix this week. Yes, folks, The Crown season 5 is almost here, and it's looking sharp. Even though nobody would have confused Dominic West for a young Prince Charles, the actor from HBO's critically-acclaimed The Wire looks to be getting a lot of camera time in this season that's all about mess.

The Crown, which has dramatized the reign of Queen Elizabeth II — tracing her story from her 1947 wedding to more modern times, now turns its gaze to the 1990's, where divorce was all the rage. At the top of the chart, we have the divorce of Prince Charles (West) and Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki). Then, also expect the divorces of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and Princess Anne and Mark Phillips.

Need more? Already devoured the new movies and shows from this weekend? Netflix drops a new standup special from Neal Brennan this week, plus a documentary about the controversies of FIFA, timed for the 2022 World Cup. Then, Netflix delivers in multiple ways, with a holiday rom-com and a true crime documentary about Alabama's Stand Your Ground law. 

More true crime heat comes with a documentary about the ICU horrors that Netflix recently dramatized in The Good Nurse. Need more? Our guide to the 7 best new movies to watch this week also has picks from HBO Max and beyond.
