The Netflix original series follows the British royal family beginning in 1947, with each season covering a memorable period in history and the star-studded cast changing every two seasons to reflect the passage of time.

With storylines inspired by real events — including Queen Elizabeth's ascension to the throne and the beginnings of Princess Diana's relationship with then-Prince CharlesThe Crown delves behind the scenes of historical moments that continue to be spoken about to this day.

As the award-winning show nears its end with the premiere of season 6, which will give a fictionalized overview of the aftermath of Diana's divorce from Charles and the media coverage that ensued, there are only a handful of episodes left. Still, The Crown's impending finale doesn't mean there aren't similar shows to tune into.

From Italian royalty to aristocratic family dynamics, here are 13 titles to watch next (and where to stream them) if you're looking for shows like The Crown.

Though The Crown mainly focuses on the British royal family and their inner workings, Downton Abbey explores the relationship between the wealthy Crawley family and their domestic servants in the early 20th century, beginning with the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. The acclaimed series includes a strong ensemble cast, and between six seasons, several holiday specials and two films, there’s plenty to dive into.

The Last Czars is a six-part docudrama that follows the reign of Nicholas II from his accession to the throne to his family’s execution by the Bolsheviks in 1918. The Crown gave a brief flashback to the Romanov family in season 5, which inspired Prince Philip to look further into his ancestry.

In real life, the late royal was a blood relative on his mother and father’s side to the Romanovs and gave a DNA sample to confirm the found remains were that of the family.

The Great

The Great, starring Elle Fanning as Queen Catherine II of Russia, is a satirical take on history. While The Crown covers the longest reign of any British monarch, this Hulu original offers a fictionalized spin on the longest-reigning Russian female ruler as she plots to overthrow her husband, Peter III (Nicholas Hoult). Though it’s loose regarding historical accuracy, the Emmy-nominated series is a lighter watch than other dramas.

For a more straightforward take on the legacy of Catherine the Great, turn to the miniseries with the same name as the Russian ruler, starring Helen Mirren. As viewers see in The Crown with Queen Elizabeth II, Catherine experienced her share of hurdles during her time as ruler. Fans of Stranger Things will recognize Joseph Quinn, who portrays Catherine’s son Paul.
