The Crown season six part one premieres on Netflix November 16. These first four episodes depict a relationship blossoming between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed before a fateful car journey has devastating consequences. In their first Summer as a divorced couple, Prince Charles and Princess Diana share very different holidays with their sons. Diana is being courted by the Fayeds in the South of France, giving the young Princes a taste of luxury yachts, video games and movie nights. Charles is sticking to tradition in Balmoral. The comparisons play out in the press, fuelled by a fervent paparazzi, and some of the Royal press team. As yacht life and the constant media scrutiny lose their appeal, Diana longs to return to see her boys, who are back in Balmoral. A diversion to Paris sees matters come to a head – against the backdrop of an intensified and aggressive media pursuit. After the news breaks of Diana and Dodi’s fatal car accident, a vast outpouring of public grief catches the Queen off-guard. With shockwaves resonating through the Palace, Al Fayed is also processing the loss of his cherished son. Hoping that the news will bring him and the Royal Family together in shared grief; he instead finds himself increasingly shunned.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan premieres on Starz December 1. This season continues to tell the origin story of fan-favorite character Kanan Stark, originally played by 50 Cent in the flagship series, delving further into his evolution from the devoted son of Raquel “Raq” Thomas into the eventual ferocious, amoral and pragmatic personality fans know from Power. Season three picks up where we left off, in Southside Jamaica Queens with the Thomas family in turmoil and reeling from the Mob’s coordinated attack on Raquel, Marvin and Lou-Lou. After her close call, Raquel is looking to make a fresh start, but Kanan doesn’t trust her or believe it when she says she’s done. Can she really be out of the game? As the trailer claims, the truth is a lie, and Kanan’s been burned before. The trailer also shows the return of Italian mob boss Stefano and introduces new adversaries “Snaps” and “Pop.”
