Add Endpoint to get all Credits for a TV Show, no matter the Season.

Reported by William Bradley | October 17th, 2017 @ 09:46 PM | in Icebox

Currently, to get all Main Credits, you have to iterate each Season to find each credit, for shows that have cast and crew members come and go.
I would like to get all the main cast members for shows like Doctor Who, where the main cast changes every couple of seasons.
Perhaps if there was an Array property of Seasons in the Credit Object, it would be an easier way of fetching this information.

Such as:
{ "cast": [ { "character": "The Doctor", "credit_id": "597b356a925141364a0106fb", "gender": 1, "id": 66431, "name": "Jodie Whittaker", "order": 500, "profile_path": "/zC5Dnp8Akt3m8nCWVc3Yjy5xtyV.jpg", "seasons": [ 11 ] }, { "character": "The Doctor", "credit_id": "527f9b0c19c29514e908704f", "gender": 2, "id": 12982, "name": "Peter Capaldi", "order": 499, "profile_path": "/elySeUbCxDkBq83GwinPnfcLs5t.jpg", "seasons": [ 8, 9, 10 ] }, ... ] }

That would help provide this useful information in an efficient manner, and means that Services like Trakt.TV, would have a better idea of the Actors, as you see here: https://trakt.tv/shows/doctor-who-2005

Currently on Trakt.TV, if you look up Peter Capaldi, there is no reference to his actual credit on the Show (Although that is probably an implementation flaw), Having access to this information without looking up seasons would be more effective.
