Amazon Reveals the Cast and Premiere Date for Its Star-Studded New Series ‘The Romanoffs’
Amazon is adding to its slate of original content with a star-studded new show, The Romanoffs. And during the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday, July 28, the streaming service revealed the series’ cast, premiere date, and first teaser trailer.
The eight-episode anthology, from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, will star Aaron Eckhart, Adele Anderson, Amanda Peet, Andrew Rannells, Annet Mahendru, Ben Miles, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, Diane Lane, Emily Rudd, Clea DuVall, Griffin Dunne, Hera Hilmar, Hugh Skinner, Ines Melab, Isabelle Huppert, Jack Huston, Janet Montgomery, Jay R. Ferguson, J.J. Feild, John Slattery, Juan Pablo Castaneda, Kathryn Hahn, Kerry Bishe, Louise Bourgoin, Marthe Keller, Mike Doyle, Noah Wyle, Ron Livingston, Paul Reiser, and Radha Mitchell. (We told you it was star-studded.)
The Romanoffs will tell several individual stories about people who believe they are the descendants of the former Russian royal family. “Every single episode — and there will be eight — has a different cast, a different story, and a different location,” Weiner told The Hollywood Reporter in March 2017. “The thing that holds them together is that all of the stories involve people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Romanov [family].”
The Romanovs were the last imperial dynasty to rule Russia. In 1918, Tsar Nicholas II and his family were murdered by revolutionaries. However, stories persisted around the fate of one of the Tsar’s daughters, Anastasia, who some believe escaped the assassination and took on a new identity.
The Romanoffs will debut on Amazon Prime October 12.
