    Default The Romanoffs (New Matthew Weiner Series)

    Everything We Know So Far About the New TV Show, The Romanoffs

    The mini-series from Mad Men's Matthew Weiner is about the modern descendants of the Romanov family.

    Nearly two years after America said goodbye to Don, Peggy, Roger and the rest of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce crew, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is finally ready to reveal his next project: The Romanoffs, an anthology series centered around people who believe themselves to be the modern-day descendants of the Romanov 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. "The thing that holds them together is that all of the stories involve people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Romanov [family]."
    Of course, the Romanov family was the last dynasty to rule Russia from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917. In July of 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, Tsarina Alexandra and their five children and remaining loyal servants were executed, a slaughter that has, over the years, inspired conspiracy theories, including the myth that Nicholas and Alexandra's daughter Anastasia survived the attack. Weiner's unconventional spelling of the Russian surname reportedly reflects both the pronunciation and how it was spelled up until recently.
    "We're at a place in our history where people are looking for a close connection to their roots, and for some kind of revelation about who they are," Weiner explained to Variety. "There's great debate about who is a Romanoff and what happened to the Romanoffs. The story for me is that we're all questioning who we are and who we say we are."
    There's no date set for the show, but Weiner hopes that the it will debut on Amazon in the spring of 2018. And as for whether we'll see Weiner teaming up Mad Men stars like Jon Hamm or Elizabeth Moss once again, he said, "I definitely would not rule that out."
