Calling All Fans Of ‘The Crown’, There’s A New Royal Show Coming

Complete with a 'Mad Men' reunion

While we patiently wait for the return of The Crown, another royal show has been announced, turning away from the British royal family and instead to the last ruling family of Russia, The Romanoffs. 

Made by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, The Romanoffs traces eight separate people who believe they are descendants of the Russian royal family. 
Plus, Weiner tapped two Mad Men favourites, Christina Hendricks and John Slattery, who played Joan and Roger, to join the cast.

“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 in a March interview about the new series.

“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.”

The Romanoffs will be released on Friday 12th October 2018 exclusively on Amazon Prime.
