We’ve already gotten a look at Amazon’s upcoming new anthology series The Romanoffs in a teaser trailer which debuted two weeks ago. Today Amazon’s released the first small batch of photos from the upcoming series along with episode descriptions and cast info.

The Romanoffs marks Amazon’s first anthology series to be released like a conventional network series, with one new episode per week. Amazon’s set a Friday, October 12, 2018 premiere date and will kick off the season with the release of two episodes. The series comes from nine-time Emmy Award winner Matthew Weiner (Mad Men) who writes, directs, and executive produces.

The Plot: The Romanoffs features eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family. Set in seven countries around the globe, The Romanoffs was shot on location in three continents collaborating with local productions and creative talent across Europe, the Americas, and the Far East. Each story takes place in a new location with a new cast.
