The Romanoffs: New teaser for Amazon series sets cast and premiere date


A new teaser trailer for The Romanoffs confirms the cast and premiere date for the Amazon series.

After two years of development, The Romanoffs will finally be making its streaming debut this fall. The series has been one of the most anticipated in recent history, with Amazon winning a massive bidding war to gain the rights. On top of that, it was rumored the studio handed creator Matthew Weiner a seventy million dollar budget to bring the series to life.

Unfortunately, the teaser trailer doesn’t offer a single glimpse of the new series. Yet, Amazon probably knows it doesn’t need to show what The Romanoffs will look like to entice viewers. The video is spent showcasing the impressive cast list to star in Weiner’s series.

In alphabetical order, the cast is composed of Aaron Eckhart, Adèle Anderson, Amanda Peet, Andrew Rannells, Annet Mahendru, Ben Miles, Cara Buono, Christina Hendricks, Clea Duvall, Corey Stoll, Diane Lane, Emily Rudd, Griffin Dunne, Hera Hilmar, Hugh Skinner, Inès Milab, Isabelle Huppert, Jack Huston, Janet Montgomery, Jay R. Ferguson, JJ Feild, John Slatter, Jon Tenney, Juan Pablo Castañeda, Kathryn Hahn, Kerry Bishé, Louise Bourgoin, Marthe Keller, Mary Kay Place, Mike Doyle, Noah Wyle, Paul Reiser, Ron Livingston, and Radha Mitchell.

The Romanoffs reunites creator Matthew Weiner with some of his Mad Men cast members. Considering how impressive this cast list is already, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Jon Hamm, January Jones, and some of the other leads join if the series gets a second season.

This will be an anthology series, so it’s quite possible the cast will rotate with every story. The Romanoffs will follow the lives of various people who believe they are descendants of a murdered Russian royal family. They will come from various continents and backgrounds with each new story centered in vastly different locations.

Amazon will debut the series on their Prime streaming service on October 12. It’s unclear if the network is planning on releasing a proper trailer for the first season or if they want to keep the air of mystery surrounding the show. Nevertheless, The Romanoffs might be the most ambitious anthology series yet.
