A “Mad Men” reunion of sorts is in the works at Amazon.
Christina Hendricks and John Slattery will reunite with “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner as cast members of Weiner’s upcoming Amazon anthology series “The Romanoffs,” Variety has learned.
The new series will consist of eight hourlong episodes, each of which will tell a standalone story with no recurring plot elements or actors. Each episode will tell the stories of people in contemporary times who believe they are descendants of the imperial family that ruled Russia from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917. In addition to Hendricks and Slattery, the series has also cast Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert, “Boardwalk Empire” alum Jack Huston, “Togetherness” alum Amanda Peet, and Golden Globe nominee Marthe Keller.
The castings of Slattery and Hendricks come just over 10 years after the series premiere of “Mad Men,” which launched on AMC on July 19, 2007. The series would go on to garner 116 Emmy nominations
