Next summer marks a full century since the execution of the Romanov family, and in honor of this epochal anniversary, Netflix has commissioned a docuseries about the last imperial dynasty to rule Russia called The Last Czars.

But before you start imagining a Russian version of The Crown, this six-episode project will be a combination of documentary and reenactment, not a scripted drama. According to Deadline, which broke the news of the project, the show will follow "the fall of the Russian Imperial Romanov family, run by Tsar Nicholas II, who were killed in 1918 following the February Revolution."

It's expected to drop sometime in 2018.

Luckily for Anastasia-obsessives, this isn't the only project centering on Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their five children in the works right now.

Mad Men's Matthew Weiner has a miniseries due out on Amazon in April of 2018 about people who believe themselves to be the modern descendants of the Romanov family.Thus far, Diane Lane, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, and John Slattery have signed on for that show, among others.
