Plot Synopsis

THE LAST CZARS is a one-hour drama series that centers on the fall of the Russian Imperial Romanov family, run by Tsar Nicholas II, who were killed in 1918 following the February Revolution. The series opens with Czar Nicholas II taking the Russian throne in 1894, while rejecting modern ideas to embrace a pure autocracy. Tragedy marks his coronation day. Then in the early 1900s, Russia's disastrous war against Japan prompts civil unrest. When Prince Alexei is diagnosed with hemophilia, Siberian mystic Rasputin steps in -- and his influence grows. The Romanovs retreat into a bubble of luxury while the czar's forces brutally suppress protests by a starving populace. Then, during World War I, World War I Nicholas heads to the front, while outrage grows back home over high casualties and about Alexandra and Rasputin's political intrigues. Rasputin is gone, but Nicholas continues his catastrophic policies in war and at home. Deprivation pushes the population from unrest to revolution. The czar abdicates, and civil war erupts. As pro-royalist forces close in on the house where the Romanovs are imprisoned, the family's fate is sealed. Netflix premiered the entire six-episode series on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
