Sisi, iconic Empress and stunning beauty, enters a new era: A coming-of-age story full of intrigue and desires, large, opulent and, above all, a captivating and relevant series for a new generation.

She is an icon, Empress, legendary beauty: Sisi, Europe's first super star. Her love of freedom and the promise to give the Habsburg monarchy a gentler face have captivated Europe. Now, she will enter into a new era. It is a true story full of intrigue and desires. A carefree teenager, Sisi falls head over heels in love with a powerful and desirable man. But he has an unspoken dark and dangerous side: love that was not meant to be. Sisi has to choose and accepts the challenge. A coming-of-age story, the tomboy becomes a self-confident, modern woman. She will be able to make difficult decisions, to deal with loss and ultimately to fill an independent role as Empress. This is not a historical costume epic. The series has universal and timelessly relevant topics such as love, freedom, family, self-determination and duty – albeit, dressed in the glamor of 19th century court fashion. The wide appeal of this legendary freedom-loving beauty has long fascinated audiences. Now, it is her time to conquer a new generation's hearts and minds with a large, opulent and, above all, captivating and relevant series.
