If you’re in the market for a Shondaland fix, look no further than Netflix next year as Shonda Rhimes‘ highly-anticipated series Inventing Anna sets its 2022 premiere. Along with setting the tentative premiere date, Netflix has also unveiled several first look photos at star Julia Garner (Ozark) in her role as Anna Delvey.

Written by creator and showrunner Rhimes with Matt Byrne, Jess Brownell, Abby Ajayi, and Nick Nardini, Inventing Anna is based on Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article, “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People,” chronicling the rise and eventual fall of the elite figure.

In the series, a journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey, an Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene, along with their money. As the story unfolds though, the show will ponder, is Anna New York’s biggest con woman, or is she the portrait of the new American dream?
