Backend doesn’t matter in your case. I recommend to apply 'Colors from color cycle’ method in the SO answer.
The idea is that, first, you get a list of colors from your color cycle before making a pdf page. Then you plot your data with color keyword, like plot(x, y, color=color_list_from_colorcycle[i]) with an index number ‘i’ incremented after each plot, save a pdf page, reset the index ‘i’ to zero, repeat the procedure whatever times you want.
It’s not elegant at all but I’m sure it solves the problem.

If first ten colors in your color cycle is enough for you, then ‘CN notation’ method is also applicable. (matplotlib 2 is required for this method)
