Looks like there’s a Twilight TV series on the way

It’s happening!

It’s reported that the popular Twilight Saga will be coming to our screens once again but as a TV series.

A source told The Hollywood Reporter that a series of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling books is in early development with Lionsgate Television.

Sinead Daly is rumoured to be writing the script for the new Twilight adaptation.

Her credits include Tell Me Lies, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Raised by Wolves and Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

They’re unsure whether they’re going to remake the books into a series or go about it in a slightly different approach.

The TV series does not yet have a network or platform because allegedly they’re shopping around for the best package.

There is no timeline set in place for the new series just yet.

According to The Hollywood Reporter author Meyer is expected to be involved in the television adaptation.

They said Wyck Godfrey and former Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig bought the rights to the Twilight book series after Paramount Pictures passed.

They are both set to take on producing roles for the series.

Godfrey’s Temple Hill banner produced all five of the Twilight movies.

The film franchise starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, collectively grossed more than $3.4 billion worldwide.

Twilight is a huge part of Lionsgate’s library.

In 2017, five years after Breaking Dawn: Part 2, Lionsgate CEO told Wall Street that: “There are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready”.

This was in reference to both Twilight and The Hunger Games franchises.

HBO Max confirmed a Harry Potter TV series will get underway and author JK Rowling will come onboard as an exceutive producer.

She said: “Max’s commitment to preserving the integrity of my books is important to me, and I’m looking forward to being part of this new adaptation.”

The series will be produced by Warner Bros Television but there is no release date just yet.
