Following this year’s Underworld: Blood Wars, we’re now getting word that the franchise is making its way to the small screen.
As per Deadline, Underworld creator Len Wiseman is developing a TV series with Sony Television through his Sketch Films production company. Wiseman himself told the outlet, “The series will be a pretty big departure from the films. I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character.”
At this early stage, the show has yet to find a home, although Wiseman is hoping that the series can land on a premium cable channel or an on-demand digital service.
Headlined by Kate Beckinsale, the Underworld franchise began way back in 2003. As Beckinsale’s Selene found herself caught in the crossfire of a never-ending war between vampires and werewolves, the series expanded to include 2006’s Underworld: Evolution, 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, 2012’s Underworld: Awakening, and this year’s Underworld: Blood Wars. Wiseman served as director on the first two entries, while he was then a producer on the following three.
As ever, expect more on this as we get it.
