After the “Harry Potter” series has been confirmed, the vampire romance “Twilight” should also receive a series adaptation.

Rumors have been circulating for a long time that the Harry Potter franchise will be adapted into a series. The speculation recently became official: the popular fantasy series will be rebooted as a series, with each book having its own season. Now the next fantasy franchise is following suit with the vampire saga “Twilight”.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate Television, Lionsgate’s television division, is planning a serial version of Stephenie Meyer’s popular book series. Sinead Daly, who has already worked on a number of series, was hired as the scriptwriter for the project. These include The Get Down, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Raised by Wolves and The Walking Dead: World Beyond. In contrast to the “Harry Potter” series, it is not yet certain whether the “Twilight” series will be a reboot or take a different direction. According to sources at The Hollywood Reporter, Daly is set to make the decision.

“Twilight” author is said to be involved
The “Twilight” series thus joins Hollywood’s efforts to expand popular fantasy and young adult works such as “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hunger Games” with new films and series for a new audience . The five “Twilight” movies, starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, have grossed a total of $3.4 billion and are a big part of the hype surrounding the series. It remains to be seen whether the “Twilight” series will also be popular with viewers or whether the franchise was a product of its time.

The series project is still in its infancy, which is why neither a streaming service nor a start date has been set. Just like in the case of J.K. Rowling at the “Harry Potter” series author Stephenie Meyer is said to be involved in the series. The original actors, on the other hand, may not return. Stewart and Pattinson in particular had repeatedly expressed criticism of the fantasy series.
