Fans of the Twilight book series and film franchise have reason to get excited as a new TV project is reportedly in the works. Lionsgate Television is currently in the early stages of developing a Twilight TV series.
At this stage, the project is still in its infancy and does not have a network or writer attached. Lionsgate, which holds the rights to the franchise, plans to lead the development process before pitching the project to potential buyers.
While there is no timeline for when the Twilight series will be taken to market, sources say that Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight books, is expected to be involved in the project.
The Twilight film franchise, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, grossed over $3 billion at the box office with five films released between 2008 and 2012. The series follows the story of Bella Swan, a high school student who falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen, and the challenges they face as they navigate their relationship in a world of werewolves and other supernatural creatures.
The news of a potential Twilight TV series comes at a time when nostalgia for the original franchise is high, and reboots and revivals are all the rage in Hollywood. The prospect of revisiting the world of Twilight in a new format is sure to excite fans who have been eagerly awaiting more content from the beloved franchise.
As Lionsgate continues to work on the development of the Twilight TV series, fans can only hope that the project will come to fruition sooner rather than later. With Stephenie Meyer’s involvement and the potential for new storylines and characters, the Twilight universe has the potential to be expanded in exciting and unexpected ways on the small screen.
