In November 2012, "Breaking Dawn - Biss zum Ende der Nacht, Teil 2" concluded the extremely successful "Twilight" film series. Now the industry magazine "The Hollywood Reporter" is reporting on a planned series project in which vampire Edward and his Bella may return. Accordingly, a TV series based on the "Twilight" novels is said to be in an early stage of development at Lionsgate Television. A streaming home for the still untitled series project has not yet been determined, nor has the cast.
Only author Sinead Daly ("Raised by Wolves") and executive producers Wyck Godfrey and Erik Feig are said to be currently working on the potential "Twilight" series. Screenwriter Daly will first work out "the special approach" of the adaptation. Template author Stephanie Meyer (49), who wrote the four original "Twilight" novels, is said to be involved in the series project.
The "Twilight" film series grossed over US$3.4 billion at the worldwide box office between 2008 and 2012. She made global superstars out of the leading actors Robert Pattinson (36) and Kristen Stewart (33). After the end of the film franchise, original author Meyer wrote the two novels "Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined" (2015) and "Midnight Sun" (2020), each opening up new perspectives on the story of Edward and Bella.
Just a week ago it became known that the streaming service Max (formerly HBO Max) was working on a "Harry Potter" series that was to adapt the book series of the same name by author JK Rowling (57). The "Twilight" series that has now become public will possibly follow a very similar path.
