SCI-FI TV ROUND UP
First, some good news: Disney is developing a new Star Wars liveaction series to debut in 2019. The bad: it’ll air exclusively on Disney’s own streaming service, meaning you’ll have to take out yet another subscription.
And because it’s the month for bringing massive franchises to TV streaming services, Amazon has greenlit a mega-budget series set in Middle-earth. It’ll be set before the events of The Lord Of The Rings – so that means either pre-Hobbit, or between The Hobbit and LOTR. Could this be Silmarillion: The Series?
Get Out director Jordan Peele is working on a Twilight Zone reboot for CBS All Access, the home of Star Trek: Discovery.
Red Dwarf creator Doug Naylor says chances of series XIII are “high to certain”, with Craig Charles adding, “We’d like to do as many as we possibly could.” A stage show is also on the cards.
