By Crom, news has surfaced from the lands of Cimmeria that Conan The Barbarian is set to have its own TV Series making its way to Netflix.
The deal betwixt Netflix and Conan Properties International, owned by Malmberg’s Cabinet Entertainment, has the ability to render both live-action and animated TVseries and films using Conan as depicted in Robert E. Howard’s novels.
A search is currently underway for a writer/showrunner to pen the Conan adaptation and director to helm the project.
It is interesting, seeing Marvel has since re-acquired the rights to publish comics based on the Swords-and-Sorcery vagabond, which gave speculation to Conan’s on-screen future. But alas, Netflix sounds like the perfect fit, given the success of similar-themed The Witcher, which has both a new season and animation in the works.
And this also makes no mention of the once-planned Conan sequel to the Conan The Barbarian (1982) and Conan The Destroyer (1984) movies. The aforementioned was set to see Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as the Barbarian later down the chronological timeline as a king of a nation at the brink of war.
More as things develop.
