A ‘TWILIGHT’ reboot is in the works as a TV series!

The Hollywood Reporter claims that a series version of author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling book series is in early development via Lionsgate Television.

Author Meyer is expected to be involved in the television adaptation of the hit franchise, source claims.

As reported, Lionsgate has been negotiating with multiple bidders to potentially spin off its studio business and premium cable network Starz by the end of September 2023.

The Twilight saga, which stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, collectively grossed more than $3.4 billion worldwide.  

In 2017, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told Wall Street that “there are a lot more stories to be told, and we’re ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories,” in reference to both Twilight and The Hunger Games franchises.

The news of the Twilight series in the works comes days after HBO Max confirmed that it was in the early development of a Harry Potter television series adaptation with plans for a decade-long run of J.K. Rowling’s book series with the controversial author attached as an executive producer.

Lionsgate TV recently announced plans to revive Spartacus with a sequel series from creator Steven S. DeKnight.
