Amazon is developing a Blade Runner TV series

According to reports, Amazon has officially picked up a series based on the famous Blade Runner films for Prime Video. The project, which will be a limited live-action series, is dubbed Blade Runner 2099, implying that it would take set 50 years after Denis Villeneuve’s excellent Blade Runner 2049. Ridley Scott, the original Blade Runner director, will serve as an executive producer.

The firm hasn’t released any story specifics for Blade Runner 2099 yet, so we don’t know much about what to anticipate beyond the later timeframe. According to Amazon’s Vernon Sanders in a statement issued to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, the program will “uphold the intelligence, concepts, and spirit of its cinematic predecessors,” so I’m hoping the series will maintain the neo-noir sci-fi flavor from the two films.

We also have no idea when Blade Runner 2099 will be released. However, if you want to go further into the Blade Runner world before the new series’ arrival, there is also a Blade Runner anime, Blade Runner: Black Lotus, which aired in November.
