Twilight series confirmed to get the reboot treatment with television show in the works

Twilight series confirmed to get the reboot treatment with television show in the works

The family of glittering vampires are set to make a triumphant return 11 years after the final movie premiered.

Twilight is the latest teen mega-hit movie to get the reboot treatment, joining the likes of Harry Potter and nearly every Disney cartoon film.

The iconic vampire franchise, which ended its series 11 years ago, will be brought back from the dead and turned into a TV show, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed.

The television series will be based on the same books by Stephanie Meyers as the films were.

Variety reports that no writer or a network/streaming service has been attached to the project as of yet.

Meyers is expected to be involved in the television series but has so far provided no comment.

However, Variety reports that Wyck Godfrey and Erik Feig are attached to the project as the upcoming TV show's executive producers.

Feig is the former co-president of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, with the television reboot in its very early development stages at Lionsgate's TV arm.

Godfrey runs Temple Hill production company, which produced the five Twilight films fans already know and love.

Or love to hate.

Either way, there is no escaping that The Twilight Saga, which was made up of five films and was released between 2008 and 2012, had the world picking between Team Edward and Team Jacob for years.

The five films grossed more than USD$3 billion at the global box office, a tidy sum for what originated as a dream the author had on June 2, 2003.

The dream was about a human girl and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood.

That dream wound up becoming chapter 13 of the first book.

The film series also made its main cast members Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner household names.

Coincidentally, Robert Pattinson also played a role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire right before his big break with Twilight.

Both were an iconic collection of films popular with kids and pre-teens, and both will cop the same reboot treatment with Warner Bros. Discovery recently revealing they intend to turn the Harry Potter books into a decade-long television extravaganza. Each season will focus on one book in the series, which boasted seven novels in total.

So, there you have it.

More smash-hit movies to turn into long-form television.

Now we have to ask the question: Is Hollywood really out of fresh ideas?
