The Replicants Come to Amazon: BLADE RUNNER 2099 TV Series Greenlit

Deadline:

The replicants are heading to the small-screen as Amazon Studios has put a live-action series set in the Blade Runner universe into development.

Ridley Scott, who directed the original 1982 Blade Runner movie, is executive producing the series, Blade Runner 2099, a follow-up to the feature film sequel Blade Runner 2049, which was released in 2017 and directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Silka Luisa, showrunner of Apple TV+’s upcoming Elisabeth Moss-fronted drama series Shining Girls, is writing and exec producing Blade Runner 2099, which comes from Scott Free Productions in association with Alcon Entertainment and Amazon Studios.

Look, Blade Runner 2049 was a miracle of a sequel. I’ve heard that the Adult Swim series, Blade Runner 2032 has been pretty good writing wise, if the animation left you a bit wanting.

Maybe this can work out after all.
