Alan Wake has celebrated its 12th anniversary and while we still didn’t get any hints at the sequel that was revealed during the last Game Awards, we did get the announcement that AMC is currently developing a new series based on the action-adventure game. While Alan Wake 2‘s taking a stronger horror direction, it’s unclear if the new series will stick to the format of the original.
Remedy Entertainment’s Creative Director Sam Lake shared his excitement on the announcement.
AMC, the wonderful, wonderful home for absolutely brilliant TV shows has bought the rights for Alan Wake. We have been collaborating on making a TV show happen. Nothing more to share at the moment, but we will certainly let you know when there is something to announce.Sam Lake
It seems there have been discussions on adapting the gaming franchise back in 2018 with Legion‘s Peter Calloway attached as its showrunner. Lake had an executive producer role at the time. It joins countless other video game adaptations that have been finding a new home with streaming services and broadcast networks, such as Fallout, Mass Effect, God of War, and Twisted Metal.
Interestingly enough, there’s no mention if Calloway is once again attached to the series but going by the announcement, it seems unlikely at the moment. They’ve teased more updates in the future, but it seems we’ll have to wait a little longer as they get the project going, as it is seemingly in early pre-production.
