Following the sweeping success of the live-action adaptation of the video game franchise Fallout, Prime Video has made the determination to move ahead with another adaptation of a popular franchise. As part of its 2024 Upfront presentation, Amazon MGM Studios announced a new streaming series set within the Tomb Raider universe. The series, which had been in development for over a year, will be written and produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

According to trade reports, the studio will now begin the search for their Lara Croft who has been previously portrayed in live-action by Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander.

If I could tell my teenage self this was happening I think she’d explode. Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to be bringing it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara Croft means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all.

Fans and newcomers can look forward to exhilarating adventures that honor the legacy of this iconic character.

Amazon is also developing a live-action Tomb Raider film and working with Crystal Dynamics on at least one more game in the franchise. “Amazon MGM Studios and Amazon Games are incredible collaborators with a massive reach across the globe enabling us to expand our Tomb Raider franchise with multiple new adventures and a shared passion for creating impactful, entertaining, emotional experiences for players and viewers throughout every facet of this universe,” expressed Scot Amos, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
