A Plague Tale is the latest video game series in the frame for a TV adaptation, following the Halo TV series, which premieres next week; the upcoming Resident Evil Netflix show; and numerous others.
Currently in the early stages of production at Merlin Productions in France (as reported by French site Allocine via Eurogamer), the A Plague Tale TV series has 'Inglourious Basterds' and ‘Lucy’ assistant director Mathieu Turi on board as director.
Rights were set to be sold to a production company in the US, but a decision was made to have production remain in the game's setting of France, which is also home to Asobo Studio, the Bordeaux-based studio behind first game, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and upcoming sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem.
Casting details and a release date remain under wraps, as the A Plague Tale TV series has only recently entered production. However, Turi confirmed his involvement via Twitter, stating that he “can't wait to bring Amicia and Hugo's journey to the screen”. A Plague Tale: Requiem is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in 2022.
