Twihards, it’s time to pull out those graphic tees and other memorabilia, because the sun is rising again on the Twilight saga.
The extremely popular teen vampire books are being adapted into a television series, per our sister site The Hollywood Reporter.
The project is in the early stages of development and not much is known about the specific details, but Sinead Daly (Tell Me Lies, The Walking Dead: World Beyond) has been chosen to write the script. Twilight author Stephanie Meyer is expected to be involved in the show’s development as well, sources tell THR.
Lionsgate Television will produce the adaptation, which does not yet have a network/outlet attached.
Twilight was previously adapted into a movie franchise, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
