‘Twilight’ Animated Series Being Shopped by Lionsgate Television

A “Twilight” animated series is being shopped by Lionsgate Television, Variety has confirmed.

Lionsgate’s vice chairman Michael Burns shared the news during a Q&A at the Morgan Stanley media conference on Tuesday: “We’re going to go out with the ‘Twilight’ series, an animated series, I think there’ll be a lot of interest in that.”

Back in April of last year, Variety reported that a “Twilight” TV series adaptation was in very early development at Lionsgate Television.

The animated series would be based on the Stephanie Meyers book series of the same name, which was previously adapted into a film franchise, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

There were originally four “Twilight” novels — “Twilight,” “New Moon,” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn” — published between 2005 and 2008. In 2015, Meyers released the book “Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined,” which gender-swapped the two main characters, Bella and Edward. Meyers then released “Midnight Sun” in 2020, which told the story of the first book from Edward’s perspective rather than Bella’s.

The film franchise, collectively known as “The Twilight Saga,” was comprised of five films that were released between 2008 and 2012. The five “Twilight” films grossed over $3 billion at the global box office in total.

Burns also revealed that Lionsgate is expanding the “John Wick” franchise with a new series, saying, “I think we’ll take one of our great action franchises starring Keanu Reeves, I think it’ll be a television series.”

Reeves portrayed the titular gun-fu action hero in four films, released between 2014 and 2023. The upcoming “John Wick” show comes on the heels of the prequel miniseries “The Continental,” which premiered on Peacock in September 2023.
