Ridley Scott Confirms Blade Runner Live-Action TV Series

This year’s San Diego Comic-Con brought a major surprise as well. Ridley Scott, the director of Blade Runner and Alien, confirmed to film critic Chris Hardwick that his sci-fi classic was getting a live action TV series on Amazon Prime in 2018. What does this mean for video game adaptations?

The “blade runner series” is a live-action TV series from Ridley Scott. It’s about the events that lead to LAPD Officer Rick Deckard being brought in for questioning on suspicion of murder.

Ridley Scott confirmed plans for a TV program based on his 1982 sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner by telling the BBC this week that a pilot has already been written. There are no information on what the tale will be or whether there will be any significant appearances, but the program should be a fun addition to Disney’s live-action Alien series, which was announced in 2020. The program will air on FX TV, but it’s unclear where the Blade Runner franchise will go.

“We’ve already written the pilot for Blade Runner… and now we’ve written the pilot for Alien.”

“We’ve already written the Blade Runner pilot and the bible,” Scott said. “So, we’re already showing the first 10 hours of Blade Runner as a TV program.”

The initial reports of a Blade Runner TV series came from Giant Freakin Robot (GFR), which claimed that one was in the works early this year. Another Blade Runner project, Black Lotus, an animated series that debuted on Crunchyroll on November 14, was mentioned.

The following is an excerpt from GFR’s initial report:

[…] A live-action Blade Runner series is being developed and will be sold to a streaming service. Blade Runner: Black Lotus, an animated series, is due to air later this year, but it seems that this new live-action series will be a stand-alone effort. We’re thinking that the creators of this new live-action series would be thrilled if it could air on Netflix or HBO Max. Because Warner Bros. was the previous film’s distributor in the United States, HBO Max makes the most sense. Adult Swim, Warner Bros.’ adult animation division, will also release the animated series.

Although Blade Runner 2049 was not directed by Ridley Scott, it featured the return of Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard and an astonishing virtual reconstruction of Sean Young’s Rachael character. Last year, Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the sequel, told Empire that he was excited to return to the property.

“The Blade Runner universe is such an amazing one,” Villeneuve stated. “The word’sequel’ causes me problems. Original storylines, in my opinion, are required in film. I may, however, respond yes if you ask me whether I’d want to return to this world in a different manner. It would have to be its own project. Something that isn’t tied to the previous two films. A futuristic detective noir tale… I dream about it occasionally in the middle of the night.”
