What is the Twilight TV series release date? It has been just over a decade since one of the biggest YA juggernauts in history came to a halt when the final Twilight movie arrived in cinemas. Now, though, we might be heading back to the sparkly-skinned world of the Cullens courtesy of a brand new TV series. A Twilight reboot? Noughties nostalgia is real.
Lionsgate is at work adapting young adult behemoth Twilight into what it hopes will be one of the best fantasy series ever made, hot on the heels of the announcement of the Harry Potter TV series. Sinead Daly, who has writing credits on Blue Bloods and The Walking Dead: World Beyond, has been tapped to write the script.
We’ve taken a trip back to Forks to see what we can work out about the Twilight TV series release date. There will almost certainly be vampires, and there will almost certainly be werewolves. But beyond that, only the Volturi clan knows what we can expect from these blood-sucking characters when their best TV series arrives. But now is a good time to watch the Twilight movies in order to prepare yourself.
Twilight TV series release date speculation
We expect that the Twilight TV series could arrive in 2026, as the series is still in the early stages of development. So stay tuned and keep those fangs sharp for now!
The news emerged on April 19, 2023, that Lionsgate Television is working on a Twilight TV series. As far as we know, the series is in an early stage of development and all involved are trying to hammer out the details of what form it will take.
With that in mind, we’re likely to be a few years away from any sort of firm forward movement on the series. Don’t expect to see it any time before 2025 or 2026, at the earliest, especially as the 2023 Writers Strike is likely to have stalled progress a little.
Twilight TV series cast speculation
There will almost certainly be a whole new Twilight TV series cast, as we don’t expect Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to return to their vampiric roles.
It’s unlikely that the big hitters will be back in the Twilight cast, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson now firmly ensconced within careers a long way from their divisive vampire movies.
R-Patz and K-Stew – all actors got nicknames in the 2000s – have been in some of the best movies of recent years, and Pattinson is one of the best Batman actors now, so it’s doubtful they’d want to retread their past on the small screen.
In fact, if there are any returning faces, they’re likely to be in the Volturi clan of vampiric authority figures. Michael Sheen could well lead the group again as Aro, for example. He certainly had a great deal of fun with the role of one of the best movie villains last time and we would love to see more of him.
What will the Twilight TV series be about?
The Twilight TV series plot could re-adapt Stephenie Meyer’s books, or tell a different story within that world.
Very little has been officially revealed about the plot of the Twilight reboot yet, with Daly still ironing out a direction and book author Stephenie Meyer reportedly involved too.
The story of the books follows the forbidden romance between human teenager Bella Swan and permanently teenage vampire Edward Cullen. Things are complicated further by the fact that Bella’s childhood friend Jacob Black is also interested in her. That’s messy enough, but he’s also a werewolf with a grudge against vampires.
Of course, the series could just go over that story again – which is reportedly what the Harry Potter series will do – but there are also plenty of Twilight stories we’re desperate for them to tell. Vampires are immortal in this world, which means some of the characters are very old. It raises the prospect of exploring some of them much earlier or later in their lives.
We could go back into the Cullens’ origin stories, explore the historical world of the Egyptian Coven, or find out more about the Children of the Moon. Yep, there are actual werewolves in this world. No, the werewolves in Twilight aren’t actual werewolves. No, we don’t have time to explain right now.
Is there a Twilight TV series trailer?
We don’t have a trailer for the Twilight TV series just yet and we’ll be waiting a few years because filming hasn’t even started.
However, we want to give you Twi-hard readers a gift ahead of the Twilight reboot. So here’s more than 40 minutes – yes, 40 – of behind-the-scenes highlights from the franchise. Don’t say we don’t reward you for reading.
Where can I watch the Twilight TV series?
You can’t watch the Twilight TV series just yet, as the project is still being developed. We know Lionsgate Television is working on the show, but they haven’t revealed which TV network or which of the best streaming services will air the Twilight reboot when it’s ready.
That’s everything we know about the Twilight TV series reboot so far. And whether you’re a Twi-hard fan or an anti-Cullen fanatic, we want to tell you that the Twilight ending is one of the best movie twists ever. You can also find out why a cursed Twilight doll scared the cast and crew.
We’ve also got everything you need to know about some of the new movies coming in 2023 and beyond, including the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie release date and the Dune 2 release date. Or for more dark teen stories, find out about Wednesday season 2.
