It’s been a while since we’ve had something from The Conjuring universe scare the pants off us, but that’s all about to change.
As reported within the last week, all parties involved in the franchise are developing a television spin-off for the newly renamed Max streaming service.
Series producer Peter Safran is spearheading the project, with universe creator James Wan “in talks” to also come aboard.
The show will “continue the story established in the feature films,” and act as a joint venture between Wan’s Atomic Monster, The Peter Safran Company, Warner Bros. Television and New Line Cinema.
Plot details have yet to emerge, meaning it is unknown if the series will continue the ghostly adventures of Ed and Lorraine Warren or if it will serve to expand the universe further.
The Conjuring Universe has become the first horror franchise to gross over $1 billion at the global box-office, and that streak looks set to continue with two more features ahead.
The Nun 2 is set to release in September this year and The Conjuring 4 was recently confirmed, with series stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga set to return.
Time will tell if The Conjuring will repeat its success on the small screen. We will report any further details as they emerge.
