Poltergeist TV Series in Development at Amazon

No information about the revival's filmmakers or story details has been shared yet.


Amazon recently acquired MGM, which opened up opportunities for Amazon Studios to bring back some beloved movies and TV shows. Today, Variety confirmed that Amazon Studios is officially working on a new TV series based on the movie "Poltergeist." Currently, we don't have any information about who will be directing the series or what the story will be about. However, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey will be the executive producers. It's worth noting that Joe Russo, who was previously interested in reviving "Poltergeist," doesn't seem to be involved in this project. Keep an eye out for updates on the future of the "Poltergeist" franchise.

The first Poltergeist movie from 1982 was made by Steven Spielberg and directed by Tobe Hooper. It's about a family who's haunted by strange ghosts, and their little girl, Carol Anne, goes missing. Some folks who know about ghosts come to help, and they find out that their nice neighborhood was built on an old burial ground.

The movie "Poltergeist" from 1982 was so popular that it got two more movies following it. In the '90s, Showtime made a TV show called "Poltergeist: The Legacy" that ran for four seasons. This series was about people who help families dealing with spooky stuff. In 2015, Gil Kenan helped make a new movie based on the same idea.

"Poltergeist" is a famous example of the haunted house type of movie, and it's still a big deal today. Two well-known storytellers, Hooper and Spielberg, teamed up for the movie, and they almost got Stephen King, a famous author, to join them as well.

"It didn't work out because it was before the internet and we had a communication breakdown," King previously shared with Entertainment Weekly. "I was on a ship going across the Atlantic to En­gland."

Spielberg confirmed this story, acknowledging, "I wanted him to help me out with the script and sort of write it with me, but he was unavailable."

This is the most recent news about a famous horror series making its way to television. Just a few weeks ago, it was confirmed that Halloween is going to have a TV comeback.
