Amazon Studios closes a deal to develop a TV adaptation of the Mass Effect series, reports meeting.
Further details on the ostensible project are still unknown, including whether the series will be live or animated. Amazon Studios is currently working on live-action TV adaptations of Bethesda’s Fallout seriesbut that doesn’t mean the Mass Effect show follows the same format. However, Deadline reports that Amazon Studios “is close to a deal to develop the series,” so it will likely be announced shortly.
If confirmed, the Mass Effect TV series would join a handful of upcoming adaptations of TV shows based on video games, including the aforementioned Fallout series on Amazon. Netflix’s The Witcher Season 2, PlayStation’s twisted metal show, The Halo series from Paramount Plus, the Assassin’s Creed Netflix seriesand finally, HBO is eagerly awaited The Last of Us TV show.
“You will see that we continue to invest in fantasy genres of all kinds. We have a genre-focused team on site in studios working tirelessly with our creative partners on these slate boards, and you can look forward to more, ”said Amazon Studios Director Jennifer Salke.
As for the release date, we’re probably still a long way from even knowing what year the Mass Effect series might premiere – and that assumes it’s officially given the go-ahead. Amazon Studios is currently working hard to make its TV adaptation of The Lord of the Rings ready for a September 2022 release date, so certainly don’t expect a Mass Effect series to debut before that.
