Amazon is working on a Blade Runner TV series with Ridley Scott

according to deadline, Amazon Studios is fast-tracking the development of the Blade Runner TV show, tentatively titled Blade Runner: 2099, with original film director Ridley Scott serving as executive producer. The project also features Apple TV’s Shining Girls producer Silka Luisa as lead writer and co-executive producer.

The original Blade Runner was a cult classic that remains a source of inspiration for sci-fi to this day. I loved Dennis Villeneuve’s 2017 sequel, Blade Runner: 2049, but its blockbuster performance was lacklustre, which seemed to be the last word of a big-budget production in the series, at least until it got another inevitable before the studio revival, no matter how many years later.
