A Live-Action POKEMON Series is Now in Development at Netflix.
Netflix is in early development on a live-action Pokemon series and Joe Henderson is attached to write and executive produce. Henderson is the co-showrunner and executive producer of the series Lucifer, which is coming to an end with the upcoming sixth season.
The series is in very early development and details are slim, but the report says that the project would be “a live-action series akin to the Detective Pikachu film starring Ryan Reynolds and Justice Smith that was released in 2019.”
Henderson is also currently developing another series for Netflix, which is an adaptation of his comic book Shadecraft.
With the great love and success that Detective Pikachu saw, this was only a matter of time, but I have become a big fan of Netflix and their original content, so hearing that the streamer is bringing this to life is a bonus.
