Amazon MGM Studios is in the early stages of developing a ‘Poltergeist‘ TV series.
The show’s writer hasn’t been revealed yet. Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey from Amblin Television will be executive producers. The original 1982 film was produced by Amblin, and Steven Spielberg was involved in its creation.
The plot details are not yet available, and it is confirmed that the series will exist in the same world as the film.
‘Poltergeist’ is a famous 1982 horror film directed by Tobe Hooper and produced and co-written by Steven Spielberg. It follows the Freeling family, who experience increasingly terrifying and unexplained supernatural phenomena in their suburban home. After seeking help from paranormal investigators, they discover their house was built on a cemetery, leading to the abduction of their youngest daughter, Carol Anne, into another dimension. The film is known for its chilling storyline and groundbreaking special effects.
There was a TV series called ‘Poltergeist: The Legacy’ that aired for three seasons on Showtime and had a final season on the Sci-Fi Channel in 1999. It focused on a group called The Legacy who protected people from supernatural dangers. If the Amazon MGM Studios project proceeds, it would be another TV show in the ‘Poltergeist’ world.
