Oh, Hellraiser. You’ve endured a film and comic book series, honestly, why haven’t you considered a life on the small screen? The nature of the universe is certainly suited for an anthology-style show, or, a long-running narrative (although, I like the idea of a series exploring different people who obtain the Lament Configuration).
Now, it looks like someone is going to try and make that a reality with Hellraiser: The Series.
According to Variety, Sonar Entertainment and executive producer Larry Kupin are developing the project.
Kupin is behind New World, the company that brought us Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II. Sonar teases the series like this:
One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him. Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.
What do you think? Ready for some Pinhead action on television? Naturally, it’s too early to tell where the series will land, but we’ll keep you posted!
