World of Darkness is also coming to TV!

It's not just Dungeons & Dragons, or this week's announced Scion TV show, that are getting the live-action treatment. The World of Darkness is getting a TV and movie franchise too!


According to Deadline, Paradox Interactive (owner of the World of Darkness) and The Witcher and The Expanse studio Hivemind.

Writer-producer Christine Boylan said "“The World of Darkness story universe is deliberately and unapologetically inclusive and diverse. It has always made a point of including equal gendered characters, protagonists and antagonists of every race, and representation of all creeds – bringing a female and diverse audience to gaming like nothing prior. Its games and fandom are a place where women, POC, and the LGBTQI community feel welcome and we are very proud to bring these stories to life.”

The developer, Eric Heisserer is the showrunner for Netflix's current Shadow and Bone series.


It's not WoD's first appearance on TV. Back in 1996, a short-lived 8-episode series called Kindred: The Embraced was broadcast.

Krampus ate my d20s
Between Being Human (British and NA versions), The Originals, Penny Dreadful, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Castlevania and Angel/ Buffy there has not been a time without Vampire/ Supernatural dramas. There is very little original ground to be covered, so returning to the WoD metaplot seems to be a good trove of stories.

Surprise twist! It is a Changeling and Wraith show. Vampires, Werewolves and Mages aren't even touched.
That would legit be amazing. Wraith in particular has a cool setting with the Shadowlands. Vampires are all but played out IMO. Unless it's a bunch of mid-40's recently turned Caitiff hanging out at a dwindling Wednesday Goth night at their local club.
