The Walking Dead's AMC Nabs Alan Wake TV Series

Another major horror IP is set to be reimagined as a live-action TV series, as Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake could be about to find a whole new fan base. Better yet, the upcoming adaptation has already found a network to call home. 

After seeing the first trailer for Netflix's Resident Evil, we hope that a renaissance of video game TV series is on the way. Ignoring middling movies like the Tom Holland-led Uncharted and panning of Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City, Paramount's Halo has done pretty well, a God of War series is heading to Amazon, and The Last of Us is being called the next Game of Thrones

What Is The Alan Wake Series?

Speaking in an Alan Wake update video, Remedy Creative Director Sam Lake confirmed AMC is working on a live-action series. "We were, quite a while ago, talking about the Alan Wake TV show," said Lake. "Well, AMC, the wonderful, wonderful home for absolutely brilliant TV shows has bought the rights for Alan Wake. And we have been collaborating on making a TV show happen."

Remembering that Alan Wake pitched itself as being in the style of a TV thriller, it was only a matter of time until someone gave Remedy's IP a live-action makeover. Released in 2010, Alan Wake followed the titular novelist as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his wife's disappearance in the oddball town of Bright Falls.

If you don't know, AMC is remembered for Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and The Walking Dead. If that wasn't enough, it was also being the Alan Wake-esque The Killing. Each episode of Alan Wake opens with an AMC-inspired "Previously on Alan Wake," and with them also ending on cliffhangers, it's perfect for TV. Although talks for an Alan Wake series started back in 2018, we don't know when it'll land on AMC or who will star.

 

Are We Getting Alan Wake 2?

Over the years, hopes of Alan Wake 2 never came to pass. Developer Oskari Häkkinen had always said Remedy imagined the game as "Season 1," with the episodic DLCs helping to "bridge the gap to what we're working towards." Alan Wake's American Nightmare wasn't the full sequel fans imagined, and instead, worked as a spin-off. It was some nine years later that Alan Wake 2 was finally announced at December's Game Awards.

This time around, Alan Wake will take the route of being more of a survival horror, which we guess is due to the success of titles like The Last of Us and Resident Evil 7. Alan Wake 2 is planned as a new-gen release for next year, so at least if AMC's series is a hit, we know there's a story for a potential Season 2. All we need now is Jake Gyllenhaal to sign up, and all will be well.
