Some very exciting news broke via Deadline; Lionsgate Television has now joined QC Entertainment in developing the incredible novel Wanderers by Chuck Wendig into a TV series! This is a much anticipated update since QC Entertainment won TV rights at auction in 2019, and with Glen Mazzara named as showrunner we have everything crossed Wanderers will be hitting TV screens sooner rather than later.
After QC Entertainment won an auction for TV the Chuck Wendig dystopian sci-fi novel Wanderers back in early 2019, the effort to turn it into an event series has grown stronger. Lionsgate has expanded its partnership with QC Entertainment and come aboard to develop the series. They’ve set Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead) to be showrunner. He will be executive producer with Ilene Staple and QC Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick, Raymond Mansfield and Edward H. Hamm, Jr.https://deadline.com/2020/08/lionsgate-television-qc-entertainment-chuck-wendig-sci-fi-novel-wanderers-glen-mazzara-showrunner-ep-the-walking-dead-1203022753/
If that wasn’t exciting enough, there has also been talk of a sequel to Wanderers, tentatively titled Wayward. You can find out more about the TV series and sequel over on Chuck’s blog.
And if you haven’t read Wanderers yet, we’ll forgive you and remind you that it’s out in paperback 3rd September (UK), or you can get it on eBook now!
