Alan Wake is back! Well, sort of.

Variety is reporting today that Remedy Entertainment is now in the works to create a new television series based off of the action-adventure game Alan Wake which launched back in 2010. Peter Calloway is currently signed on to be the showrunner and writer of the series while Remedy’s own Sam Lake is pegged to be an executive producer. Contradiction Films’ Tomas Harlan says that Lake’s involvement will be vital and stated, “We plan to work closely with Sam on our this show. Sam is a huge part of this. This is his baby.”

Alan Wake’s story structure already was episodic in its nature so the transition to the realm of TV is one that makes quite a bit of sense. Many fans–myself included–have been begging for Remedy to make a proper sequel to Alan Wake over the years, but it hasn’t come to fruition just yet.

As for what fans can expect from this series, Lake told Variety that Alan Wake will still be central to the series’ story but he’s also planning to focus on many of the surrounding characters within the world. He also said that the story of the original game will serve as a baseline for the story of the TV show and it will then begin to expand and grow from there. Lake also stated that some of the plans and ideas that they had for an Alan Wake sequel might also make their way into the show.

Currently, a release window for when the series might premiere has yet to be detailed. The project is still very early in production and Harlan is planning on beginning to shop it around to studios in October. Regardless of when it arrives (assuming it’s picked up), having Sam Lake so intrinsically tied to the series gives me hope that this could turn out to be a great video game adaptation, unlike many of the others that we’ve seen in TV and film over the years.
