It’s honestly difficult to imagine a world wherein Blizzard’s promise of multiple new Diablo projects includes an animated series, but that appears to be the case. Andy Cosby, the writer for an upcoming Hellboy animated series, confirmed in a tweet that he is in final talks for writing and show-running a new Netflix series based on the Diablo franchise.
He then deleted the tweet, which indicates that he wasn’t supposed to confirm that yet… but this is the internet, so of course that was screencapped and memorized.
Obviously, there are no further details at this time, seeing as it appears there were not even meant to be that many details yet. But it’s good news for anyone playing through the latest Diablo III season hoping for some forward motion in the franchise. Who knows? There might be more light to hope for another title altogether.
