Cool new details arrive on the Judge Dredd TV Series, Mega-City One

June 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

With the announcement last month that a Judge Dredd TV Series is coming, call Mega-City One (here) and, even better, that Karl Urban’s big screen take on Dredd could be involved (here) we’ve been pacing the floors waiting for more info… and now we have some.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley has been talking about the series and what we can expect when it eventually arrives: “Dark fantasy elements are one area that would be great to explore,” he says.

“The show will combine the macabre with the insane and the light-hearted. It’s a big place, after all, with 400 million stories to tell.”

Given the shear size of Mega-City One itself, there’s no reason why there couldn’t be literally any sort of stories told… a comedy this week, a police drama the next, and all out horror the following.

“Long-form storytelling makes showing Mega-City One and its inhabitants much easier,” Kingsley continues, “Trying to fit all of that into a two-hour movie is very hard.”

So when can we expect to see this slice of TV awesomeness?: “My best guess if that it’s at least two years away… but we’re so early in the process that things could happen a bit faster, or much more slowly.”

So don’t hole your breath because this, while happening, is still very much up in the air.

And what about Karl Urban’s return as Dredd? Well, Kingsley promises he’ll “have a chat with him”… we can ask no more than that at this minute.


Dredd is coming again folks. It’s a good reason to be excited!

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
