Ok, so we know that Underworld 5 is currently in post production but what you may not know is that an Underworld TV series is also in the works.

Em, what?

Speaking to Collider, director Len Wiseman talks up the TV show and what it may be: “Yes, there’s been a lot of conversations and even development on what that series would be: “It’s really appropriate for television, in terms of how those characters can really tie in, but also become something new. It’s really an attractive space. I don’t want to put a date on it because then that’s going to be printed and it might not happen in that timeframe, but it is a thought.”

We aren’t sure what to say about this – how the series got past a first movie was mystery enough, but with it now on the fifth entry and a TV series in production, we really have to wonder if we’re missing something. And we seriously doubt Kate Beckinsale will have anything to do with this.

Still, at least it’s not Twilight, right? Right.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
