WarnerMedia’s streaming service will be developing a sci-fi series called “Dune: The Sisterhood,” according to a report from Variety.
The series will take place in the “Dune” universe that was created in the book series by author Frank Herbert. In “Dune: The Sisterhood,” the audience will be introduced to the Bene Gesserit, an order of women surrounded by mystery and extraordinary physical and mental abilities.
“The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me,” director Denis Villeneuve said. “Focusing a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and inspiring but a dynamic setting for the television series.”
Previously, the “Dune” universe came to TV in a three-part SyFy miniseries in 2000 and the follow-up “Children of Dune” in 2003.
Legendary Television, the company producing the show, is also producing a “Dune” film reboot with Warner Brothers distributing the film. The film is set to be in theaters in November 2020.
