SPAWN Small Screen Spinoff SAM AND TWITCH Being Developed As Part Of A Potential Shared Universe

Todd McFarlane's Spawn movie has seemingly hit a roadblock, but it's now been revealed that a Sam and Twitch TV series is in the works that could form part of a wider shared universe. Read on for details!

We know that a Spawn movie is still being developed by creator Todd McFarlane, but The Hollywood Reporter now reveals that he's also working on a live-action Sam and Twitch TV series. The popular duo first appeared in the pages of Spawn #1 in 1992 and later starred in their own title. 

Condor showrunners Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg are penning the adaptation, and they will executive produce alongside McFarlane Films and indie studio wiip's Paul Lee and Mark Roybal (they most recently launched the critically acclaimed Mare of Easttown on HBO).

No studio or streamer is attached to Sam and Twitch right now, but the trade notes that McFarlane "is mulling shopping a Spawn shared universe around Hollywood. It’s very early days, and he has only begun conversations with his agents. But McFarlane believes he is in a unique position to offer something with a track record built over decades and which has grown to include hundreds of characters and sold hundreds of millions of books."

Ultimately, time will tell whether Hollywood is interested in the Spawn property, but there's definitely potential there. It's added that Blumhouse is looking for a studio partner on the movie with the plan being to then offer them the chance to take charge of a shared universe built around the hero. 

"Could there be a third or fourth big shared universe? Possibly. But is it going to happen fast with one or two individuals? No," McFarlane tells them. "It’s going to be a long, multi-creator group that is just going to spread your creative seeds and stand back and hope it grows into a forest."

We'll see whether this leads anywhere...
