The Conjuring movie franchise is being turned into a TV series that will continue the film storyline
| Last updated
HBO will be doing a deeper dive into the true lives of Ed and Lorraine Warren from The Conjuring.
The company announced the newly branded Max, which will be HBO's new streaming service that will combine HBO Max and Discovery+.
Studio bigwigs revealed that the horror series will be one of the flagship TV shows to kick off the new service and will 'continue the story established in the feature films'.
And they're dead serious about doing it right.
The project will be created under the watchful eye of Peter Safran, who will act as a producer on the show, just as he did with The Conjuring franchise.
Strap in people, because we're about to get a story-rich shocker that is going to pay lip service to fans of the movies while also taking a peek at what goes bump in the night.
Australian filmmaker James Wan is in talks to executive produce.
And, even if you may not know him by name, we'll guarantee you've come across 'a wham-bam thank you Wan' movie.
Have you heard of a little film called Saw? Remember that shocking moment where the body in the centre of the room slowly stood, left, and was unmasked as the killer all along?
Yeah, Wan was the man responsible for that moviemaking moment.
The deal brokered by Warner Bros. Studios will see Wan's Atomic Monster Productions and Safran’s The Safran Company take control of bringing The Conjuring TV show to life.
This is ticking all of our boxes and love-bombing us with the entertainment news we love to hear.
The films in The Conjuring universe have collectively grossed more than USD$2 billion (AUD$2.9 billion, £1.6 billion) at the box office around the world, which says to us that fans are keen as kidney beans for the new show.
One social media user seeing the news of the TV show shared six or so peeking eyes emojis and said simply: "Shut up."
A second added: "Mom and Dad are returning."
A third quipped in all caps: "GIVE IT TO ME NOW."
So yeah. It’s plain to see people are as keen as mustard.
The next instalment in the franchise, The Nun 2, will drop in cinemas on September 8.
