Blade Runner 2049 Live-Action Sequel Series in Development? Read On

Before Denis Villeneuve made Blade Runner 2049, Ridley Scott’s famous science fiction movie Blade Runner has always been a favourite for ardent cinema lovers. The movie starred Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard and Rutger Hauer as the famous Roy Batty, whose final monologue  “memories will be lost in time, like tears in rain” still captivates the audience. The sequel continues the storyline with Ryan Gosling in the lead. Now it is heard that a live-action ‘Blade Runner’ sequel series is in development at Amazon.

According to Variety, titled ‘Blade Runner 2099’, the series will serve as a follow-up to the ‘Blade Runner’ sequel ‘Blade Runner 2049’. Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson of Alcon Entertainment are also executive producing along with David W. Zucker of Scott Free, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ screenwriter Michael Green, Ben Roberts, Cynthia Yorkin, and Clayton Krueger.

Plot details on the series are being kept under wraps, but the title indicates it will take place fifty years after the events of the most recent film in the franchise ‘Blade Runner 2049’, which debuted in theaters in 2017 with Denis Villeneuve directing. In addition to the two films, Adult Swim recently aired the anime series ‘Blade Runner: Black Lotus’, which takes place in the year 2032.

Scott had previously teased that a ‘Blade Runner’ live-action series was in the works, telling the BBC in November 2021 that the pilot had already been written and a series bible had been prepared.

The original ‘Blade Runner’ film was released in 1982. It is based on the Philip K. Dick book ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’. The film was not a box-office success upon its original release but received strong critical acclaim and has gone on to achieve cult status. In addition to the original theatrical release, a director’s cut was released in 1992 followed by ‘The Final Cut’ in 2007.
