Conan The Barbarian Series In The Works

Conan the Barbarian is coming to the civilized world. 

Deadline reports that a new drama series based on Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian stories is in the works at Amazon. 

The project, entitled Conan, is the brainchild of Colony co-creator Ryan Condal, Fargo and The Handmaid's Tale creative Warren Littlefield, and Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik. Pathfinder Media and Endeavor Content are also behind the new show. 

Condal writes the script for Conan, which is described as a classic retelling of Conan's story through a "return to his literary origins." The outlet provided a brief summary of the series' central plot: "Driven out of his tribal homelands, Conan wanders the mysterious and treacherous world of civilization where he searches for purpose in a place that rejects him as a mindless savage."

Given his reported "personal obsession" with the source material, Condal seems the perfect fit to pen the new narrative. Sapochnik, who also is a longtime fan of Howard's Conan tales, directs the series. Littlefield executive produces. The trio are apparently have a shared creative goal for Conan as well: to bring Howard's original literary works to the small screen in a series that's "faithful to the spirit his Conan character," which Howard created in 1932 through a collection of fantasy stories for Weird Tales magazine.

The character of Conan the Barbarian appeared on the big screen in the 1982 John Milius-directed, Arnold Schwarzenegger-led feature film Conan the Barbarian. Later, Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa brought Conan back to life in the 2011 sword and sorcery reboot, which was, unfortunately, panned by critics and audiences alike. There have also been two animated Conan television series and a syndicated action-adventure show called Conan the Adventurer, which starred Ralf Möller in the title role.

Outside of film and television, Conan has been a sizable force in the comics world, having been a part of Marvel Comics until 2003. DC Comics and Dark Horse later published new Conan stories, and Deadpool movie writer Gail Simone recently penned a comic miniseries that sees the barbarian team up with Wonder Woman. 

Additional details surrounding Conan haven't been revealed as of yet. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

And will Arnold make a cameo?

Netflix has acquired exclusive rights for Conan the Barbarian, Robert E. Howard's famous epic fantasy hero that originally launched Arnold Schwarzenegger as an action superstar.

Deadline reports that Netflix can "develop works across TV and film, both live-action and animated" in the Conan universe, but will start with a live-action series. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger starred as Conan in the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, and its 1984 sequel Conan the Destroyer. The franchise was later rebooted with a 2011 film Conan the Barbarian starring Jason Momoa that bombed at the box office and with Conan fans in general.

Conan the Barbarian started with dozens of stories by Howard in the early 20th century, before a slew of other SFF authors wrote their own interpretations of the character across decades, producing over 50 novels and dozens of short stories of Conan adventures. There is a huge amount of material for the series to mine, though any show would likely stick with the canonical Howard stories.

Conan...following The Witcher?

As a fellow sword-and-sorcery property, Conan closely aligns with The Witcher, another Netflix-licensed property with a live-action series as well as a planned live-action prequel Blood Origin and a planned animated film Nightmare of the Wolf. If the initial Conan series is equally successful with audiences, Netflix could easily translate the huge amount of Conan lore into spinoff shows and movies.

As of now, Netflix has begun searching for a showrunner and writers, and no casting decisions have been made yet. Fans of the original film will undoubtedly keep their fingers crossed that Schwarzenegger will at least make a cameo appearance of some kind, but it's probably safe to assume that they will cast a far younger actor for the main role.

Amazon previously bought the rights to a TV series in 2018, with Emmy-winning Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik attached to the project, but nothing came of it.

Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler, who own the Conan rights, will executive produce. They previously worked on 2017 SyFy series Blood Drive, which focused on a dystopian death race with cars powered by blood.

Schwarzenegger's lost "King Conan" film

Arnold Schwarzenegger would love to return to Conan, but stated that Cabinet Entertainment, which owns the rights and sold them to Netflix, hasn't taken him up on the offer.

In an interview with The Arnold Fans, which we found via Looper, the actor said that the owner of the rights is "some young guy" who was convinced by others into turning Conan into a series, while Schwarzenegger claims that "we have been trying to convince him for years" to "do another Conan movie".

Arnold's idea is that a new Conan film would "have me play King Conan, when Conan is like 70 years old and he's disgusted by sitting on the throne and being the king". He claimed that the script is not far from being finished, and that the only thing standing in the way of it happening was the rights holders pulling the trigger.

Aquaman writer Will Beall and Fast & Furious writer Chris Morgan reportedly wrote this script as a direct sequel to 1982's Conan the Barbarian. However, it seems now that it will never see the light of day.

Based on this, it is unlikely that the showrunners have a good enough relationship with the actor to invite him on for a cameo, when all he wanted was a chance to return in a starring role to the franchise that launched his career.

‘Conan the Barbarian’ Series in Development at Netflix

Logo text

What is best in life? Netflix is betting it might be a series adaptation of Conan the Barbarian.

The streamer is developing a project based on Robert E. Howard’s pulp stories. It stems from a deal between Netflix and Conan Properties International, which is owned by Fredrik Malmberg’s Cabinet Entertainment. Pathfinder Media, headed by Malmberg and Mark Wheeler, will produce.

The deal gives Netflix the option to acquire rights to Howard’s catalog and develop both series and feature films, either live action or animated. The series project is a live action.

Netflix’s potential series is the second streaming effort at the character in recent years. Amazon in 2018 developed a show based on Howard’s works, with Pathfinder Media also involved, but it didn’t move forward.

Conan was famously played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in two movies in the early 1980s. Jason Momoa took on the role in a 2011 movie that offered a new take on the character.

Howard’s Conan stories, mostly published in Weird Tales magazine, set a blueprint for the sword-and-sorcery genre. The original stories have also been adapted into scores of novels and comic books, an animated TV series and a live-action syndicated show.

Should it go forward, a Conan series at Netflix would join a list of fantasy titles at Netflix that includes breakout The Witcher, Warrior Nun and Cursed.

Deadline first reported the news.

Conan the Barbarian live-action series is coming to Netflix

Conan the Barbarian is getting a live-action Netflix series, reports Deadline

Conan, the legendary character created by Robert E. Howard in the '30s, has famously been portrayed on the big screen by both Arnold Schwarzenegger in the '80s and Jason Momoa in 2011. While Momoa's film was not particularly well-received, 1982's Conan the Barbarian earned a sequel: Conan the Destroyer. There was a third movie planned for Schwarzenegger's Conan, titled Conan the Conqueror, but it sadly never came to be. 

So far, there are only two producers tied to the upcoming Conan Netflix project – Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler. Malmberg's Cabinet Entertainment owns Conan Properties International, and Deadline reports this deal gives Netflix exclusive options to acquire rights to the complete Conan library and create movies or TV series, both animated and live-action. A Conan the Adventurer animated series and spin-off ran in the early nineties, as well as an action-adventure series shortly after. Conan has also spawned hundreds of novels, thousands of comics, video games, and more. According to Deadline, a Conan drama series was in development at Amazon two years ago, but that has clearly fallen through.

The upcoming Conan Netflix series is currently looking for writers and directors, so it's in incredibly early stages. Now's the time for us all to put our ideal Conan casting in the hat. Momoa likely won't take another stab at it, although he's a great choice on paper. I'm all for Lovecraft Country's Jonathan Majors, who wears no shirt very well.

We've no idea when we'll get the Netflix Conan series, but we do know about a ton of other good TV. Check out our list of new TV shows coming your way in 2020 and beyond. And while you wait for Conan, check out the best Netflix shows available right now.

Conan The Barbarian Is Probably Getting Another TV Show

One might think that in these technologically driven modern times, a character like Conan the Barbarian might not have much pull, but that's certainly not the case. Seven years after the last Conan film failed to make any box office noise, even with a still-burgeoning Jason Momoa as the lead, Amazon will attempt to spin a big and fanciful Conan TV series from the works of Robert E. Howard, and with executive producer Warren Littlefield's Midas touch partly guiding things.

Simply called Conan, this new TV project aims to retell the iconic warrior's story by dipping back into author Robert E. Howard's original works. At this point the description sees Conan being driven away from his homeland and wandering the mystery-filled and dangerous world around him, where his savage upbringing is judged and dismissed by the civilized groups he comes across. Conan is seeking some kind of purpose in this world, and fans can bet it will involve some major sword fights and fisticuffs.

Amazon's Conan already has the foundation for its creative team intact, too. It was created by Ryan Condal, who most famously co-created the USA sci-fi thriller Colony, and he'll be writing the initial story. The aforementioned Warren Littlefield, the ex-NBC head who now backs critical darlings like Handmaid's Tale and Legion, will serve as an executive producer alongside Condal. Also adding to the E.P. prowess is Miguel Sapochnik, who is also set to direct, according to Deadline. Game of Thrones fans know Sapochnik for his stellar work on the memorable installment "Battle of the Bastards," and he also helmed the series premiere for Netflix's Altered Carbon, so he knows a thing or two about big, epic adaptations. Additionally, Endeavor Content will be the studio behind Conan.

Since the character's Weird Tales debut in 1932, Conan the Barbarian has appeared in tons of different stories, comic books, video games and more, with Arnold Schwarzenegger memorably portraying the first big screen iteration back in the early '80s. The long-gestating Legend of Conan sequel would have brought Schwarzenegger back into the fold, but the project has been in limbo for ages now. On the TV side, there has been one short-lived live-action version, a 1997 series made in the vein of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and there was also a pair of animated series in the 1990s.

Now on a path first blazed by the alternate history drama The Man in the High Castle, Amazon is trying to build its library up with big-budget spectacle series in order to attract more customers and critical attention. The studio is cutting back on quirky comedies and going full-force on projects like this and the potentially game-changing Lord of the Rings series that was ordered in 2017. It's impossible to tell if the rewards will surpass the risks, but we're hoping for the best from the deep-pocketed Amazon.

With the project just now going into development, there's no telling when customers might get a taste of Conan on Amazon in the future. In the meantime, though, you can check out our 2018 Amazon premiere schedule, and our midseason premiere schedule, to see all the awesome TV that's on the way.

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.

Conan the Barbarian is coming to Netflix…and we don’t mean its movie archive! Rather, the streaming giant is moving forward with a live-action television series adapting the swords, sorcery and loincloths-laden mythos created by Robert E. Howard, famously depicted as comic book art from Barry Windsor-Smith and cemented in history as portrayed onscreen by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Pathfinder Media, of Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler, have conceived the Conan television project, which has been put into development by Netflix, according to Deadline. The project stems from a deal between Netflix and IP owner Conan Properties International, yielding the streaming giant exclusive rights to the multimedia archives—be it books, television and films—to adapt as new works. Indeed, it’s a strategy that mirrors widely-encompassing exclusive deals Netflix made in recent years to produce serial adaptations of author Roald Dahl’s work, and comic book titles under Mark Millar’s Millarworld branding.

With the deal now set, the Netflix Conan the Barbarian television project will embark on a search for a writer/showrunner to creatively shape the series. For now, the only personnel onboard are the aforementioned Malmberg and Wheeler, who eastern bank danvers hours as executive producers on behalf of Pathfinder. Interestingly enough, this conan the barbarian tv show amazon is merely the latest on the property’s TV series front, arriving over two-and-a-half years after Amazon was eyeing such an endeavor, simply titled Conan, which was to tap quality talent such as Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik and Colony’s Ryan Condal, who, coincidentally, is the attached showrunner to developing Game of Thrones prequel spinoff House of the Dragon. Consequently, it will be interesting to see who Netflix attempts to pursue for this current iteration of the television project.

Conan the Barbarian, is, of course, a venerable, long-running property, having first manifested as “Conan the Cimmerian” in 1932 as the focus of pulp magazine fantasy stories from creator Robert E. Howard. The character’s presence persisted through the decades that followed the creator’s 1936 death at the young age of 30, bearing several different titles before Marvel Comics—at the time seen as a hip counterculture contrast to DC’s crop of traditional superhero fare—debuted its Conan the Barbarian comic book series in 1970, brandishing stunning, eloquent and brutal aesthetics via pencil work by Barry Windsor-Smith. Eventually, the character’s pop culture popularity facilitated a big-screen arrival in 1982 with director John Milius’ acclaimed Conan the Barbarian movie, which became a star-making vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger, leading to director Richard Fleisher’s (lesser-regarded) 1984 sequel, Conan the Destroyer.
