HBO Secures Deal for ‘Hellraiser’ Series

Prepare to have your soul torn apart, Deadline reported today that HBO has locked in a deal with producers Dan Farah and Roy Lee for a TV series adaptation of Hellraiser, which itself is a film version of Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart.

To be behind the camera at least for the pilot and several preliminary episodes is David Gordon Green who helmed Halloween 2018 and its sequels Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends due for release on Oct 16, 2020 and 0ct 15, 2021 respectively.

It is currently unknown if Doug Bradley will reprise his role as the series’ main antagonist Pinhead, but according to the article the creators’ idea is to expand in the mythology of the series and not be a strict remake but share the same continuity as the film series that spanned 10 movies. The new series is the first for television, which will be a different approach as Barker has written many stories that take place in that world.

Currently there is another Hellraiser film by Spyglass and David Bruckner being made but it won’t tie into the TV series.

Check back soon for more on the TV series of Hellraiser.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
