Blade Runner series is a follow up to the 2017 film.
A Blade Runner series is officially happening at Amazon. Previously the series was announced to be in the works. The original franchise director Ridley Scott will serve as an executive producer. The first film made its debut in 1982 and starred Harrison Ford. A sequel titled Blade Runner 2049 was released in 2017 and starred Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, and Harrison Ford. It was directed by Denis Villeneuve, who helmed Dune. An anime series titled Black Lotus debuted in November 2021 on Adult Swim. The new series will take place 50 years later and is titled 2099.
We are delighted to continue our working relationship with our friends at Amazon. And we are beyond excited to continue to extend the Blade Runner canon into a new realm with the provocative storyline that Silka has created. Audiences first discovered Ridley Scott’s brilliant vision for Blade Runner 40 years ago, and since then, it has become one of the most influential science-fiction films of all time. Denis Villeneuve’s follow-up sequel, Blade Runner 2049, then became one of the best reviewed sequels of all time. So, we recognize that we have a very high bar to meet with this next installment. Together with Silka and our partners at Amazon, and Scott Free Productions, we hope that we can live up to that standard and delight audiences with the next generation of Blade Runner.Alcon co-CEOs and co-founders Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson
