Indiana Jones has dominated the big screen for many years, now the franchise is looking to dominate the small screen in the form of a Disney+ series.
According to Variety, Disney and Lucasfilm are taking pitches from writers for a Disney+ series. Since there are no writer(s), there are no plot details to share. It is also unknown if the series would be a prequel, sequel, or spinoff to the Indiana Jones films, which has the currently untitled fifth film set to debut next summer.
Disney is currently exploring a number of options to keep the franchise going, which could mean a series, new films, other media, or a combination thereof.
Should a series move forward, it would not be the first Indiana Jones series. ABC debuted The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which explored the childhood and youth of the fictional character Indiana Jones and primarily stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier as the title character, with George Hall playing an elderly version of Jones for the bookends of most episodes, though Harrison Ford bookended one episode.
Directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones 5 sees Harrison Ford reprising his titular hero and John Rhys-Davies returning as Sallah, with new cast members including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, and Antonio Banderas. The film is scheduled for release on June 30, 2023
