‘Umbrella Academy’ Creator Is Adapting Action RPG ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ Into a TV Series

While Umbrella Academy just announced its fourth and final season, the show’s creator Steven Blackman, already has a new project in the works. Blackman will be adapting the action RPG Horizon Zero Dawn into a series for Netflix.

Launched in 2017 from Guerilla Games and Sony, Horizon Zero Dawn follows a hunter named Aloy on her journey to discover more about her past in a world that’s been overrun by machine creatures.

Blackman confirmed that Aloy will be a main character in the adaptation. He’ll be working with his writing partner Michelle Lovretta to expand the IP into a fully-fledged show.

Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-crafted game with wonderful characters not often seen in the rank-and-file of the gaming world,” Blackman told Netflix’s Tudum. “Guerrilla Games has created an incredibly lush and vivid world of man and machine who find themselves on a collision course to oblivion.”

“Their salvation comes in the form of a young female warrior named Aloy, who has no idea she’s the key to saving the world,” he continued. “Suffice it to say, yes, Aloy will be a main character in our story.”

The announcement leaves fans wondering if the show will offer a look into how machines came to take over the world, or other questions introduced in the video game.

In tandem with the Horizon Zero Dawn adaptation, Blackman is also creating a show called Orbital, which takes place on the International Space Station.
