The film franchise starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will get a TV reboot!

A television series based on “Twilight,” the fantasy romance novels by Stephenie Meyer, is in early development at Lionsgate TV, based on a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

The “Twilight” book series has been a hit since the first book was released in 2005, and the success continued through the movie adaptations that made the franchise popular.

The film franchise launched Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner to global stardom as they figured in a supernatural love triangle. The story revolves around Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart), a human teenager who moves to Forks, Washington, and falls in love with her mysterious classmate, Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson).

The rivalry between the two even sparked fans to choose between being part of #TeamEdward or #TeamJacob.

When Bella learns that Edward is a vampire, their love story becomes even more complicated because of the presence of Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), a werewolf who is smitten with the human teenager.

The casting of the Twilight TV series is still underway, and the upcoming TV show does not yet have a network/platform.

Meyer’s debut “Twilight” novel was first published in 2005. The succeeding novels—”New Moon,” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn”—were released annually until 2008. Over 100 million copies of the books have been sold worldwide.

The “Twilight” movie version was released in 2008 followed by “New Moon” (2006); and “Eclipse” (2007). The final installment, “Breaking Dawn,” was divided into two parts, with Part 1 being released in 2011 and Part 2 being released in 2012.

The Twilight TV series has the support of Meyer, the author of the Twilight saga who is reportedly “expected to be involved.”

This development comes on the heels of the news that “Harry Potter” will also get a TV adaptation.
