EDGE OF TOMORROW Television Series Was Reportedly In The Works At HBO Max, Lawsuit Reveals

While a sequel has been in the works for years, it sounds like Warner Bros. was recently considering a pivot to streaming and had begun quietly developing an Edge of Tomorrow television series.

Following Village Roadshow filing a bombshell lawsuit against their longtime partners at Warner Bros. earlier today, several new details have emerged, revealing some of what the studio may have been planning in recent months. It sounds like one of their mystery projects was a big-budget Edge of Tomorrow television series for HBO Max.

There's no other information at this point in time, but it sounds like the studio was indeed committed to developing a follow-up to Doug Liman's 2014 sleeper hit that starred Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. However, with production on the sequel being perpetually delayed due to the busy schedules of all three, it seems like the studio was floating around the idea of bringing the franchise to their flagship streaming platform. 

Considering Village Roadshow co-financed the film and that their relationship with WB may effectively be over, it's unclear whether this potential series could move forward without their involvement. It also seems highly improbable that Cruise would sign on for a straight-to-streaming offering, so whatever this project could or would have been, it's likely it would have been centered on a different batch of characters. 

A prequel series about Blunt's Rita Vrataski would presumably be the most interesting avenue to explore, possibly revealing how she earned the "Full Metal Bitch" moniker and would make sense considering Liman previously said the film follow-up would be a "sequel that's a prequel."

Regardless of what happens next, it's certainly a fun prospect to think about what might have been.
