Blade Runner 2099, a live-action sequel series set 50 years after the film Blade Runner 2049, is in development at Amazon Studios. Director Ridley Scott told the BBC in November a Blade Runner show was in the works, and now Deadline has confirmed the news

Scott, director of the original 1982 Blade Runner film, will serve as executive producer. Silka Luisa, showrunner for the upcoming Starz series Shining Girls, is writing and executive producing the show. 

The first Blade Runner film adapts Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,” and takes place in a dystopian future. When a group of humanoid robots called replicants come to earth, a cop (Harrison Ford) is called out of retirement to hunt them down. Blade Runner 2049, a sequel that arrived in 2017, stars Ryan Gosling and Ford. 

There’s no word yet on a director or actors for Blade Runner 2099. Deadline reported Scott may direct if the series moves forward.
