A Tomb Raider TV Series Has Officially Been Greenlit By Amazon

With a fleabag of a producer.

Head of Amazon and MGM Studios Jen Salke has announced today at Amazon’s Upfront event in New York that a brand new Tomb Raider television series is in the works following rumours circulating as early as last year.

The series is helmed by none other than Phoebe Waller-Bridge, creator of the critically acclaimed series Fleabag as well as contributing to writing for Solo: A Star Wars Story and the latest James Bond film No Time To Die.

The production is described as an “epic” and “globe-trotting” series by Salke.

On the series being picked up, Waller-Bridge said “If I could tell my teenage self this was happening I think she’d explode. Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to be bringing it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara Croft means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all”

The announcement comes off the back of Amazon announcing a slew of other video-game adaptations, including the upcoming God of War adaptation and the critically acclaimed and very popular recently released Fallout adaptation.

No casting or release details were confirmed as of yet.

If that wasn’t enough Tomb Raider for you, there’s a Netflix animated series in the works and a new game coming at some point in the near future, too.

Lara for days, it seems.
