The Legend of Zelda TV Series Reportedly in the Works From Castlevania Netflix Showrunner

As the legends foretold.

The showrunner for Netflix's animated Castlevania series, Adi Shankar, announced that he's working with an "iconic Japanese gaming company" for a new television adaptation and reports say that it's for a Legend of Zelda TV show.

Shankar shared an Instagram post late last night teasing an announcement for November 16. "I can confirm that I'm working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series," Shankar posted.

The Wrap says it has learned exclusively that the company Shankar is referring to is Nintendo and the series is based on The Legend of Zelda. There are of course many iconic Japanese gaming companies and Shankar is already working with Konami on a Castlevania series so there are of course other possibilities.

We also don't know what format this series could be, whether live-action or animated like Castlevania. Shankar's full body of work includes live-action films like Dredd, Killing Them Softly, and Power/Rangers. He's also serving as executive producer on an Assassin's Creed series for TV.

A full announcement is expected on Friday, November 16 at 1pm PT. Castlevania's second season is currently airing on Netflix following the success of season one.
