Netflix is developing the Diablo Series

Here are the latest rumors making rounds that Netflix is developing a new series based on Diablo by teaming with Syfy’s Eureka co-creator Andrew Cosby.

Netflix is said to have suggested Cosby to adapt the 22-year-old hack-and-slash dungeon crawler series, as per the geek site’ Revenge of the Fans. There were further speculations making rounds that the series will be an animated affair, just like the Netflix's previous video game adaptation Castlevania by writer Warren Ellis.  However, there aren't any more details on what part of Diablo Netflix wants to develop into series.

Cosby is one among four credited screenwriters on the 2019 Hellboy reboot, and written for TV shows Eureka and Haunted,, besides co-founding comic book publisher Boom! Studios, which has worked on Pixar, Muppets, Warhammer, Die Hard, and 28 Days Later

For Starters, Diablo Series is a huge success with the sales of over 30 million copies. The first title and an expansion was out in 1996 and 1997, which was followed by sequel Diablo II and expansion Diablo II: Lord of Destruction in 2000 and 2001.  It took almost 11 years for the next release Diablo III, and Blizzard has continued to support the game with expansions in 2014 and 2017.
