While of course with the release of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, there’s no doubt that the Mirror’s Edge fandom is still alive after all of these years. With such a dedicated fanbase behind the cult 2007 article, there’s a good chance they’ll gobble up anything thrown at them. Does that include a leap of faith onto the small screen?
According to Deadline, Mirror’s Edge is set to be adapted into a TV series by Endemol Shine Studios, a scripted division of Endemol Shine North America (MasterChef, Big Brother). Not too many details are known at this time, but it’s being billed as a “female-centered action series.”
Sharon Hall, president of Endemol Shine Studios, had a few words to say about the upcoming adaption: “We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience. It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA DICE have done an amazing job establishing.”
With the reboot releasing in a couple of weeks (here’s a new trailer to help you get hyped for it), the love for Mirror’s Edge is not dying down anytime soon. If the positive success of the multiple comics series for the franchise can amount to anything, the TV series may turn out to be a huge hit.
