Indiana Jones TV series in development for Disney+

Indiana Jones 5 will likely be the last time we see Harrison Ford in the role of the famous adventurer, so Disney is naturally exploring ways to keep the franchise going. According to VarietyDisney is “actively seeking” to develop a Indiana Jones TV series for Disney+.

Disney has been looking for writers to develop Indiana Jones TV series, so it is unknown if the project would be a prequel or spinoff to the big screen franchise, or if it is actually connected to Indiana Jones 5. As much as the idea of ​​one Indiana Jones TV series may seem like sacrilege (or something that doesn’t involve Harrison Ford), this isn’t the first time the franchise has made its way to the small screen. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles aired on ABC from 1992-1993, with four made-for-TV specials following between 1994 and 1996. Each episode was bookended by George Hall as an older Indiana Jones reminiscing about his earlier adventures, with Corey Carrier and Sean Patrick Flanery playing the younger version of the character. Harrison Ford also made a cameo in one episode.

It’s still very early days for that potential Indiana Jones TV series, but at least we can look forward to Harrison Ford cracking that whip one more time Indiana Jones 5. In addition to Harrison Ford is Indiana Jones the sequel also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas and Shaunette Renée Wilson. While Steven Spielberg was expected to return to direct Indiana Jones 5he stepped back in 2020 and said he would “pass Indy’s whip to a new generation to bring their perspective to the story.” James Mangold stepped in to replace Spielberg as director, and he also co-wrote the screenplay with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth. Indiana Jones 5 will be published on 30 June 2023.
