Horizon Zero Dawn TV Series Won’t Continue on Netflix – Report

Horizon Zero Dawn TV Series Won’t Continue on Netflix – Report

According to a report into the alleged “toxic, bullying, manipulative, and vindictive behavior” of The Umbrella Academy producer Steve Blackman, the Horizon Zero Dawn TV series appears to be moving forward at Netflix.

As reported rolling stone, Twelve employees and a complaint from the HR department have detailed the workplace at the hostel which was said to have been patronised by Blackman, although the executive producer said the claims were “completely untrue” and “absolutely ridiculous”.

At the end of the report, Blackman was reportedly offered a $50 million overall development deal at Netflix in 2020, and the Horizon Zero Dawn series was part of that package alongside an original outer space thriller series called Orbital.

But now, Rolling Stone has learned that the two projects are no longer moving forward. According to Blackman’s rep, the show’s executive producer “has a long, ongoing, and close working relationship with Netflix” and “continues to work on new projects.” Furthermore, Blackman “signed a new multi-year deal earlier this year.”

Horizon was revealed to be coming to Netflix in 2022 with Blackman as executive producer, and was set to star Aloy.

“Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-crafted game with fantastic characters that we don’t usually see in the normal gaming world,” Blackman said at the time. “Guerrilla Games has created an incredibly rich and vibrant world of man and machine who find themselves on a collision course toward oblivion.

“Their salvation comes in the form of a young warrior named Aloy, who has no idea that she is the key to saving the world,” Blackman added. “Suffice it to say, yes, Aloy will be a major character in our story. My writing partner, Michelle Lovretta, and I are thrilled to be able to expand this incredible IP into a series for all types of viewers.”

Sony announced in January 2024 that writing for the series had already begun, but we haven’t learned anything else since then.
