Just like the recently announced Harry Potter television remake, it looks like Twilight is set to have its story adapted into a TV show too.

According to The Hollywood Reporter who first reported the news, "Lionsgate Television is in early development on a series that could bring author Stephenie Meyer’s book series back to life after the wildly successful movies."

So far, the project seems to be in very, very early development stages but if it goes ahead, it will turn the best-selling book series into its own TV show.

Per THR's sources, the show "does not yet have a network/platform or a writer". The studio is reportedly planning to lead the development before shopping the rights to the package. Sources also say that Stephenie Meyer is expected to be involved in the new television adaptation.

It's been 11 years since Breaking Dawn: Part 2 hit cinemas and wrapped up the massively successful Twilight movie series.
