‘God of War’ TV Series Adaptation Eyed By Prime Video

Kratos is bringing his wrath to Amazon’s streaming service

The popular PlayStation action-adventure series God of War is coming to the small screen with a live-action adaptation. The upcoming show will be based on the franchise, which is steeped in ancient mythologies. Amazon Prime Video and Sony are currently in talks to develop the series.

According to Deadline, the God of War television series team will include Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, the creators and executive producers behind The Expanse. Additionally, The Wheel of Time showrunner and executive producer Rafe Judkins is rumored to be collaborating on the project. Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions will also be involved.

It’s safe to say that transmedia – the creation of shared IP across multiple ways to consume – is very much on the rise. Take a look at what else we’ve got to look forward to right here.

The Lore of God of War

The God of War game series follows protagonist spartan warrior Kratos as he battles mythological Gods. The first title in the series sees Kratos kill the Greek God of war, Ares and ascend to Godhood. While earlier titles in the series focus on Greek mythology, the 2018 release of God of War explores Norse myths. Said title also introduces players to Kratos’s son Atreus, who is unaware of his godly parentage.

The latest in the series, God of War: Ragnarök, is set to launch on September 30th, 2022.
