I can still remember the Cathedral in the original Diablo as if I played it yesterday. Diablo had a massive impact on my life and at the time, it was one amazing ARPG with a gripping, dark story. Now, this Diablo fan’s dreams have come true. An animated Diablo series might very likely be coming to Netflix as indicated by writer Andrew Cosby.
The Animated Diablo Series
Mr Cosby, known for his work on Hellboy, revealed this information on Twitter. He is currently in the final talks to write and show-run the animated Diablo Series for Activision and Netflix. Mr Cosby announced on Twitter that:
I guess I can confirm I am indeed in final talks to write and show-run the new DIABLO animated series for Activision and Netflix. It’s very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.
I guess it wasn’t time to confirm just yet as Mr Cosby seemed to have deleted his initial Tweet, but not before multiple websites picked up on it. At the time of writing, there is no indication where in the Diablo timeline the story will take place. I, for one, am hoping for a story of the Dark Wanderer between the original Diablo and Diablo II. Alternatively, it could take a completely different path focusing on a specific hero, or even the late Deckard Cain.
Before the above-mentioned Tweet, Mr Cosby said a few weeks ago that if he would ever write a Diablo series, it would be R-Rated. Now, we just have to wait and see if the series does get made. I have a sneaky suspicion that it will show up at Blizzcon this year.
