Tomb Raider TV Series Officially Greenlit by Amazon

Amazon has officially greenlit a Tomb Raider TV series with writer and executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It will be produced by Amazon MGM Studios and Crystal Dynamics and premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries worldwide.

British actress, screenwriter and producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge will lead the Tomb Raider TV series as its writer and executive producer. For her work on the TV show Fleabag, Waller-Bridge won Emmys, Golden Globes and BAFTA awards. The TV adaptation forms part of a wider collaboration between Amazon and Crystal Dynamics which also includes plans for a new movie and video game.

Speaking fondly about the opportunity to bring Lara Croft to life in a new adaptation, Waller-Bridge stated:

“If I could tell my teenage self this was happening I think she’d explode. Tomb Raider has been a huge part of my life and I feel incredibly privileged to be bringing it to television with such passionate collaborators. Lara Croft means a lot to me, as she does to many, and I can’t wait to go on this adventure. Bats ‘n all.”

Crystal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos added:

“Amazon MGM Studios and Amazon Games are incredible collaborators with a massive reach across the globe, enabling us to expand our Tomb Raider franchise with multiple new adventures and a shared passion for creating impactful, entertaining, emotional experiences for players and viewers throughout every facet of this universe. These timeless stories span all media platforms to meet audiences where they want to engage with Tomb Raider; it’s a critical step towards our future with fans everywhere.”

Details about the next Tomb Raider game leaked earlier this month, giving us a bit more information about the game’s setting and story. According to the leak, it will be set in an open world India and follow Lara as she faces off against The Society of Raiders, an organisation of tomb raiders as they race to seize control of powerful relics. The game has yet to be officially unveiled.
