Sarah J. Maas’ wildly popular A Court of Thorns and Roses is getting a TV show treatment, according to the author.
Maas confirmed the news on her Instagram Friday afternoon. She also mentioned that she will co-adapt the story with Ron Moore, the creator of ‘Outlander.’ They’re currently “hard at work” on the show’s pilot episode. Hulu is the studio that ordered the show.
“[T]here is SO much more news to share with you guys about bringing this series to life,” Maas wrote on Instagram. “it just feels so great to finally be able to talk about this!”
This isn’t the first Sarah J. Maas book to be ordered for television. Hulu also picked up rights for a Throne of Glass television show in 2016, but little to no news has come out of development since its announcement. (Artemis Fowl fans can relate.)
A Court of Thorns and Roses is the first novel in a fantasy series that currently spans five books. The most recent novel, A Court of Silver Flames, was released just a month ago. As many have often pointed out, while Maas is very popular in the YA community, this particular series is noted for its adult themes and is likely not suitable for younger readers.
