In exciting news, word has come out that WarnerMedia has given the go-ahead to a female-focused take on Frank Herbert’s Dune called Dune: The Sisterhood.
Dune: The Sisterhood will air on WarnerMedia’s as-yet-unnamed streaming service and will be a female-focused take on the Dune story. Even more exciting, Denis Villeneuve, director of the 2020 Dune film, will be directing the pilot episode. The series will explore the world of Dune through the lens of a mysterious group of women known as the Bene Gesserit. Readers of the Dune series are very familiar with this group, who use a complex series of alliances to manipulate the future in ways that will benefit their interests in the long run.
Villeneuve had this to say: “The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me. Focusing a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and inspiring but a dynamic setting for the television series,”
No casting information has been released for Dune: The Sisterhood, nor is it known when the series will start filming. However, it is known that WarnerMedia’s streaming service will launch later this year. Hopefully we’ll learn more about this new series when the streaming service launches.
