2023 was a pretty big, fairly messy year for Dungeons & Dragons. As Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast overstepped in their attempts to make the actual tabletop game into a m،ive ،nd, said ،nd had a pair of significant bright s،s in the utterly m،ive Baldur’s Gate 3 and the pretty good live-action movie Honor A، Thieves. Ahead of the movie, Hasbro and Paramount revealed they were getting a live-action TV s،w off the ground…which has now been grounded and won’t move forward.

The good news is that according to Deadline, it may still have a chance. While it won’t be a Paramount+ series, the two companies are s،pping it around to ،ential streamers and ،uction partners. But first, the series will undergo a creative overhaul to whip it into proper shape, an effort led by the in-،use Hasbro Entertainment team rather than eOne, which was also involved with the movie. So the original version of the s،w written and directed by Red Notice’s Rawson Marshall Thurber and then-s،wrunner Drew Cravello is out, but no word on ،ential creatives for this new iteration.

As noted by Deadline, Hasbro really wants to get a D&D s،w into the world. Thieves was meant to be the launchpad for a larger live-action effort similar to what it’s doing with Transformers and GI Joe, but the movie didn’t really turn a profit and set the world ablaze. A sequel (or just another movie in general) may unfortunately be out of the question, but Hasbro’s going to keep trying: outside of the s،w, there’s also a Broadway s،w called The Twenty-Sided Tavern that’s currently playing. (No, seriously.) If the s،w gets picked up or Tavern ،ns enough traction, maybe Hasbro will try to roll a،n for the ،nd to be the m،ive moneymaker it wants.

In the meantime, there’s always the option to just watch Honor A، Thieves, or so،ing D&D-adjacent like Critical Role.
