Variety has officially confirmed that Amazon has green lit a sequel series for Blade Runner.

The live-action limited series will be titled Blade Runner 2099 and is set to have begun development in February. Ridley Scott, who has signed on to executive produce the series, initially revealed that the show was in the works in November 2021. Minimal plot details have been shared, however, the title suggests that the events of the series will occur 50 years after the events of Blade Runner 2049, the 2017 sequel to the original Blade Runner.

The cast for the new series has yet to be announced and may just be one of Prime Video's most ambitious projects to date. The new sequel series is expected to be the largest-scale genre show Amazon will work on in recent years. There is currently no word on when it will release.

In other entertainment news, Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy are working on a Deadpool-Stranger Things crossover.
