Netflix cancels Grendel adaptation

TV Line's announced a planned adaptation of Matt Wagner's Grendel is not moving forward at the pretentious Netflix:
Netflix has nixed its Grendel comic book adaptation, one year after granting it an eight-episode series order.

Hailing from Supernatural co-showrunner Andrew Dabb and starring Abubakr Ali (Katy Keene) as the masked vigilante from the award-winning Matt Wagner/Dark Horse comic books, the series was to follow Hunter Rose, a gifted fencer, writer and assassin who, in seeking to avenge the death of a lost love, goes to war with New York’s criminal underworld. Except then he realizes, “Why beat them, when you can join them?”

[...] Per our sister site Deadline, Grendel, which had completed much of its filming but is not finished, might be shopped elsewhere.
When the TV show was first announced, they made a big deal out of hiring a Muslim actor to play the role of the character, and that pretty much turned it all into a political affair, most unnecessarily. Now it looks like all that virtue-signaling resulted in a production that could take a long time until it's released, and even then, 8 episodes isn't much. It could be Netflix canceled it due to how much of their woke productions are failing already, and for all we know, whatever's been filmed for this TV show may not be all that different. So, while I wouldn't waste my money on a Netflix subscription regardless, the canning of this production was for the best.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
