Alan Wake Developer Remedy has announced that it will adapt it into a series at AMC.
In a video celebrating the game’s 12th anniversary, Remedy’s creative director Sam Lake confirmed the carrier had acquired the rights to develop a TV series.
“Some of you may remember that quite a while ago we talked about [an] Alan Wake TV show,” Lake said. “Well AMC, the wonderful home of absolutely brilliant TV shows, bought the rights to Alan Wake. And we teamed up to do a TV show.
“There’s nothing more to share at the moment but we’ll be sure to let you know when we have something to announce.”
It was first reported in 2018 (via Diversity) that Alan Wake will be adapted into a TV show, with Legion’s Peter Calloway is on board as host and Lake as executive producer. It is unclear if Calloway will still be involved in the project at AMC.

Last year, Remedy released Alan Wake Fixed on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. It will be released on Nintendo Switch later this year.
The studio is also working on a survival horror sequel, Alan Wake 2slated for release in 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Alan Wake joins huge list of game adaptations in the works, including HBO’s Our last, Twisted metal on Peacock and a movie based on Street inspiration.
