“Hellraiser” Series in Development at HBO

Doug Bradley in "Hellraiser" (1987)

A series based on the Hellraiser franchise is being developed at HBO. 

Inspired by the classic horror franchise which was based on Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart, the series will not be a reboot of Hellraiser, but rather “an elevated continuation and expansion” of its mythology, per Variety. 

The new series will be written by Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty. David Gordon Green is attached to direct several episodes. Verheiden and Dougherty will also executive produce alongside Lawrence Kuppin and David Salzman, Dan Farah for Farah Films, Roy Lee for Vertigo Entertainment, and Eric Gardner for Panacea Entertainment.
