Like Detective Pikachu? Netflix Developing Live Action Pokemon Series


A new Pokemon series is in early development at Netflix, Variety reports.

As the project is still in its early days, no details are available about the plot. However, sources say that Joe Henderson is attached to write and executive produce. Henderson currently serves as co-showrunner and executive producer on the popular Netflix series Lucifer, which is preparing to air its sixth and final season at the streamer.


Sources also say that the project would be a live-action series akin to the Detective Pikachu film starring Ryan Reynolds and Justice Smith that was released in 2019.

Reps for Netflix and Henderson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
