Directed by filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber, the Dungeons & Dragons series will supposedly be eOne’s biggest TV project. Thurber, who previously directed films like Red Notice and Dodgeball, is also the writer for the pilot episode of the live-action series. With its rich history of over 50 years, the Dungeons & Dragons series might also create (and expand) a new universe with a wide gamut of exciting storylines.

It is also worth mentioning that this won’t be the fantasy game’s debut series on TV, as the animated series Dungeons & Dragons used to air from 1983 to 1985. That series revolved around six teenage friends on a quest to get back home after being magically teleported to a fantasy land.

Another reason why you will love the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons live-action series is because of its key relation to Stranger Things. The viral and immensely popular Stranger Things has characters like Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will who love playing the fantasy game. The Dungeons & Dragons references on the show have become one of the most endearing aspects of Stranger Things. In fact, we can’t help but wonder if the new Paramount+ series will return the favour and have its own references for Stranger Things. 

Well, we’ll keep you posted with the latest updates on the new Paramount+ production.
