Mass Effect TV Series Could Reportedly Be Coming to Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to create a TV series based on Mass Effect, according to a report from Deadline.

This titbit of information comes from Deadline's report on the success of the recent Amazon fantasy series The Wheel of Time, based on the long-running book series of the same name, with fantasy genres of all kind (including sci-fi, presumably) now seen as very important for Amazon Studios.

“One of the company’s newest hopefuls in the arena is Mass Effect,” Deadline reports. “Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts.”

Mass Effect is a series that would likely work much better as a TV series than a film, but with the video games already offering up an excellent story, and the recent release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition making the original trilogy easily accessible once again, we can't help but wonder if a Mass Effect series is necessary. Oh, and remember when Superman and Geralt of Rivia actor Henry Cavill was teasing a secret Mass Effect project? Perhaps this is what he was working on after all.

  • Huh. I hope it's not a direct adaptation of the games. It kind of goes against the spirit of it to make a 'canon Shepard', I think.
  • Show has male sheppard - outrage
    Show has female sheppard - outrage
  • @Patrin18, Well then the solution is simple, Sheppard will become non-binary. Everybody happy
