Are They Making a ‘Fourth Wing’ TV Show?
A Fourth Wing TV show is official in the works by Amazon and Outlier Society, a.k.a. Michael B. Jordan’s production company. Outlier has acquired the rights to not only Fourth Wing, but its four remaining planned books in Rebecca Yarros’ Fourth Wing-universe, also titled The Empyrean book series.
Rebecca will be acting as a non-writing executive producer on the show.
Per the official logline for the Fourth Wing TV series, “Enter the brutal world of Basgiath War College where there is only one rule: Graduate or Die. Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail expected to live a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general― her tough-as-talons mother―has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders. If the fire-breathing beasts don’t kill her, one of her fellow riders just might. Suspense, action, romance, and dragons blend together in a propulsive fantasy adventure from NYT bestselling author Rebecca Yarros.”
