Netflix orders series adaptation of Mark Millar’s The Magic Order

Netflix broke media ground last year by releasing the graphic novel series The Magic Order from veteran Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service), becoming the first streaming service to do so. After seeing its first issue become the highest-selling new comic book in 20 years, Netflix is developing a series adaptation of the story, according to Deadline.

The series adaptation will be executive produced by modern horror veteran James Wan (The Conjuring) and Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess is a Loser), with Beer acting as writer/showrunner for the show with Wan attached to direct the pilot episode.

We live in a world where we’ve never seen a monster and these people are the reason we sleep safely in our beds. Magic meets the mob in The Magic Order, as five families of magicians sworn to protect our world for generations must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends, and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians, and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness… unless the darkness gets them first.

The Magic Order series ran for six issues and marked the first franchise Millar created as part of the recent acquisition of Millarworld by Netflix, and the graphic novel collection of the entire series just recently hit shelves.

Netflix and Millar are set to produce not only brand new comics in the future (with hopes of turning them into live-action and animated properties on Netflix) but will also adapt many of the other original stories from Millarworld into films, series and kids’ shows available exclusively on Netflix. Though several have previously been optioned by other Hollywood studios, the rights to some of Millar’s properties now lie with the streaming service.
