Alan Wake TV series

Just like The Last of Us was an ideal game to adapt to the small screen, Alan Wake is perfect to have its own TV series as well. If you've ever played any of Remedy's games, you know they like adding live-action videos in between gameplay segments. Their latest project, Alan Wake 2, proved there could be a seamless mix of both mediums that enhances the story rather than distract from it.

Since Remedy's venture into live-action has mostly proven successful, Alan Wake seems like a no-brainer to be adapted into a TV show. Netflix's Dark already proved that a series with a dark story and slight horror elements can be a hit with audiences, so Alan Wake has every chance to be as successful as well.

It's been more than one year since we last heard from Alan Wake's TV adaptation, so who knows when it will finally hit screens. But whenever that time comes, we'll be here with a flashlight ready to venture into the world of Bright Falls and uncover all of its mysteries.

Verdict: Hit in the making
