Amazon Studios is reportedly close to developing a series based on EA and BioWare’s hit sci-fi franchise, Mass Effect. The news stems from an article that Deadline published today regarding Prime Video’s latest series, The Wheel of Time, which is the most watched series of the year on the service, according to Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke. Amazon’s interest in adapting Mass Effect was presumably prompted by the success of sci-fi dramas such as The Expanse.
Deadline’s blurb regarding a possible Mass Effect show:
One of the company’s newest hopefuls in the arena is Mass Effect. Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts.
The outlet had nothing else to share aside from a description of the games, but fans of Henry Cavill might remember that the actor teased a “secret project” earlier this year that seemingly relates to Mass Effect. Cavill posted an image to Instagram that turned out to be a synopsis for the third game.
