The expected Dungeons & Dragons live-action series are not moving forward at Paramount+. The streaming service gave the project an eight-episode straight-to-series order in January 2023. The series is part of the classic fantasy role-playing franchise that is nearly 50 years old.

A live-action film, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, was released in 2023 and is now available on the streaming service. An animated series that aired on CBS for three seasons in the 1980s before being canceled. The story was resolved years later in a live-action car commercial.

Hasbro Entertainment is now buying the Dungeons & Dragons TV series to other outlets, depending on deadline. However, the project will undergo some changes before being examined. The following was revealed about Hasbro’s plans for the series:

Now run by Hasbro’s in-house division, Hasbro Entertainment, following the sale of eOne to Lionsgate in December 2023, the project will undergo a creative update before being presented to other potential buyers, both production partners and platforms, sources said.

The changes will include a new creative team. The version, sold to Paramount+, came from creator Rawson Marshall Thurber, who wrote the pilot script and was set to direct the first episode. He was later joined by Drew Crevello, who joined in April 2023 as executive producer and showrunner.
