In the years since his Battlestar Galactica reboot ended, showrunner Ronald D Moore has worked on a broad range of television shows from Outlander to Apple TV’s For All Mankind. Moore is a genre veteran, with deep roots in science fiction on television. But now for the first time he is bringing a fantasy series to the screen. Ronald D Moore is developing an adaptation of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. The series is set to air on Hulu, marking the streaming network’s first big fantasy title as well.

The wildly popular fantasy series is loosely based on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Except with a good dose of actual Fae creatures, and even more otherworldly magic. There are currently 4 books out, with two more on the way from author Sarah J Maas. A synopsis from Macmillan Publishing tells us the following about A Court of Thorns and Roses.

“Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill. The forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator. And killing something so precious comes at a price… Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded. And as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion. And the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.”

Maas revealed the news on her Instagram account, and called Moore one of her “creative idols.” Moore and Maas are reportedly working together to write the pilot script for the fantasy series. No news yet on who will join the cast of A Court of Thorns and Roses adaptation from Ronald D Moore on Hulu. But we will be keeping a close eye on the project as it develops.
