The Magic Order - TV Series Adaptation of Mark Millar Comic Scrapped by Netflix


Netflix has opted not to proceed with The Magic Order, its upcoming series based on the Mark Millar comic published by Netflix. The project had been in early pre-production in Prague for a targeted 2021 start. It had not yet begun casting, with scripts still being written.

I hear Netflix brass continue to be high on The Magic Order IP; upon release, the comic became the highest selling new comic-book launch in almost 20 years, with additional volumes coming soon.

I hear a decision was made that the series as currently envisioned won’t move forward but the streamer hopes to revisit The Magic
Order as a TV series in the future.

The large scope of the project and the global uncertainty amid the pandemic were a factor in the decision not to go forward with the series, though not the primary one, I hear.

The Czech Republic this week reported a record number of new COVID-19 infections and is now seeing the virus spreading at the fastest rate in Europe. I hear at least one member of The Magic Order on the ground in the county has been affected.

In The Magic Order, five families of magicians sworn to protect our world 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.
