Carrie TV series in development

Stephen King's first novel has previously been adapted into two films.

US network FX are to adapt Stephen King’s iconic horror novel Carrie into a limited TV series.

The project is still in the very early stages of development meaning there’s currently no more information available. 

No writer or director is attached and it’s not yet clear when the series will enter production. 

Carrie is King’s first published novel, written whilst he was working as a high-school English teacher in Hampden, Maine. 

It’s been adapted into a film twice, the first in 1976 by Brian De Palma which is widely regarded as one of the best horror films ever made and earned star Sissy Spacek an Academy-Award nomination. 

A remake followed in 2013, written by Riverdale creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa, with Chloe Grace Moretz in the titular role which received mostly negative to average reviews. 

Other incarnations include The Rage: Carrie 2 a 1999 sequel to the first film, a 2002 made for TV film and the infamously terrible broadway musical which closed after just 5 performances in 1988.

Carrie joins several other upcoming Stephen King TV adaptations including the just announced Jerusalem’s Lot starring Adrien Brody, The Outsider, Apple TV’s Lisey’s Story and The Stand.
