Alongside the new Indiana Jones movie coming to theaters, it looks like the adventure hero is coming to Disney+ in a brand-new show. Variety is reporting from multiple sources that a TV series is in the works for the Nazi-punching archeologist, but not many more details were given.
While on the Disney investor call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek did mention the upcoming movies, but there was no mention of a show. Sources are saying they are still looking for a writer to take on the project and it is unknown if a series would serve as a prequel to or spinoff of the film franchise.
Another possibility is that the series would tie into the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film. Disney has tried that with great success with their Marvel Studios programs tying into the MCU, adding to the overarching stories that come to theaters, like WandaVision leading into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
This would not be the first time Indiana Jones would come to television. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles aired for two seasons on ABC from 1992 and 1993, with four made-for-TV specials airing on The Family Channel, rechristened Freeform, between 1994 and 1996. It was also a book series for children and young teens.
Harrison Ford made a cameo appearance in one episode, but the show focused mainly on the early years of the character with both Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier playing him at different times in his life. Famous character actor George Hall played an elderly Jones, looking grizzled and wearing an eyepatch, and started each episode with a small monologue as he remembered each adventure.
