Jason Blum Promises That ‘Upgrade’ TV Series Is Still In Development

Veteran horror producer Jason Blum, owner of Blumhouse Productions, back in 2018 produced an Australian film Upgrade, directed by Leigh Whannell and starring Logan Marshall-Green.

TV series that will work as a sequel to the movie was in development for a while now, and now, as reported by Collider, Blum gave us a promising update:

“Upgrade should have been a wide release. I was p*ssed about that. We’re working on a TV show. So working on the scripts. This first round didn’t come out. I didn’t get the response I wanted to get. I don’t want to be in development. I want an order. We’re working on the scripts again, so that we can get an order. And I don’t want to develop it.”

We can see that Blum is determined to make this show real, wanting nothing other than a direct series order. We wish him all the good luck.

Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, Upgrade was released in 2018, starring Logan Marshall-Green, Harrison Gilbertson, Benedict Hardie, and Betty Gabriel. The movie earned $17 million against the budget of $3 million. The movie was praised by critics for its action sequences and dark humor.

We still don-t know much about the TV series except for what Blum just said, although it’s been revealed that the series will take place a few years after the movie. It is unknown how will the series handle the cliffhanger the movie left.

Leigh Whannell and Tim Walsh are co-creators of the show. It is unknown to which network the show will be made.
