The Walking Dead Showrunner Angela Kang has received an order to develop the ‘Black Sun’ series, an upcoming show on AMC. This will not be the first time she is landing a deal with AMC, as she has been the showrunner behind ‘The Walking Dead, an American horror story premiering on AMC since 2010.
The show recently came to its eleventh and final season, and Kang has all the reasons to move forward to other projects. The Black sun series will be based on Rebecca Roanhorse’s novel of the same name, and Kang is expected to shift from the world of Zombies and scary creatures to a not-so-different world, but without the Zombies.
Black Sun Season 1 Release Date: When will it come?
AMC is yet to give us a specific date on when we should expect the Black Sun series to premiere. The series casting is yet to be released, and there is a chance that there is not so much development in the Black Sun series. Kang received the order to develop the series in December 2021, and by now, she should have given a glimpse of the show’s production or filming process, which she is yet to do. A possible first season of the show might be before 2024.
Black Sun Season 1 Plot: What should we expect?
The series is an adaptation of the novel of the same name and the first installment in the Between Earth and Sky book series. The book is an installment inspired by the American civilization before the Europeans’ arrival. It explores the power dynamics, the heavy weight of history, and the struggle of individuals who aspire to break free from society’s confines and their troubled pasts.
The show will talk about celestial prophecies, political intrigues of the pre –European times, and their forbidden magic. Roanhorse is famous for writing in-depth, passionately and beautifully, and her works have received several nominations, including Nebula and Hugo, Locus, and Campbell awards.
Black Sun Season 1 Cast: Who will appear?
The future of the upcoming Black Sun series seems bleak as AMC has yet to give updates on its casting almost a year after the announcement. We do not know the cast portraying the Serapio and the Crow family, but we can tell that it will be critically acclaimed. This will not be the first time the Black sun series will be adapted for the screens.
An earlier attempt was made in 2017, and the series did exceptionally well, with a rating of 8.9/10 on IMDB. There is also a chance that the upcoming series might have s a couple of stars that starred in the earlier show, and AMC will either confirm or refute all this.
Black Sun Season 1 Trailer: When will it appear?
The Black Sun trailer is yet to be released, and no one knows when AMC will be releasing the series trailer. The series announcement came in late 2021; by now, we should have at least gotten updates on the development of the Black sun series. It is, however, not too late as it is barely a year, and there might be slim chances for the trailer to be released. If you are too anxious to wait for the upcoming series release, you can start by reading the Black Sun Novel by Roanhorse at only $13.99 on kindle.
