Time Bandits is an upcoming Apple Tv series written by Jemaine Clement, Iain Morris, and Taika Waititi. The show will be based on Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin’s novel of the same name. It explores the story of a young boy who joins a group of thieves to help them steal different treasures in different parts of the world. He knows his way around history and different locations around the earth, making him an essential asset to the team. The series order came in 2018, and almost five years later, here is everything we know about the upcoming show.
Time Bandits Season 1 Release Date: When can we expect it?
Unfortunately, there is no official release for the upcoming series. We are unsure when the series will be released, but we are optimistic it will be sometime this year. Production started in New Zealand in late 2022 and is expected to wrap up in 2023. The series will consist of ten episodes, each telling the story of a rag-tag group of thieves. If filming and posts production wraps up early enough, the earliest you should expect to binge on the series is mid-2023 or just before the year ends.
Time Bandits Season 1 Plot:
The details of the series plot are vague at the moment. We, however, have a description of the coming series, which will revolve around a group of thieves who travel through time and space. The new group recruits Tuck, the 11-year-old who knows his way around history. The upcoming series could explore how Tuck will acclimate to the group and whether he is similar to them or will be like the group loner. It could also focus more on the group’s specialty, what kind of things they steal, and which group of people they steal from.
