“The Spiderwick Chronicles” series adaptation has found a new home at Roku, moving from Disney+ after they scrapped it in August.
Roku announced it has acquired the exclusive U.S. rights to the fantasy adventure series. The eight-episode show, based on the hit book series of the same name, will debut on The Roku Channel in early 2024. Brian Tannenbaum, head of originals for Roku Media, shared: “It is an honor to bring ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles,’ a spectacular adventure-filled story led by the incredible Christian Slater and Joy Bryant, exclusively to The Roku Channel. We cannot wait to introduce this exquisitely crafted series, imagined by a world-class creative team, to millions of streamers.”
The official synopsis of the show described the series as a “coming-of-age story of the Grace Family, as they move from New York to Michigan and into their family’s ancestral home. Upon arrival, the family not only uncovers mysteries hidden inside their great grandfather’s Spiderwick Estate, but also discovers a secret, fantastical world around them.”
The cast of ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles” includes Joy Bryant as Helen Grace, Noah Cottrell as Simon Grace, Lyon Daniels as Jared Grace, Mychala Lee as Mallory Grace, Jack Dylan Grazer as the voice of Thimbletack, and Christian Slater as Mulgarath.
