Indiana Jones TV Series Possibly Coming to Disney+
With “Indiana Jones 5” coming out in June 2023, Disney is now pursuing the development of an Indiana Jones TV series for Disney+, according to Variety.
Harrison Ford has already stated that his role as Indiana Jones in the upcoming film will be his last time playing the character, so Disney is exploring new ways to keep the franchise alive, according to sources.
It remains unclear if the storyline of this series would be a prequel to the films, set somewhere inside the franchise narrative, or following a totally new character rather than Henry Jones Jr.
If this series is developed, it would not be the first TV show about Indiana Jones. In 1992-1993, “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” aired on ABC. Harrison Ford made a cameo appearance in one episode.
George Lucas and Philip Kaufman created the Indiana Jones character, with Stephen Spielberg serving as director for the first four films in the franchise. The fifth film is directed by James Mangold. Collectively, the first four films have grossed nearly $1.3 billion worldwide.
