Faith Erin Hicks’ Nameless City Trilogy is Making Its Way to Television

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Faith Erin Hicks talked a little about her comics trilogy, The Nameless City! And it looks like we might get to see the story on the small screen before too long…

Hicks told EW that Frederator Studios (Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors) approached her about turning the trilogy into a 12-episode miniseries, which would be due in fall of 2018:

“It’s exciting and a little scary. It’s my first time having a ‘Hollywood deal.’” Hicks told EW about the deal. “I always envisioned The Nameless City as a comic. It was always supposed to be a comic and it was super cool when Frederator and Recursion approached me about partnering to make this thing happen. It’s a nice bonus.”

The second book in the series, The Stone Heart, is already in stores. Her protagonists Rat and Kai are on to new adventures now, in more than one format! In the interview, Hicks talks about the research that went into the series, the reason why she chose not to add a supernatural element to the story, and what her biggest influences have been on the project. (She also mentions that her mother has started shipping her characters, which is just about the cutest thing we’ve ever heard.) Head on over to Entertainment Weekly to get the scoop!
