The Riftwar TV Show Is No Longer Happening

It looks like the Riftwar TV show is no longer happening. Author Raymond E. Feist broke the news himself on his blog Thursday, thanking those who’d worked on the adaptation.

“As is the case often in dealing with entertainment, plans often do not pan out,” he wrote. “I would like to publicly thank bcdf Pictures, especially Claude dal Fara and Brian Keady, for a series based on my work that I considered as fine a vision as I have seen, one far better than I would have realized by myself. The nature of the industry is that often great ideas do not arrive at the proper time. Perhaps down the road we might be able to revisit the concept. I wish everyone at bcdf nothing but success in the future and again thank them for their hard work and passion.”

The series was announced last September, when Deadline reported  that Feist’s Magician (split into Magician: Apprentice and Magician: Master in the U.S.), the first novel in The Riftwar Saga, had been optioned by BCDF, the company behind the upcoming TV adaptation of Marie Lu’s LegendAt the time, it was also announced that Fiction Riot would be creating “mobile content” based on the book, although it’s unclear if this project is still on the table.
