A new team of ghost hunters are making their way to The CW Network.
V. E. Schwab’s The Archived is currently being developed for the CW, according to Variety.
The team behind Jane the Virgin, writer Liz Scudlo, and creator and showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman, will be adapting the book series’s universe.
In the series, the eldest child in a family of ghost hunters, Bex has trained her entire life for the day she’ll take up the mantle of “the chosen one.” But when her dad dies and her local-weather-girl sister wakes up with the familial powers instead, these night-and-day sisters will have to figure out how to work together and save the world.
Author V.E. Schwab sounded off on the announcement:
Here’s the FASCINATING thing about this project: if you read the pitch, you’ll notice it doesn’t follow Wes and Mackenzie. They will definitely cameo, but it’s the library of the dead Liz and her team are focusing on, with a new set of Keepers.
