The Watch is here. But it’s not a version of Ankh-Morpork’s infamous guard that you might have been envisioning when news of a new Discworld show first popped up.
We’ve been hearing tiny little bits of news about the BBC’s attempt to bring the world of Terry Pratchett’s beloved fantasy novels to life since the author’s passing in 2015, but now, the world of the Disc is taking a big step forward in its return to TV.
It’s a good time to be a Terry Pratchett fan. BBC Studios has announced that they have picked up Discworld and are planning on creating a six-part show based on the book series. Based on the working title, it could be the series that’s been in the works for years.
