Bryan Fuller Developing ‘Amazing Stories’ Revival with NBC
Hannibal boss Bryan Fuller wants to fans to experience a new round of Amazing Stories and is working with NBC to develop a revival of the 1985 series.
Entertainment Weekly broke the news, reporting that “Fuller will executive produce and write a pilot script for the project – an hourlong weekly anthology series telling fantastic, strange and supernatural stories.”
CAN YOU TELL AN #AmazingStories STORY IN 140 CHARACTERS OR LESS? OR RATHER 125 CHARACTERS OR LESS ON ACCOUNT OF THE #AmazingStories HASHTAG.

The original series ran from 1985 to 1987 and was executive produced by Steven Spielberg (whom EW has stated “is not involved in the reboot).
The anthology series format is becoming an increasingly popular one, with hit series True Detective, Fargo and American Horror Story all having adopted the format. The main difference between Amazing Stories and most of the anthology series, however, is that each episode will be standalone, like The Twilight Zone, as opposed to each season.
The new series will mark Bryan’s return to the network after the cancellation of Hannibal, which ran for three seasons.
