It is time to prepare yourself for Amazing Stories. The Steven Spielberg series now has a premiere date. It will arrive in March, and fans are learning more about the new anthology series, who has the men that were behind Once Upon a Time, at the helm.
This series is a re-imagining of the series which aired for two seasons in the 1980s. Each episode will take viewers into a different story.
Apple TV+ revealed more about the series revival in a press release. Check that out below.
“Apple TV+’s highly anticipated original series, executive produced by visionary, award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg, will make its global debut on Friday, March 6, exclusively on Apple TV+.
A reimagining of the original anthology series, each episode of Amazing Stories will transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today’s most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.
Showrunners for the anthology are Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (Lost, Once Upon a Time), and episode directors include Chris Long (The Americans, The Mentalist), Mark Mylod (Succession, Game of Thrones), Michael Dinner (Unbelievable, Sneaky Pete), Susanna Fogel (Utopia, Play By Play), and Sylvain White (Stomp The Yard, The Rookie).
“Amazing Stories is a beloved show that has captured our imaginations, and we couldn’t be more excited to share its next thrilling iteration with a global audience of all ages on Apple TV+,” said Matt Cherniss, Apple’s head of Development.
Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, co-presidents of Amblin Television, said: “Alongside our partners Universal TV and our showrunners Eddy and Adam, we’re honored to bring a new anthology of ‘Amazing Stories’ to audiences on Apple TV+, which serves as the perfect platform for us to deliver the emotionally engaging, wondrous tales that families can enjoy and experience together.”
The first image from the series provides a glimpse at “The Rift,” one of five episodes that will debut on March 6. “The Rift” is directed by Mark Mylod and stars Kerry Lynne Bishé, Whitney Coleman, Trisha Mashburn, Austin Stowell, Edward Burns and Juliana Canfield.
Talent from additional episodes includes Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner, Teen Wolf), Victoria Pedretti (You), Josh Holloway (Lost, Yellowstone), Sasha Alexander (Rizzoli & Isles, Shameless) and in his final role before passing away last October, Robert Forster.
