Feminist Ghost Hunter Series, The Archived COMING SOON CW

Supernatural might be coming to an end later this season, but The CW appears to already be searching for its next paranormal series. On Tuesday, Variety revealed that the network has begun developing a live-action adaptation of V.E. Schwab’s The Archived book series. The series will be developed by Jane the Virgin and Switched at Birth alum Liz Sczudlo, and executive produced by Jane the Virgin creator and showrunner Jennie Snyder.

Focus on ghost hunters family 

The Archived will focus on a ghost hunters family. The eldest child, Bex, has trained her whole life for the day she will take up the mantle of “the chosen one.” But when her father dies and her local-weather-girl sister wakes up with the family powers instead, these sisters will have to figure out how to work together and save the world.

The tweet about the series


The series will draw inspiration from Schwab’s books The Archived and The Unbound, as well as the short story, Leave the Window Open. Schwab took to Twitter to announce the news, and update fans on what’s next for the series’ journey to the small screen.

Also yeah, it’s being positioned to potentially take over from Supernatural so hahahahaha no pressure there.

Sczudlo will serve on the series as a writer and executive producer, with executive producers from Urman and Joanna Klein. As part of a general agreement with Urman and Klein’s Sutton St. Productions banner, CBS Television Studios will produce.


While there’s no telling what the future holds for The Archived, the news of it comes just a few weeks before the beginning of The CW’s 2019-2020 season. ]
