There's good news and bad news about the Suspiria TV series. The bad news is someone is making a Suspiria TV series. The good news is Bryan Fuller has already volunteered to make it.

Screen Daily is reporting that two sets of producers in France and Italy with companies by the names of Atlantique Productions and Cattleya are keen to create an English-language, 12-episode, one-hour episode series. The new TV series claims to be based both on the 1845 book Suspiria De Profundis by Thomas De Quincey, as well as Dario Argento's stunning horror classic, which the book inspired. But the synopsis actually doesn't sound anything like the book at all:

Suspiria De Profundis will be an English-language period horror series in which the author De Quincey is the lead character. Styled as a new Sherlock Holmes, the story will explore psychological fantasies of evil and attempt to solve fearful mysteries. It will be set in London and Rome at the turn of the 20th century.

On the plus side, Screen Daily is also saying that Argento will serve as the series’ artistic supervisor. So there's that. But the whole thing just sounds... not like Suspiria.

Plus, director Bryan Fuller has already thrown his hat into the ring. That doesn't mean he'll get the gig, but hey, if it helps you sleep at night:
