Damn, right when I thought I would be done signing up for streaming services. Today, it has been announced that a live-action Speed Racer series is in the works at Apple and with J.J. Abrams producing.

From Variety, here’s what they reported:

A “Speed Racer” live-action series is in the works at Apple with J.J. Abrams onboard as an executive producer, Variety has learned.

Apple has given the project, which has been in the works for a considerable amount of time, a series order. Ron Fitzgerald and Hiram Martinez are attached to write and executive produce in addition to serving as co-showrunners. Abrams will executive produce under his Bad Robot banner. Warner Bros. Television is the studio, where Bad Robot is under an overall deal.

I’ve been a fan of Speed Racer since I was a little kid. Loved the show, enjoyed the spin-off on Nickelodeon, had fun with the live-action film, etc. I think this is the perfect time for Speed Racer to return, and with the info given, I have a lot of faith that this series will be great.
