Quentin Tarantino TV series set to drop in 2023: Here’s what we know

Cult film director, Quentin Tarantino has been discussing his plans to jump to the small screen next year in the form of a TV series. As the director of some of the most notable titles in cinematic history, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill and not to mention the legendary Pulp Fiction, this mysterious tv project is set to make waves.

He dropped this titbit during a New York City event for the release of his upcoming book Cinema Speculation, in conversation with film critic Elvis Mitchell.

The director revealed of the tv series that he will be working on the favoured 'limited series,' format of 8 episodes, the series will tentatively begin to shoot in 2o23.

What else do we know?

There were some other golden nuggets unearthed during this conversation regarding other projects that Tarantino may or may not be working on. For one, there is the play that never was which he wrote before the release of 2019's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

When asked about the Marvel franchise, he revealed he would never direct a film but dropped the comic book he'd choose to adapt if given the opportunity which would be Marvel’s Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos.

There are a few unknowns surrounding the project, but if the series is going to be anything like Tarantino's tv show directorial juncture on that one episode of ER, we're excited.

Why now?

This project comes at an interesting moment in Tarantino's career. The director has previously announced his intentions to make 10 solo, feature-length original films before retiring. He is currently at number nine. Assuming we can't count this series in the lineup, whatever film comes next will likely be his last.
