It seems that the era of love triangles, toxic love, and centuries-old vampires is coming back as Lionsgate Television starts developing a new adaptation of Twilight, this time as a series. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news and also stated that the author Stephenie Meyer is in talks to return in some capacity with Wyck Godfrey and former Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig attached to the project as executive producers.

If you were a teenager or of any age for that matter in the 2000s you definitely know what Twilight is about. The first Twilight book came out in 2005 and followed a high school named Bella, who has recently moved to town to live with her father in Forks, Washington. After starting at a new school Bella becomes interested in a mysterious student named Edward Cullen, who is a vampire and so is his whole family. Throughout the story, Bella becomes an important part of the Cullen family.
