Assassin’s Creed Netflix series: Early plot details, possible setting, more

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Netflix adaptation of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Assassin’s Creed is one of the greatest gaming franchises of all time. Since the release of the first game in 2007, the series has made new games almost every year. In October 2020, Netflix announced it was developing an Assassin’s Creed TV series, with a mobile game also being created by the streaming service.

This isn’t the first time Assassin’s Creed has ventured into live-action territory, however. In 2016, an Assassin’s Creed film was made – with actors Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard as the main actors of the film. Unfortunately, the strip was a critical and commercial failure, with the result that all follow-up projects and sequels were scrapped.

Now Ubisoft is gearing up for another try, but this time in the form of a live-action series.

Here are all the details we know so far about the plot, cast, and setting of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Netflix show.


Does the Assassin’s Creed TV series have a release date?

There is currently no confirmed release date for the Assassin’s Creed TV series. However, as part of the Ubisoft Forward event a few weeks ago, series producer Marc-Alexis Côté gave an update on the show’s development.

“The development is still in its infancy,” Côté began. “But I can confirm that we are developing the Netflix series together with Ubisoft Film & Television, Netflix, of course, and an insanely talented showrunner, Jeb Stuart. It will be an epic, cross-genre, live-action adaptation of our video game series.”

Plot details and setting predictions for the show

So far, there are little to no details about the plot or setting of what fans should expect from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed show. However, Netflix has described the show as a “genre-bending live-action” adaptation of the popular gaming series.

The games’ main narrative often blends a modern setting with a historical one, with Ancient Greece, the American Revolution, and Ancient Egypt all serving as backdrops for Assassin’s Creed titles. When Netflix describes the show as “genre-bending,” that change in attitude might be what they’re referring to.

The Assassin’s Creed franchise has visited many historical locations and time periods.

At the time of writing, it’s still unknown if the TV show will follow the game’s narrative and incorporate existing characters, or tell an entirely new and new story set in the AC Universe.

Is there a TV show trailer of Assassin’s Creed?

There are currently no trailers, images, or leaked footage for the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Assassin’s Creed. Since the show is still in the early stages of development, fans will likely have to wait a while before getting their first glimpse of the series.
