The Dune TV series destined for HBO Max, Dune: The Sisterhood, is going to need a new showrunner. Jon Spaihts, who wrote the script for the upcoming Dune movie from director Denis Villeneuve, was set to serve as showrunner for the tie-in TV series, but that’s no longer the case.

We’re just a few days away from the launches of both AppleTV+ and Disney+, but there is still at least one more major player waiting to enter the streaming wars after those two: HBO Max.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are going all-in on Dune. Not only are they releasing a huge, star-studded movie adaptation from director Denis Villeneuve, they’re also moving forward with a Dune TV series for their upcoming streaming service. Titled Dune: The Sisterhood, the show will be set in the same universe as the film, and focus on a mysterious order of women. And for the sake of synergy, Villeneuve is also set to direct the pilot.
