The Kingkiller Chronicle TV show is dead at Showtime, but it’s hoping to live long enough to sing another day elsewhere.
The fantasy TV series, set a generation before the events of the first book in Patrick Rothfuss’s acclaimed novels, has been in development for years with the multi-talented Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Mary Poppins Returns) on board as both a creative producer and musical mastermind. (Music plays a large part in the books.) But now Showtime has let the project revert back to rights holder Lionsgate TV, and the company is on the hunt for a new home for The Kingkiller Chronicle.
