This is great news for us horror fans as Hellraiser has always been a favorite of die hard horror movie fans. The details on the show are relatively vague at this time but what we do know is that the TV series will be directed by David Gordon Green (Halloween, Halloween Kills).
The writing and backbone of the stories will come from Michael Dougherty who has penned trick r treat.
So we have two all new Hellraiser productions on the horizon the original Hellraiser remake coming to the silver screen while the Hellraiser television show on HBO will make it’s own path and story they are not connected at all. Thus creating two Hellraiser universe’s much like how the recent Halloween movies did not incorporate the Rob Zombie remakes.
The idea is to create an elevated continuation and expansion of the well-established Hellraiser mythology. It is by no means a remake, but rather assumes the past mythology to be a given. The centerpiece remains Pinhead, the pin cushion-headed merciless leader of the Cenobites, the formerly humans-turned-demons that live in an extra-dimensional realm and are activated through a puzzle box called the Lament Configuration. The Cenobites come from hell to harvest human souls and keep balance between good and evil.
