Upgrade Sequel Series Headed To TV

Leigh Whannell’s 2018 Blumhouse sci-fi thriller Upgrade is getting a TV series sequel.

Co-created and executive produced by Whannell and Tim Walsh (Treadstone) who serves as showrunner. Whannell, Upgrade the series picks up a few years after the events of the film and broadens the universe with an evolved version of STEM and a new host – imagining a world in which the government repurposes STEM to help curb criminal activity.

The sequel series marks Whannell’s first dive into the world of television after keeping his eyes on film for over 15 years and is the first project to come out of the first-look film and TV deal he recently inked with Blumhouse, who he had already worked together with for The Invisible Man and Insidious franchise.
