Disney+ is reportedly planning a TV spinoff for the iconic adventurer Indiana Jones.

According to Variety, House of Mouse and Lucasfilms have been in talks about the idea of bringing Indiana Jones (A.K.A Dr Henry Walton) to the streaming platform in a TV show and now, they are in search of a writer.

It’s not known what the spin-off would entail or whether it would centre around the iconic character or focus on someone new entirely, but hopefully, we’ll get some more details once a scriptwriter is found.

This wouldn’t be the first time Indiana Jones took to the small screen either, after ABC made a TV show about the character for two seasons with The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles in the early 90s.

In the meantime, the latest movie about the adventurer is set to hit cinemas next year with Harrison Ford back in one of his most legendary roles.

The movie is expected to premiere in the summer and will also star Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Indy’s goddaughter, Helen.

However, it sounds like this will be Ford’s last outing as Indiana Jones after comments he made at the D23 conference earlier this year.

Speaking about the new movie, the actor hinted he would be putting the character to bed and said: "I'm delighted to be here again, and maybe for the… no, not me. This is it! I will not fall down for you again. But thank you so much."

He added: “Indiana Jones movies are about mystery and adventure, but they’re also about heart and I’m really, really happy that we have a really human story to tell, as well as a movie that will kick your ass.”

So, if this TV series does get the green light, it doesn’t look like Ford will have anything to do with it.
