Hulu’s ACOTAR Series Is ‘Still in Development,’ Ronald D. Moore Says — But How Far Along Are They?

After much fan speculation over whether Hulu’s upcoming adaption of the fantasy book series A Court of Thorns and Roses (abbreviated as ACOTAR) was still in the works, we finally have an update.

Ronald D. Moore, who is developing the show with author Sarah J. Maas, confirms that the show is, indeed, still on Hulu’s to-do list.

“It’s still in development,” Moore said while promoting the upcoming season of Apple TV+’s For All Mankind (premiering Nov. 10). “We’ve written some scripts, and we’re just sort of waiting. I think the whole town is kind of waiting to see if we have actors before things really move forward, but it’s still in development.”

ACOTAR centers on Feyre, a huntress who kills a wolf and finds herself in a magical land she never thought possible. Additional books in the immensely popular series include A Court of Mist and Fury, A Court of Wings and Ruin, the novella A Court of Frost and Starlight and A Court of Silver Flames.

The show was first announced in 2021, with Maas writing in a now-deleted Instagram post, “So, it’s official (and thank you, Josh, for accidentally spilling the beans! 😂): Ron Moore (creator of Outlander and one of my creative idols) and I will co-adapt ACOTAR as a tv show for Hulu! I’m currently hard at work writing the pilot with Ron (!!!!!), and while there is SO much more news to share with you guys about bringing this series to life, it just feels so great to finally be able to talk about this! Stay tuned for more details!!”

While there hasn’t been a casting announcement just yet, Stargirl alum Brec Bassinger has already made it clear that she’d love to portray Feyre’s sister Elain in the show. “I’m not fiery enough for Nesta. I don’t present old enough for Feyre,” she previously told TVLine. “I feel like I’d make a good Elain, but I’ll be whoever.” (Additional reporting by Vlada Gelman)
