Netflix Picks Up The 39 Steps Starring Benedict Cumberbatch
The limited series will offer a modern take on Hitchcock’s classic film.

Netflix is officially bringing The 39 Steps to the small screen. The limited series will be based on novelist John Buchan’s 1915 thriller, which Alfred Hitchcock brought to life in his 1935 hit film starring Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll. Here’s everything we know about the show so far:

Netflix has officially signed on with the project.

According to Deadline, Anonymous Content, Chapter One Pictures, and SunnyMarch are teaming up to produce the series. Edward Berger (Your Honor) will direct and Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) will write the show.

Anonymous Content announced plans for the series in February and began exploring options with different networks. Berger, Smith, and Cumberbatch were already slated to work on it. In a report released in early April, Deadline officially revealed that the show will air on Netflix.

Benedict Cumberbatch will star as the lead role.
Cumberbatch (Sherlock, The Imitation Game) will play Richard Hannay and will also serve as an executive producer on the series. No further details about the cast have been shared publicly.

The story plays out in modern times.
The series will bring Buchan’s classic into the modern-day world, per Deadline. Additionally, the publication described the series as an “action-packed conspiracy thriller.” Further, Hannay, played by Cumberbatch, is “an unwitting pawn in a vast, global conspiracy to reset the world order: 39 steps that will change the world as we know it.”

Production is set to begin in 2022.
Deadline reports there will be at least six episodes, each one hour long, and production will start next year in Europe.
