Tomb Raider anime in the works at Netflix
Fresh off the heels of Lovecraft Country’s Misha Green taking the reigns of the live-action sequel to Tomb Raider, Netflix has an announcement for their own.
In a tweet and a press release, Netflix announced a Tomb Raider anime series is currently in development. While we don’t have a release window for the series, it will follow the events after the rebooted Tomb Raider trilogy of games.

The series will be written by Tasha Huo, who is also working on The Witcher spinoff, The Witcher: Blood Orange.
While Lara Croft was introduced in the 1990s as a complete and skilled explorer, adventurer, and master of combat, the Tomb Raider series was rebooted in 2013 focusing on Croft’s early years and first adventures. She’s not toting the twin Glocks, she’s vulnerable, and in the midst of learning more about the world.
