A Horizon TV Series is currently being developed by Netflix, called Horizon 2074. Sony confirmed the series back in May 2022. Although the television series was only briefly mentioned during the Sony Business Briefing, an event for investors, more and more details surfaced in the weeks following the announcement. Read on to learn everything we know so far about the Horizon Netflix Series.
What will be the official title of the Horizon Netflix Series be?
It is yet to be officially confirmed, but everything points towards ‘Horizon 2074‘ being the official title of the Horizon TV Adaption. GiantBomb’s Jeff Grubb was the first to mention the title, and the same title was later confirmed by the Directors Guild of Canada. Sony and Netflix haven’t commented on the title yet.
What is Horizon 2074 about?
If the rumors about the title are true, the TV Series will take us back to the year 2074. For reference, Horizon Zero Dawn takes place in 3020 and Horizon Forbidden West in 3041. A setting in the year 2074 would mean it takes place during or right after the downfall of human civilization, of which so far we’ve only seen the aftermath in the video games. According to the same rumors, part of the series will take place during Aloy’s time, so we’ll see two sides of the story.
It also seems the series is not a reboot for the series, nor a stand-alone adaption of the video games, but rather a direct tie-in to the canon from Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West, clarifying things that happened in the video games.
Who is working on Horizon 2074?
According to the Directors Guild of Canada, some very interesting people are involved in Horizon 2074. The list includes, but is not limited to, first assistant director Jack Boem (The Boys, What We Do in the Shadows), second assistant director Adam Bocknek (The Boys, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), and art director Michele Brady (The Expanse, Warehouse 13).
Who will play Aloy in the Horizon Netflix Series?
It is unconfirmed whether Aloy will even star in the Horizon tv series, but we can hardly imagine Horizon without her. If part of the series does indeed take place during the events of the video games, we can most certainly expect Aloy to make an appearance.
Aloy in the video games is based on the Dutch actress Hannah Hoekstra (see picture below). Although she mostly did Dutch productions, Hoekstra also featured in a few international productions, including Charlie’s Angels and How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast). Aloy was voiced by the more internationally renowned Ashly Burch, although she mostly did voice over work for video games like The Last of Us Part II, Borderlands, and Life is Strange. Whether one of the two actresses is involved in the Horizon TV Series, or if they will cast an entirely new face and voice, is currently unknown.
When will the Horizon Netflix Series come out?
It is unknown when the tv series will be released. So far, only the existence of tv adaption is confirmed, so it will take a while before we can actually watch the Horizon TV Series on our own television. If we had to guess, we say by the end of 2023.
Where can I watch the Horizon TV Series?
It seems Sony is specifically developing the series in partnership with Netflix. This will undoubtedly land Netflix the exclusive rights to steam the television series. Luckily, Netflix is available worldwide, so all Horizon fans will be able to tune it as soon as the Horizon TV Series airs.
Will there be a second season for the Horizon Netflix Series?
It is currently unknown whether the Horizon TV Series is meant as limited series, or an ongoing series.
