Splinter Cell Animated Series, Helmed By John Wick Writer, Coming To Netflix

While fans continue waiting for another game, Sam Fisher will appear again 16 episodes across two seasons.


Splinter Cell, the long-running stealth-action franchise developed by Ubisoft, is getting its own animated Netflix adaptation, according to Variety. The first season is in development and helmed by John Wick writer Derek Kolstad.

Two seasons have already reportedly been ordered, encompassing a total of 16 episodes across them. There's no indication yet if the series will adapt stories from some of the games, or whether series stalwart Michael Ironside will be reprising his role as Sam Fisher. Ironside was last involved with the series in Splinter Cell: Conviction, having been replaced in the most recent entry, 2013's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. He later returned as Fisher in multiple cameo appearances across other franchises.
