Dune: The Sisterhood is in production, but is losing a co-showrunner


HBO Max recently began production on Dune: The Sisterhood, a prequel series to Dune. However in the last few hours, as reported exclusively by Deadline, Diane Ademu-John has declared that she will no longer be the co-showrunner of the series, but she will remain in the production as an executive producer. Alison Schapker , currently another co-showrunner on the series, will continue to play the role on her own.

Just in recent days, i.e. November 22, 2022, Renck announced the start of filming on Instagram through a post that states:

“On this day, we begin filming Dune: The Sisterhood for HBO Max. Through machinations that took place millennia before the story you all know, we descend into the coven that will one day be called the Bene Gesserit. Say it with me: 'I need not fear. Fear is the killer of the mind. Fear is the little death that leads to total obliteration.'”

About the TV series and other Dune projects

Set 10,000 years before the events of Dune, The Sisterhood chronicles the origins of the all-female pseudo-religious organization known as the Bene Gesserit . Based on the 2012 novel Sisterhood of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, the HBO Max series "follows the Harkonnen sisters as they battle the forces that threaten humanity's future and found the legendary cult known like Bene Gesserit.”

Dune: The Sisterhood will star Emily Watson as Valya Harkonnen, Shirley Henderson as Tula Harkonnen, Indira Varma as Empress Natalya, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Princess Ynez, Shalom Brune-Franklin in that of Mikaela, Faoileann Cunningham as her sister Jen, Aoife Hinds as her sister Emeline, Chloe Lea as Lila and finally Travis Fimmel as Desmond Hart.

At the moment, filming is also underway on the feature film Dune 2 , which is currently scheduled for release exclusively in cinemas on November 3, 2023 . The second part features the return of many actors already observed in the first part such as Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem. The sequel, however, will also feature newcomers such as Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Christopher Walken and Léa Seydoux .

The first part, directed by Denis Villeneuve , was a good success after its release in theaters and on HBO Max on October 22, 2021. The film was based on Frank Herbert's original 1965 novel of the same name, adapting roughly the first half. Villeneuve will also return to directing for the second part which will deal with the second half of Herbert's book. Finally, as regards  Dune: The Sisterhood , HBO Max has not yet revealed a release date on the streaming platform.
