“Sisterhood” was created, written and produced by Diana Ademu-John, who will also co-host the show along with Alison Shapker.

Villeneuve is also the executive producer of the series along with John Speights, Scott Z. Burns, Matthew King, John Cameron, Kate Collins and Brian Herbert, as well as Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert, who serve as executive producers of Frank Herbert’s estate. .

Filming for “Dune: Part Two” officially began this summer, after the film was officially announced last October after the first film earned over $40 million at the U.S. box office in its opening weekend.

Dune also won six Oscars, including Best Sound, Visual Effects, Artist, Music, Editing, and Cinematography.
