The premise of the series reads: “Based on Matt Wagner’s groundbreaking comic book series, Grendel follows Hunter Rosu, a talented fencer, writer, and assassin as he goes to war with New York’s criminal underworld to avenge a lost love. . Why did you beat them when you could have joined them?”
Andrew Dabb will serve as writer and showrunner for Grendel. Andrew Dabb previously wrote for Supernatural and also took on the role of co-showrunner from season 12. In addition, Dabb is the writer of the upcoming Netflix series Resident Evil.
Grendel creator Matt Wagner said in a press release, “I couldn’t be more excited about the fact that the Grendel saga, one of the longest-running indie comic series, is finally being made into a series. I am particularly excited to see Abubakr Ali bring the Grendel/Hunter Rose character to life.”
