ABC is dipping into its (recent) past for its latest piece of development: a reboot of its 2011-15 drama Revenge.
The new project, which is in the early stages of development, will center on a Latinx lead character. It comes from original series producer Temple Hill and ABC Studios, with series creator Mike Kelley and How to Get Away With Murder veteran Joe Fazzio co-writing the script.
The story also has a connection to its predecessor: The central character, a young Latinx immigrant, will be guided by a character from the original series. The story follows the lead as she arrives in Malibu to take down a Sackler-esque pharmaceutical dynasty whose greed led to the murder of her biochemist mother, the destruction of her family and a global epidemic.
Just which character from the first series will be involved remains to be seen. No actors are attached to the project as of yet.
