A Court of Thorns and Roses TV Adaptation for Hulu Up In The Air

The hottest - dare I say spiciest - genre of novel lately is the romantasy. And one of the biggest books in the genre, "A Court of Thorns and Roses," is apparently running into some hurdles for a planned Hulu TV adaptation. Let's backtrack a little here to give you the setup. First, let's get into romantasy. If this is new term for you, buckle up, it's about to get wild. Blending romantic entanglements of all sorts in high fantasy worlds, romantic fantasy is enjoying quite a moment in the sun currently.  Tons of notable romantasy series are sweeping social media, with devout fans gushing all over TikTok and beyond.  Entire Etsy shops are devoted to the most popular among the movement.  This is no Harry Potter, folks. One of the most popular series at the moment would have to be A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.  The series. consisting of five novels, centers around nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre.  According to Goodreads.com " When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world. At least, he’s not a beast all the time." So, with this amazing plot and legions of devoted fans, it would seem like this would be a slam dunk to turn into a TV series.  Hulu had the same thought and jumped right on it! However, there may be trouble on the horizon in TV land. After announcing an adaptation was coming for Hulu back in March of 2021, things got quiet. Not fully surprising, as Maas was new to writing for TV, and the writer's strike came along in 2023. But reports this week had some saying the plug was pulled on the show completely, but Entertainment Weekly said that's not the case. The internet is never short on people's opinions and theories and the current thought is that the author, Sarah J. Maas, may not be used to spearheading a team of writers for a show as it's a huge left turn from being a solo writer on a novel. Sheesh, no pressure, right? https://www.tiktok.com/@cotec.03/video/7220598337014123782?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc&web_id=7322415507784255006
