A full series order of Dune: The Sisterhood was announced on June 10, 2019, to be produced by Legendary Television for WarnerMedia's new streaming service,[2][3] HBO Max.[4][5] The series will focus on the Bene Gesserit, and serve as a prequel to the 2021 film Dune.[1] Denis Villeneuve will direct and produce the series' pilot with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, and both will serve as executive producers alongside Byron Merritt, Kim Herbert, Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, the son of Frank Herbert.[6][7] Villeneuve said, "The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me. Focusing a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and inspiring but a dynamic setting for the television series."[8]

Shortly after its announcement, the project received criticism for its lack of female creatives except for Frank Herbert's granddaughter, Kim Herbert.[9][10] Dana Calvo was hired in July 2019 to serve as showrunner alongside Spaihts.[11][12] In November 2019, Spaihts left the series to focus on the film's sequel.[13][14] The Hollywood Reporter reported that Legendary Television was "not happy" with Spaihts's early work as showrunner and opted to remove him.[13]


The series is eyeing to begin filming on November 2, 2020, in Budapest and Jordan.[15]
