TV Spin-off for Once Were Warriors

Deadline Hollywood reports a TV series spin-off for Once for Warriors is in the works.

Once Were Warriors: Generations will be set in modern-day Auckland and Rotorua with a new generation of characters and stories, the trade site says.

According to producers, “political aspirations, financial schemes, cultural clashes, and a search for redemption are at the core of this series filtered through the distinctive Māori culture and the Heke family’s unforgiving past. It will be set against the backdrop of New Zealand’s multicultural society and the universal socio-economic tensions of the present day ….”

Warriors author Alan Duff is collaborating on the series with Wheel of Time producer Rick Selvage.

“Who can resist the power of a Once Were Warriors storyline told through the eyes of the rich indigenous Māori culture and the beauty that is New Zealand,” Selvage says.

“I was drawn to the passion in Alan’s storytelling and the exciting new modern world he has created with the Heke family, their personal challenges and ultimate triumph.”
