A Court of Thorns and Roses TV show news has been arriving slowly but surely since the announcement that the popular Sarah J. Maas fantasy series was coming to Hulu. The first A Court of Thorns and Roses book picked up steam on TikTok, and the BookTok community made ACOTAR and its sequels quick bestsellers. There are four more books in the ACOTAR series, with the most recent being A Court of Silver Flames, her first book mostly geared toward adult readers.
A Court of Thorns and Roses follows a 19-year-old named Feyre who meets a wolf, a moment that puts her in danger with the fae. She ends up in a magical kingdom, is held prisoner, and soon starts to fall for her jailor. However, he has great secrets of his own. This led to Hulu picking up the ACOTAR series and bringing in Ronald D. Moore (Outlander) to co-adapt A Court Of Thorns And Roses with author Sarah J. Maas herself. Though little else is known, it is already one of the most anticipated literary adaptations in a long time.
