Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Series Reboot Update Given by Showrunner

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo TV reboot has received an exciting update following last year’s announcement that the planned project is currently in development at Amazon MGM Studios. The reboot was announced over three years ago.

In an interview with ScreenRant, series showrunner Veena Sud expressed her excitement over bringing Stieg Larsson’s best-selling psychological thriller novels to television.

“I have a classic television show coming out for Amazon, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, another angry woman out to get the bad guys and the monsters. So, I’m really excited about that, bringing it to television after 15–20 years,” said Sud. 

She continued, “It’s been kind of in the stratosphere, and there’s so much to talk about today that was relevant back then — when Stieg Larsson first published the books, the trilogy — about female rage, about abuse, about the emergence of racism, white nationalism. All of the things, 20 years later, here we are, it’s super relevant today. So far, just pursuing kind of outlier women has always been the thing I love, so I’m really excited about that.”

What to expect in the new Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?

While Sud couldn’t reveal much about the upcoming series reboot of the popular franchise, she welcomes fans and a new generation of viewers to “female rage,” saying that the series will introduce “a new version of a woman who just refuses to follow the rules.”

Nothing much has been revealed yet about the series reboot aside from the comments Sud has provided, but it was previously reported that the show will be a standalone story about Lisbeth Salander. 

Best known as the “Millennium Trilogy,” Larsson first released the first installment in 2005. The book then spawned two sequels, including The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. The novel series has also inspired a slew of movies and television shows, such as the 2009 Noomi Rapace-led feature, the 2010 English remake starring Rooney Mara, and the critically panned The Girl in the Spider’s Web, among others.
