There were rumors of this back during SDCC 2019. As quickly as the article was online, it was redacted. Now NYCC is upon us several months later and the rumors are swirling again.
Sources inside NYCC 2019 have divulged some details of the project.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Excellence has been optioned for Amazon Prime TV, but things are on the hush hush as things are not finalized yet. Comic book sales for this series have been doing very well and they have a very optimistic view going forward. Kirkman has asked retailers to keep up the good work and to look forward to other developments coming.
While this may be some time away, Amazon has been pumping out shows of late in an effort to beef up its inventory so as to compete with the likes of the new Disney streaming service. So their involvement with Skybound makes sense. It will be interesting to see what other comics get optioned.
