Syfy and Legendary TV have optioned author Seanan McGuire’s “Wayward Children” four-book series to develop into a TV series with Joe Tracz (“A Series of Unfortunate Events”) signing on to adapt.
The books center on a mysterious boarding school for students who have returned from trips to magical worlds where they were heroes or monsters and now have to readjust to being ordinary children.
All of them are looking for a way back to their fantasy realms, but when students start turning up dead, those who remain team up to catch the killer — lest none of them ever get to go home again.
McGuire’s series won Alex and Hugo honors in 2017 and is in the very early stages of development at Syfy.
