Netflix is bringing pocket monsters to real life, developing a live-action Pokémon series. Variety reports that the streamer is in early development of the series, with Joe Henderson (Lucifer) set to write and executive produce.

The report notes that the series will be “akin to” Detective Pikachu, which released in theaters in 2019 and became a hit for Warner Bros. and Legendary. There’s no word on whether “akin to” means it will be similar in style, or whether it will just be live-action like that one was.

Netflix has become the home to several Pokemon properties in the US, including Pokemon: Indigo League and Pokemon Journeys.
