The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this new Aeon Flux live-action series. Those shorts were followed up with five additional short-form animated episodes in 1992, and in 1995, MTV ordered a 10-episode season of half-hour episodes as its own stand-alone series. He'll be joined by executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, the veteran film and television producer, who serves as EP for The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead. Reboots are definitely in and MTV are looking to bring back Aeon Flux, although this time it will be live-action TV. But after the critical and commercial disappointment of the big-screen Aeon Flux, MTV is having another go at it - this time, on its home turf. The show was created by animator Peter Chung, and is set in the year 7698, in the aftermath of a global environmental crisis that wiped out almost the entire planet, except for two border cities in what was previously referred to as Eastern Europe.

Aeon Flux is making a comeback.

The series is set in a future dystopian world where a young assassin teams up with a group of rebel biohackers to save humanity, and becomes known as the hero Aeon Flux.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Davis has been hired to write the script and executive produce the new Aeon Flux series. It also had a live-action movie, but we don't talk about that.


The less said about the feature film Aeon Flux, the better.

The 2005 feature starring Theron and co-starring Frances McDormand and produced by MTV Films, did not fare well either critically or financially, earning just $52.3 million worldwide. The movie has a miserable 9% on Rotten Tomatoes and couldn't even make back its $62 million budget at the box office. The animated Aeon Flux series was well liked by critics and fans, and Davis' Teen Wolf was widely beloved by MTV audiences throughout its six season run on the cable network.

Hopefully, this live-action TV series revival will have better luck.
