A Splinter Cell Netflix series is in the works!

An agreement has been reached between Netflix and Ubisoft to produce an animated series of the popular Tom Clancy video game, Splinter Cell. So far, two 16-episode seasons have been reported to feature on the streaming service, with more information still to come.

Derek Kolstad, widely renowned for his work as a creator of the ultra-popular John Wick franchise, has been linked as the writer/producer of the new Splinter Cell series. The fan-favorite Ubisoft game has spawned seven titles as well as multiple novels since its inception in 2002. And now it will be an animated series.

With the imminent release of Tom Clancy's Elite Squad mobile game, there is a clear want from the fans for Splinter Cell content.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell storyline follows the life of Navy SEAL Sam Fisher, as he's recruited to work for the Third Echelon Division of the NSA. Focused on stealth, the game is centered around performing Spec Ops missions without being detected. It will be interesting to see how close the plot of the series is to the game itself.
