In May 2019, Hulu announced that they will be adapting a series from Stephen King’s The Eyes of the Dragon. The director of the show Seth Grahame-Smith was super excited regarding the show and so was the audience. The book is only one novel and people wanted to find out how the story will be stretched into an entire series of multiple seasons. But, it seems like there will not be any such thing. The Hulu planned series has been scrapped and is no longer under development. Grahame-Smith stated that the show has been canceled due to a lack of budget and the problems with staff.
