It’s been reported that Netflix will turn Japanese ghost movie franchise Ju-On into an original series next year. Originally remade in America as The Grudge, the series adaptation will lean closer to the original J-Horror classic, with Sho Miyake serving as director.

Netflix currently has a page dedicated to the upcoming series, where it teases the following: “The J-Horror classic franchise Ju-On was actually based on real events that occurred over four decades – and the truth is even more terrifying.” The show was originally announced during a Netflix Japan event, Ramen Para Dos reports.

There’s also a remake of The Grudge in the works with Sam Raimi returning to produce it, as he’s done with the original American version. According to director Nicolas Pesce, “It’s a very different take on The Grudge than you know it from the past.”

Expect to see the Ju-On series debut sometime in Spring 2020.

In other entertainment news, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is being adapted as a Netflix series.
