Japanese gaming fans will soon be treated to a live-action series adaptation of SEGA‘s Lost Judgment.

A sequel to Judgment — which itself was remastered for the PlayStation 4 last year — Lost Judgment marked the return of Japanese pop icon Takuya Kimura as Takayuki Yagami, a disgraced lawyer who became a private detective. According to Nikkan Gendai, the video game franchise is now being adapted into a television series currently named Unjudged, with Kimura himself possibly tied to the project. While details remain scarce at this point, there are also reports that a movie will be made in parallel.

The Japanese publication also notes, however, that Kimura is no longer interested in making a third season of BG Personal Bodyguard, a popular crime drama in the country which debuted in 2018 and followed up with a second season two years later. Similarly, despite the massive success of legal drama Hero, Kimura also refused to do a third season, so it remains to be seen whether he’ll really return to the Judgment franchise for the third time.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix has teased the Korean remake of Money Heist.
