Those of you who grew up playing games in the 1990s may remember a quirky little series called Earthworm Jim. The series somewhat follows in the footsteps of other performers such as Sonic the Hedgehog, but it has set itself apart from those games with its fun, super fluid animations and “everything is good” approach to level design. Having said that, the series was essentially dead by the end of the decade, and subsequent attempts to bring the popular superhero back have been unsuccessful, at least for now. It’s not over yet Interplay Entertainment, the owner of Earthworm Jim right, don’t try. The company recently confirmed that they have TV series IP-based in the works.
Interplay Entertainment teamed up with APA to create the series, which will see Jim battle against threats across the galaxy. The drama will spice up the Earthworm Jim universe with new characters, and it will have planets that each have their own “race of anthropomorphic animals”. Throughout the show, Jim will try and “find his real home among the stars: an almost mythical planet called Earth.” The new series operates as part of Interplay’s efforts to “develop new film and TV projects based on their video game properties through their newly formed TV and studio division. ”
Time can be questionable
Finally decided to start a Earthworm Jim Drama series seems strange, because the franchise has still absent from the public consciousness for two decades. Although Interplay has a Earthworm Jim 4 the game is in development, which makes a TV show more affordable, the company currently only plans to release the new season on Intellivision Amico. The console has no release date nor a guarantee of success. With this in mind, it seems like the wrong time to release a TV movie adaptation. Though, for all we know, it could turn out to be a pretty solid show.
