The 'Spiderwick Chronicles’ series is moving from Disney+ to Roku

„The Spiderwick Chronicles” series adaptation has found a new home on Roku.

The series was originally set to air on Disney+ before the streamer decided to ax it in August. The eight-episode show is based on the hit book series of the same name by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black. It will debut on The Roku Channel in early 2024.

The show’s official description says it’s „the coming-of-age story of the Grace family as they move from New York to Michigan to visit their family’s ancestral home. Upon arrival, the family not only uncovers the mysteries hidden within their great-grandfather’s Spiderwick estate, but also discovers a secret, fantastical world around them.”

As previously announced, Joy Bryant stars as Helen Grace, Noah Cottrell as Simon Grace, Leon Daniels as Jared Grace, Michaela Lee as Mallory Grace, Jack Dylan Crazer as the voice of Thimblettock, and Christian Slater as Mulgarath.

„It’s an honor to bring The Spiderwick Chronicles, the exciting adventure story led by the amazing Christian Slater and Joy Bryant, to The Roku Channel,” said Brian Tannenbaum, original president of Roku Media. „We can’t wait to introduce this exquisitely crafted series envisioned by a world-class creative team to millions of streamers.”

The series is produced by Paramount Television Studios and 20th Television. Aron Eli Coleite serves as showrunner and executive producer. Kate Coiro also produced and directed the first two episodes. Diderlizzi, Black, Ellen Goldsmith-Wain, Jeremy Bell, T.J. Goldberg, Julie Kane-Ritch and Grace Gilroy also executive produce. Paramount Global Content Distribution distributes the series internationally.
