The Talisman is coming. After decades of anticipation, Amblin Television is bringing Stephen King and Peter Straub's epic fantasy tale, The Talisman, to long-form series for Netflix.

The Talisman tells the tale of 12-year-old Jack Sawyer as he sets off on an epic fantasy road-trip to save his dying mother’s life. To do so, he must find the Talisman, a powerful relic that can heal his mother and save the world. Jack’s quest criss-crosses two realities; the America we know and its dangerous, fantasy-world twin, “The Territories.”

Showrunner and writer of The Talisman is Curtis Gwinn (Stranger Things, The Walking Dead, The Leftovers). Executive producers are The Duffer Brothers/Monkey Massacre Productions (Stranger Things), Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey for Amblin Television, Stephen King, and Paramount Television Studios.
