As yet, it claims there are no networks tipped to broadcast any new TV series and "not yet a timeline" for when it will hit screens.

Yet it does suggest sources have claimed "author Meyer is expected to be involved in the television adaptation."

The first Twilight movie was released in 2008 with the final instalment, Breaking Dawn Part Two, released in 2012.
