Netflix Orders Mark Millar’s The Magic Order to Series


James Wan (Aquaman, Furious 7) and Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking, Sierra Burgess is a Loser) have joined Mark Millar as executive producers of the new Netflix series The Magic Order.

Wan will direct the debut episode and Beer will serve as writer/showrunner for the series. The Magic Order was created in-house at Netflix by Millar and later turned into a comic book, written by Millar and illustrated by the legendary Marvel artist Olivier Coipel, based on designs created by the team at Netflix.

The first issue of this series was the highest-selling new comic book launch in almost 20 years and the graphic novel, collecting the first six issues, has just reached stores.

The Magic Order centers on five families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness—unless the darkness gets them first.
