Quentin Tarantino to mark major TV debut with limited series, fans say 'GOAT will peak once again'
Quentin Tarantino will be returning to TV for the first time since 2005 and fans can't keep calm about it
Quentin Tarantino is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and it doesn’t come as a shock that almost all current filmmakers try to take inspiration from his past projects. But if you are a fan of Tarantino too, you know his time as director is coming to an end because the filmmaker has already made it clear that he will be just making 10 movies in his career. His latest movie, ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, was his ninth as a director, and fans can’t seem to fathom that Tarantino’s next movie will be his last. However, we have some news that will surely make you happy. Even though we don’t know what his tenth movie will be about, we do know that his upcoming project is not a movie. Yes, you heard it right.
Before donning the director’s hat for the last time as a filmmaker, the ‘Pulp Fiction’ helmer will be trying his luck in directing a limited series. The news was confirmed when the director, while promoting his new book ‘Cinema Speculation’ at an event, talked about his future projects and revealed that he is set to return to the world of television, looking to shoot an eight-episode series in 2023, per IndieWire.
As of now, we don’t have any information on the project, but if he moves forward with the projects then it won’t be the first time that Tarantino will be directing a TV series. The director helmed an episode of ‘ER’, titled ‘Motherhood’, in 1995 while he returned to direct an episode of ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ in 2005. The acclaimed filmmaker has never made an entire TV series in his career and it will be interesting to see what it will be based on. However, in February, it was reported that the filmmaker might be working on FX’s revival of ‘Justified’, but it’s still yet to be seen if the project is moving forward with him or without him.
The news of Tarantino directing a limited series made everyone excited and people can’t seem to wait for more details. Meanwhile, there were some who just prayed that this project moves forward because it will be riveting to see Tarantino getting more time with the story and characters. One of the fans wrote, “We will be watching.” Another fan wrote, “Will be worth the wait!” Another social media user said, “Yes!!!! I adore the extended cut of The Hateful Eight (and TH8 is my favorite Tarantino film) so I'm really excited to see him get more time to flesh out his characters and let them interact more.”

On the other hand, there were many who wanted the director to direct ‘Bounty Law’ or a sequel to ‘Django’. One fan noted, “Please, God let it be Bounty Law.” Another social media user wrote, “I hope it’s something original but if not a Bounty Law series or straight-up sequel to Django would rock.” Another fan tweeted, “Hope he still directs an episode of the ‘Justified’ revival.”

Tarantino's return to TV makes a lot of sense after he said that the ‘current movie era’ is the ‘worst in Hollywood history’ because of the obsession people have with superhero movies.
