Assassin’s Creed, Netflix TV series loses showrunner Jeb Stuart
In a new interview with the website Collider, Jeb Stuart announced that he has left the role of showrunner of the Assassin’s Creed TV series. in production at Netflix for “a difference in viewings.”
Stuart is currently at work on the second season of Vikings: Valhalla, and he broke the news to Collider when asked about the status of Ubisoft’s work on the project. Apparently, Stuart’s vision was not the same as that of some executives on the production team.
“I think it was a bit of a transfer of executives from Los Angeles to London, which allowed the London group, which unfortunately had to inherit my vision of what (the series) was, to develop their own vision. So I think that’s fair. I know it’s going to be great when it comes out,” he said. “I think the guys at Ubisoft are fantastic. I think it’s a fantastic franchise. It was just a good, mutual time to move forward for both sides.”
The collaboration between Netflix and Ubisoft was announced in 2020, but as of today we have not even received the first details. Despite leaving the team, Stuart confirmed that the Assassin’s Creed series is still in production, but that a successor has yet to be chosen.
