Netflix’s Assassin’s Creed Series Has Lost Its Showrunner, Probably Because Of A Templar Plot

Speaking with Collider, Jeb Stuart revealed that he is “no longer involved” with Netflix’s upcoming “Assassin’s Creed” series, claiming that it was a mutual decision which came into being after the executive team behind the project switched up, as Hollywood is often wont to do. Stuart told Collider that:

“I think it was a little bit of a move of executives from LA to London, and it allowed the London group who, unfortunately, had to inherit my vision of what it was instead of getting to develop their own vision. So I think that’s fair. I know it’s going to be great whenever it comes out. I think the Ubisoft guys are fantastic. I think it’s a terrific franchise. It was just a good, mutual time to move on for both sides.”

In his wake, a new showrunner for “Assassin’s Creed” has yet to be announced. As there is no definitive release date for the Netflix series, it’s likely that such choices will be shared at a more relaxed pace. Netflix and Ubisoft’s partnership on “Assassin’s Creed” is a major one, with the original announcement stating that “the deal includes multiple different series, the first of which will be a genre-bending live-action epic, while the others will be animated and anime adaptations.” A mobile game has since been announced as well, so it looks like Netflix is building up a major “Assassin’s Creed” universe similar to its other big video game IP, “The Witcher.” That kind of planning takes time.

Of course, the story could also just be a cover-up for the Templars taking a shot at Stuart’s life. Those rascally cultists will stop at nothing to hinder the Brotherhood.
