One of the company’s most reliable relationships, Netflix and renowned author Harlan Coben, succeeds once more. The long-running Myron Bolitar series by Coben is being developed by the streaming service this time; it will be the first to not be a limited series and the first to be based in the US. As Coben confirmed to Deadline, no writers or directors are currently attached, and Coben himself is unsure about his own participation in the writing team.
Seven of Coben’s books have already been adapted into Netflix limited series, including one each from France and Spain (The Innocent, 2021), two from Poland (The Woods, 2020), three from the UK (Safe, 2018; The Stranger, 2020; Stay Close, 2021), two from Poland (The Woods, 2020); and one from Spain (The Innocent, 2020). (Gone For Good, 2021).
What is Myron Bolitar’s plot?
The Myron Bolitar novel series by Harlan Coben follows the life of the title figure, a former NBA player and sports agent. There are currently 11 novels in the series, so it would make sense for Netflix to begin with the first one. Additionally, similar to The Sandman, it’s feasible that Netflix will attempt to adapt two books per season, neatly linking them together. The series’ tagline is as follows:
Former NBA basketball player Myron is lanky and humble, and after having his career ended by a broken knee, he became a sports agent. He frequently plays detective for his clients when they have issues that need to be resolved due to his enormous heart and kind personality. Win, the billionaire best friend of Myron, and his coworker Esperanza frequently assist him with his cases. (Who wouldn’t want a best buddy who is a billionaire?) Mickey, another nephew of his, is the author of a young adult series. (His Uncle Myron occasionally stops by to lend a hand.)
Cast members of Myron Bolitar?
There are no cast members associated with the Netflix Myron Bolitar series as of November 2022. We’ll probably learn more in the upcoming months. Author Harlan Coben said he didn’t have any performers in mind when asked if he had any. Being completely honest, that has never come naturally to me. I can switch up the actors who play regular characters like Matt, who was portrayed by Mario Casas in Spain,
Adam, who was portrayed by Richard Armitage, or Cassie, who was portrayed by Cush Jumbo. Myron is far more difficult because of how well-defined an image people have of him. So, in reality, no actors spring to mind. They were talking about all the major famous movie actors of the day, and many years ago I had considered trying to turn Myron into a movie. Although they are all incredibly gifted, I couldn’t picture that guy as Myron. It will therefore be quite difficult. I have faith that Netflix will conduct a thorough search for candidates and identify the ideal match for us.
When will Myron Bolitar be available on Netflix?
The Netflix Myron Bolitar series is now in its very early stages of creation; not even screenplays have been written. They won’t start production for quite a while; this could happen as early as 2023.
It’s too soon to speak of a release date for the series because it’s still in the very early stages of development, but we could possibly predict sometime in 2024. Although the number of episodes for Myron Bolitare is unknown, we can probably anticipate a first season with at least 8 episodes.
