Even though “Dune: The Sisterhood” has been in development for a couple of years now, HBO Max has not provided any official release date or hints regarding the progress of the production. As such, the absolute earliest that fans should expect to see “Dune: The Sisterhood” is probably the latter half of 2022, with a 2023 arrival date more likely.
While there have been rumors about an accompanying prequel series to the new adaptation of “Dune” for some time, “Dune: The Sisterhood” became a reality when Deadline reported that WarnerMedia had authorized a straight-to-series order for the show. However, the project sat in limbo for a while, with the only significant news coming through the pipeline being the departure of prospective showrunner Jon Spaihts, via The Hollywood Reporter, who moved on to focus on writing the proposed “Dune” movie sequel.
The project remained dormant as the film industry reeled from the challenges introduced by COVID-19, but fans finally got some good news in July 2021 when Variety revealed that “Dune: The Sisterhood” had found a new showrunner, Diane Ademu-John. Ademu-John will also serve as a writer and executive producer. While the show may still be a ways out, Ademu-John’s involvement is a good indication that the project is back on track.
