The world of Pokémon is reportedly coming to Netflix with a brand new live-action series.

According to reports from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Henderson, who is the current co-showrunner for "Lucifer," is attached to write and executive produce the show, which is said to be in early development.

Sources tell THR that a writers’ room led by Henderson started staffing up about a month ago.

Variety's source says the project will be similar in nature to the 2019 film "Detective Pikachu," which grossed more than $433 million worldwide.

No details have been unveiled about the show's plot.
