Entertainment news website Deadline has reported on Wednesday that Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, also known as the Duffer Brothers, are working on a new live-action series adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s Death Note manga with Netflix at their newly formed studio Upside Down Pictures. Deadline states that this will be a “new take” from Netflix’s previous live-action Death Note film. The previous live-action adaptation premiered on Netflix in August 2017.

In Ohba and Obata’s original 2003-2006 manga, teenager Light Yagami finds a notebook with which he can put people to death by writing their names. He begins a self-anointed crusade against the criminals of the world, and a cat-and-mouse game begins with the authorities and one idiosyncratic genius detective.
