Top 10 Fantasy Book Series that Deserve Their Own TV Show

A Song of Ice and Fire, The Sword of Shannara and The Sword of Truth got their own shows and The Wheel of Time is currently getting one. So why not these brilliant series? In order for this list to work the series has to have more than 3 or 4 books. They can't be adapted into films because they have so many books in them. With that said, feel free to vote or remix.

The Top Ten

1 Discworld - Terry Pratchett Discworld - Terry Pratchett

41 novels. I already know it had a holiday special but why not adapt the whole series to television? It would be a great series!

2 The Horus Heresy - Various Authors

A book series that serves as a prequel to the game Warhammer 40K. Literally has 46 novels. This would be a completely awesome series!

3 Malazan Book of the Fallen - Steven Erikson

The series is extremely complex and has over 10 novels. Would fit good for T.V..

4 The Dark Tower - Stephen King

Thank God it is getting a T.V. show and hopefully they do something right with it cause the series would work much better as a show than it did with a film.

5 The Dresden Files - Jim Butcher

Currently 15 novels.

6 The Chronicles of Amber - Roger Zelazny
7 The Elric Saga - Michael Moorcock

Long time coming. The ultimate anti-hero of sword & sorcery.

Or better yet make a whole show about Michael Moorcock's multiverse instead of just adapting one series of his.

8 The Death Gate Cycle - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
9 Percy Jackson Series - Rick Riordan

It’d be better suited to an animated show - blackflower

10 Mistborn Series - Brandon Sanderson

The Contenders

11 The Black Company - Glen Cook
12 Guardians of Ga'Hoole - Kathryn Lasky

This is a great book series that really deserves a show that is better than its movie. I would gladly try out for Eglantine or Otulissa.

13 The Unwanteds - Lisa McMann
14 Unwind - Neal Shusterman
