It seems that the news of the start of filming on ‘Dune: The Sisterhood’, the long-awaited prequel to Denis Villeneuve’s film, must be added a significant loss. Diane Ademu-Johncreator of the series, leaves her position as coshowrunner of the series, which we will see soon on HBO Max.

Ademu-John shared responsibilities in the making of this prequel with alison schapker, who will be from now on the solo showrunner of the fiction. Schapker is perhaps best known as the head of ‘Altered Carbon’, the Netflix science fiction series.

The reasons for the withdrawal of the creator of ‘Dune: Sisterhood’ have not been revealed, but the screenwriter will not completely disassociate herself from fiction since she will continue to work as executive producer. However, he will dedicate himself to other projects.

Remember that this prequel takes place millennia before (10,000 years, in fact) and tells the story of the Harkonnen sisters in which they try to forge the destiny of humanity and establish the sect known as the Bene Gesserit.

Emily Watson, Shirley Henderson and Travis Fimmel lead the main cast of the series, which is completed by Indira Varma, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Faoileann Cunningham, Aoife Hinds and Chloe Lea. Johan Renck directed the pilot episode.
