Prime Video is developing a series based on Andrew Lane’s Young Sherlock Holmes series of young adult novels, Deadline reports.

Lane’s eight-book series, published in the U.S. as Sherlock Holmes: The Legend Begins, kicked off in 2010 with Death Cloud, which follows the legendary detective as a 14-year-old on summer vacation in the country, investigating two mysterious deaths.

Other installments in the series include Rebel Fire, Black Ice, and Fire Storm. The most recent novel in the series, Night Break, was published in 2015.

The series will be directed by Guy Ritchie, known for films including Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Ritchie is no stranger to Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic character: He directed the 2009 film Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr. as the titular detective, and its 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Hero Fiennes Tiffin (After, The Woman King) will play the title role in Young Sherlock.

“In Young Sherlock we’re going to see an exhilarating new version of the detective everyone thinks they know in a way they’ve never imagined before,” Ritchie told Deadline. “We’re going to crack open this enigmatic character, find out what makes him tick, and learn how he becomes the genius we all love.”

Lane shared news of the project on the social platform X, writing that he is “on edge waiting to see what the TV team do.”

He also teased the possible return of the book series, posting, “I’m 90% sure that a publisher will decide to restart the book series, based on the hopeful success of the TV series. We may have to miss out ‘Sherlock in India’, and have him living in London, but I can always go back and do India as a self-published novella.”
