Does anybody know any tv shows that are based off of book seriesDoes anybody know any tv shows that are based off of book series Sydney #questionnaire
I think there have been several shows, primarily mysteries, that created book series for their characters. “Murder she Wrote,” and “Castle (is that even the name?” come to mind. I haven’t read them but I’ve seen them.
Yeah, Castle is right 🙂
New thing for today! I always thought Murder She Wrote was based on Agatha Christie.
As in, you’ve taught me my new thing
Susan Holly, the Castle books are awesome and are just as funny and good as the show. I’ve read them all and a few of the Derrick Storm books.
I know tv shows based off of book series. Vera Stanhope series by Anne Cleeves.
Poldark, Versailles, game of thrones, outlander, discovery of witches, call the midwife ?
There is a Versailles book?!?!
I mean that the show was based around not just history of Louis XIV. I love this show. I’m waiting for all of season 3 to air so I can binge watch it and then be sad its cancelled.
True, but I think she was asking the other way round–when the tv series came first.
@Susan yes i was
@Rachelle there is yes xx
Handsmaids tale, Mr Mercedes…
Cormoran Strike series (based on Robert Galbraith)
which is called the Sookie Stackhouse Series. Charlaine Harris did a wonderful job writing those.
@Christine I love the books more
@Lawona I did too. But, I religiously watched the series too. The only parts I truly disliked were what some of the characters looked like and the theme song. ?
@Christine me too
I think there are very few where the TV show came first. I’m trying to think of some, but, apart from Castle, which was already mentioned, I’m at a loss.
Gosh, I totally forgot about Dr Who. There are a lot of follow-on adventures for each doctor and other important characters as well.

Sharp objects by Gillian Flynn. They did a great adaptation of the book on HBO
