An upcoming television series adaptation of 300 is currently in progress. As reported by Variety, the series is in its initial stages of development under Warner Bros. Television. The series is intended to serve as a precursor to the original 2006 film, with specific storyline details being kept confidential at this time. There are no confirmed writers, streaming platforms, or networks associated with the project as of now.

Zack Snyder, the director and co-writer of 300, is in discussions to helm and serve as an executive producer for the series. Joining him in the executive production role would be Deborah Snyder, Zack’s spouse and producing collaborator, along with Wesley Coller. Negotiations for agreements are reportedly ongoing, according to Variety.

300 was inspired by the graphic novel series created by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. Snyder directed the film based on a screenplay he co-crafted with Kurt Johnstad and Michael B. Gordon. The movie portrays a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. Gerard Butler portrayed King Leonidas, the Spartan ruler who led 300 warriors in combat against King Xerxes (played by Rodrigo Santoro) of Persia and his massive army of 300,000 soldiers. The cast also included Lena Headley, Dominic West, David Wenham, and Michael Fassbender.

Upon its release in 2006, 300 garnered acclaim for its intense and captivating action sequences. The film achieved significant global success, earning over $455 million in box office revenue against an estimated budget of $60 million.

A follow-up film titled 300: Rise of an Empire was unveiled in 2014. Directed by Noam Murro, Rise of an Empire follows the story of Themistocles (portrayed by Sullivan Stapleton), a Greek general preparing for a naval confrontation against Artemisia (played by Eva Green) and the Persian armada. Headley and Santoro reprised their roles as Queen Gorgo and King Xerxes, respectively. While not as well-received as the original movie, 300: Rise of an Empire managed to gross over $337 million worldwide despite a budget of $110 million.
