The extremely popular movies revolving around Indiana Jones are one of the most loved films of all time.

While many believed that the fifth installment is the last they will get to see of the archaeologist Indiana Jones, that might not be the case. Even though the untitled fifth addition will be the last installment in the film series, the franchise is currently in discussions to continue its legacy on streaming sites. Disney+ may be coming out with an Indiana Jones TV show.

According to Variety, The Mouse House and Lucasfilm are planning to take on the streaming platform, Disney+, as Indiana Jones’ next adventure. This means that there is a very real possibility that the fifth movie is not the last fans will see of Indiana Jones. However, no official reports have been made yet.

Apparently, the company is still in search of a writer for the said TV series which is why no plot details can be shared as of now. However, it is interesting to think about which direction the franchise goes to next. Whether the series will be a spinoff or a prequel to Indy’s life as the famous globe-trotter, is a mystery. It’s also possible that the series somehow ties into the last Indian Jones movie.

If the idea comes to fruition, it won’t be the first time Indy is seen on the small screens. Back in 1992, ABC released a two-season The Young Indiana Jones Chronicle. The franchise also had four TV specials that aired on The Family Channel, which is now known as Freeform.

It is not shocking that Disney would want Indiana Jones to continue his legacy since the four films in the franchise have grossed over $1 billion worldwide, collectively. The Indiana Jones film series has certainly resulted in big bucks. Streaming the TV series on Disney+ might be the right direction to go towards as Marvel’s TV projects have gained immense popularity through the streaming platform.

While Harrison Ford has done an incredible job making his way into the hearts of movie fanatics, it might, unfortunately, be time for him to hang up Indy’s fedora and say his goodbyes to the franchise. During the Lucasfilm panel at D23, he revealed that the fifth movie will be his last run in the series stating, “This is it! I will not fall down for you again.”

This led fans to ponder the question – Who is the next Indiana Jones? While many fans believe that the talked-about TV series will focus on young Indiana Jones, many have their own casting in mind. From Chris Pratt to Harry Styles, many actors have come up in the fans’ discussions.

On one hand, viewers are thrilled to see who the next Indiana Jones will be, while on the other hand fans are afraid that the TV series will take things a bit too far, blaming Disney for milking popular franchises till the audience gets tired of it. Fans have even vouched for an animated series instead of the live-action, with Ford voicing the archaeologist.

Should the live-action TV series becomes a reality, it would be intriguing to see how it manages to live up to the expectations of fans. There’s no doubt to the fact that the four released movies have set the bar high in the sky, with the fifth addition expected to take it even higher. It’s sure going to be quite a task if the TV series wants to become a hit with the fans.

The fifth Indiana Jones movie will release in theatres on June 30, 2023.
