With the Top Gun: Maverick sequel delayed for decades, the creation of a Top Gun series for Paramount + could boost power … post-burner on the platform.
“Duration flights” Paramount is preparing for the famous school of Top Gun, according to the site giantfreakinrobot, after the receipts of Top Gun Maverick that arrived at… heights at the box office. With the Top Gun: Maverick sequel delayed for decades, the creation of a Top Gun TV series for Paramount + could boost power … post-burner on the platform.
According to sources cited by the website, the Top Gun series is currently being developed in order to premiere on the streaming platform.
After all, the logic of the Maverick movie was that the pilot played Tom Cruise handed over the franchise control to a new generation of pilots who like to play sun volleyball and American football. A Top Gun series is an ideal way to continue the stories of US Navy pilots who probably have many similar characteristics and issues to deal with the hero played by Cruz. If Tom Cruise is persuaded to appear occasionally in the series, so much the better.
From the other side, There are many precedents that are not exactly in favor of the success of the Top Gun series. While there have been a few TV series in recent years that have had a successful transition from cinema to television, there are many more examples of series that have not been seen compared to movies.
It is noted that Paramount is trying to strengthen the Paramount + platform to compete with the “heavy names”, such as Netflix, HBO Max and Disney +. Given that Paramount has the Star Treks franchise at its disposal, as well as series based on the Yellowstone movie, a Top Gun series could be a big step for the studio.
