The Dark Knight Dynasty is an upcoming American television superhero series created and developed by John Albright. Based on the DC Comics character Batman, the series takes place in a futuristic Gotham City where crime is rampant and the pinnacle of technological prowess has slowly propagated. The series' plot follows a young man named Terry McGinnis, who takes upon the mantle of the Batman after Bruce Wayne has retired and trains himself to become a new protector for Gotham. According to Albright, the series serves as an epilogue to Christopher Nolan's critically and commercially successful film The Dark Knight Rises.

Development

Conception

The series was created by John Albright, who at the time became interested in the aspects of the DC animated universe as well as Batman Beyond, a television show that also took place in a future Gotham City in which Bruce Wayne retires as Batman due to his failing health and recruits a high-schooler named Terry McGinnis to continue his legacy. Albright stated that he wanted to do an "honest to God" reboot of the Batman Beyond at that point and also wanted to continue the Nolan trilogy in the form of a long-running series. It was then that The Dark Knight Dynasty was penned and later took the form of a pilot episode script.
