One of the many shows announced back at the Disney+ Day in 2021 was a brand new series called “The Spiderwich Chronicles”, which follows the coming-of-age story of the Grace Family, as they move from New York to Michigan and into their family’s ancestral home. Upon arrival, the family not only uncovers mysteries hidden inside their great grandfather’s Spiderwick Estate, but also discovers a secret, fantastical world around them.

The series is based on the popular book series of the same name by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black. It stars Joy Bryant as “Helen Grace”; Noah Cottrell as “Simon Grace”; Lyon Daniels as “Jared Grace”; Mychala Lee as “Mallory Grace”; Jack Dylan Grazer as the voice of “Thimbletack” and Christian Slater as “Mulgarath.”

The show has been produced by Paramount Television Studios & 20th Television, however, last year, it was announced that the show would no longer be released as a Disney+ Original, instead the two studios sold the show to Roku in the United States, though Paramount will continue to distribute the series internationally.

Roku has released the first teaser trailer and poster for the upcoming series at IGN‘s Fan Fest 2024:

“The Spiderwick Chronicles” is executive produced by Aron Eli Coleite, who also serves as showrunner, along with Kat Coiro, who directs the first two episodes of the series. Tony DiTerlizzi, Holly Black, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Jeremy Bell, D.J. Goldberg, Julie Kane-Ritsch and Grace Gilroy also executive produce.

With both Disney and Paramount wanting to release the show on their own platform, it does raise concerns about the quality of the show, but we will be able to make our own minds up when it gets released on Roku on April 19th 2024.
