Because Hollywood has become a hell of repetition, endlessly repeating the entertainment we’ve seen before over and over and over again, we are now facing an existence in which a Hellraiser TV show is going to exist.  Surely, the most necessary movie-to-television transitions, the Hellraiser weekly TV series will be following on the heels of the upcoming Hannibal Lector NBC TV series.  Using this as a metric, in the next five years we will see weekly TV series’ dedicated to the lives of Chucky, the guy from Maniac Cop, and maybe the kid in the Santa suit from Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Coming Soon notes that executive producer Larry Kupin (the exec behind Hellraiser and Hellraiser II: Hellbound) is teaming up with Sonar Entertainment to bring Hellraiser to the small screen, so that we can all follow along to the weekly misadventures of lovable scamps Pinhead, Butterball, the Female, and Chatterer (yes, these are actual names) as they drag various souls into Hell to wear S&M leather and engage in the occasional oddball piercing practice:

No word yet on when the Hellraiser TV show will make it onto TV, so we’ve got at least a solid year before we have to watch the wacky world of Pinhead and Friends.

What do you think of the Hellraiser news?
