The video game industry is very rich in interesting stories and engaging characters as well Faction is one of the many Ubisoft titles that are being adapted on Netflix. We got our first look at Sam Fisher in June 2021, so let’s dive into everything we know about Netflix so far Faction Series.

The writer and showrunner for Netflix Faction is Derek Kolstad, best known for creating the huge hit franchise John Wick with Keanu Reeves. Kolstad has also written for Nobody with Bob Odenkirk and Disney’s The falcon and winter soldier. He expressed his enthusiasm for working on Splinter Cell in a recent interview with Collider:

“Animation is damn cool, dude. They send a script and they do it. It is not about occupying this, this, this or that. It’s like, ‘What do you want to do, Derek?’ “I think that would be cool.” ‘That would be cool!’ We start.”

The animation studio behind Netflix Faction is currently unknown, but will be announced soon, according to Kolstad.

In addition to Kolstad, there are David Diatch, who has worked on a number of high profile shows, and Katie J. Stone.


What is the plot of Netflix? Faction?

Nothing is known about the plot of the first season of Splinter Cell at this time, but Derek Kolstad has commented that the story will be each season self-contained:

“Each season will be self-contained, outside of the development of the main character. I like to have a big, bad, overarching story and backstory, with the A / B of everything, and yet I look at everything I do – well, almost everything – especially in movies and TV as that best western. He’s riding into the sunset because he’s going to do the same damn thing in the next town until he dies in the process. “

Will the animated series be tied to the games?

This is also unknown, but given the great success of the games, we would expect a completely original plot with some recognizable elements from the games. Perhaps it could be some of the missions or villains in the series, or even locations and allusions to iconic game mechanics.


What is the stage of development of Faction?

The first season of Faction is currently being written, so Kolstad. At the time of his last interview in March 2021, he finished the Season One Bible and mailed it to the others. He also stated that the writing process is expected to take another six months.

In June 2021, however, we got a first glimpse into the evolution of animation as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week Faction with the first glance at Sam Fisher with his iconic night vision goggles and a blood-soaked coat.

When will Faction be published on Netflix?

Derek Kolstad explained that the release of Netflix Faction won’t be that fast, but maybe in 2022 or later:

“Probably two years. Probably no, about 18 months. These things take 18 months to two years from inception to execution. My work with the other writers will be ready in probably six months. And yet you are always ready to go like, ‘This doesn’t work. That line sucks. The actor wants to do something cool. ‘ But I also believe that in animation, in particular, I can make your work easier if you have all the episodes in hand.


Will any of the voices from the game repeat their roles on the Netflix series?

About the possible cast of. is currently not known Faction, but it is very likely that Netflix would try to recruit the voices from the video games as they did with Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Cartoon. At least we hope so Michael Ironside will return as the signature voice of Sam Fisher.


How many seasons are planned for Netflix? Faction?

Netflix has ordered 16 episodes of Faction each episode lasting 20-30 minutes. The first season will consist of the first 8 episodes and the second season the other half of the ordered episodes. However, an extension is possible at any time.
