Remember that rumour about Hellboy writer Andrew Cosby writing a Netflix series based on Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo? Turns out that it wasn’t a rumour at all.
Cosby himself has confirmed via Twitter that he’s in the final talks to write and show-run the new animated series after playing coy a few weeks before.
I guess I can confirm I am indeed in final talks to write and show-run the new DIABLO animated series for Activision and Netflix. It's very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.

And for those afraid that Netflix would tone down the series, Cosby stated a few weeks before the above tweet, that if he were writing a Diablo series (which he is now close to doing), “it would DEFINITELY be Rated R”. Nice.
Hopefully when Blizzcon hits, we get more info on this one.
