The show described as a cross between Stranger Things, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Gravity Falls stems from an original idea on the part of producers Michael Zoumas and Charlie Matthau, which was then turned into the book Field Guide to the Supernatural Universe by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël.
The book set for publication this spring via Simon & Schuster is set in Glimmerville, a small town known for its incessant fog and enchanted pies. It follows a boy who longs to be normal, but must rely on his suppressed supernatural abilities to defeat an unearthly nemesis and save his town. The series adaptation has not yet been set up at a network or streamer.
“Alyson’s writing captured everything we love about the genre.
