Back To The Flow: Quentin Tarantino Plans To Create A TV Series After Nearly 20 Years - Arts & Culture

Perhaps, it’s to get his creative juices flowing—to prepare for his final film.

The 35-time Academy Award-winning director Quentin Tarantino is returning to TV. After nearly 20 years, he has disclosed plans to shoot an eight-episode series in 2023. His last TV directorial projects were in 2005, for two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Perhaps, it’s to get his creative juices flowing—to prepare for his final film. In an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace, the 59-year-old said his next movie would be his last.

“I’ve been doing it for a long time; I’ve been doing it for thirty years,” he said in the interview. “And it’s time to wrap up the show—I’m an entertainer, and I want to leave [fans] wanting more. I don’t want to work in diminishing returns. I don’t want to be an old man who’s out of touch, and already I’m [feeling that way] when it comes to the current movies out right now.” 

However, when asked what his “tenth and last movie” might be, Tarantino says he doesn’t have an idea yet, “I’m also not in a giant hurry to make my last movie either.” He adds that with the rise of streaming sites, he’s discovering what a “movie” even is in the current age. “Is it something that plays on Netflix? Is it something on Amazon that people watch on their couch?” he shared. 

The screenwriter noted that his last film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019), played in 3,000 theaters globally. Other fan-favorite Tarantino films include Pulp Fiction (1994), Inglourious Basterds (2009), and the Kill Bill movies (2003 and 2004).
