Update: Skydance Television had announced in 2016 that it was working on a live-action Sword Art Online series. It hired Patrick Massett and John Zinman (Friday Night Lights executive producers, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider writers) for the pair to serve as writers, showrunners, and executive producers for it and other projects in 2017. Another writer and executive producer, Laeta Kalogridis (Altered Carbon), said in 2018 that the series has been sold to Netflix, and that "Kirito and Asuna will be played by Asian actors."
