Superhit Indian film franchise Baahubali is set to get a prequel -- in the form of a series -- and director S S Rajamouli is happy to take the epic to the world through Netflix.

The online streaming platform recently announced it is set to make a series based on one of India’s highest-grossing films franchise Baahubali. It will be an adaptation of The Rise of Sivagami, a prequel novel to the 2015 film. Director S S Rajamouli, who helmed both the instalments of the hit franchise has teamed up with Arka Media Works and Netflix for the series.

Rajamouli said, “The World of Baahubali is extensive and immersive with strong characters and larger than life kingdoms. The films Baahubali 1 &2 are from one story set in this world and more dramatic stories were broadly conceived while building the Universe.”

Season one of the Netflix series will comprise nine episodes based on The Rise of Sivagami, which tells the story of Mahishmati’s queen Sivagami and how the city-state evolved into an empire.
