Ezio, my friend — we meet again.

A live-action Assassin’s Creed show’s currently in development at Netflix, Variety reported on Tuesday.

It’s part of a larger deal between the streamer and Ubisoft to release “live-action, animated, and anime series” in the years to come.

Ubisoft’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik will both serve as exec producers on the live-action show, which is still looking for a showrunner.

“For more than 10 years, millions of fans around the world have helped shape the Assassin’s Creed brand into an iconic franchise,” Altman said in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to create an Assassin’s Creed series with Netflix, and we look forward to developing the next saga in the Assassin’s Creed universe.”

Since the launch of the original Assassin’s Creed in 2007, the acclaimed Ubisoft series has sold hundreds of millions of games.

The next installment, Valhalla, is set to release on November 10.

“We’re excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed is beloved for,” said Netflix VP Peter Friedlander.

“From its breathtaking historical worlds and massive global appeal as one of the best-selling video-game franchises of all time, we are committed to carefully crafting epic and thrilling entertainment based on this distinct IP.”

In 2016, 20th Century Fox put out a live-action film based on the series. Starring Michael Fassbender, it bombed at the box office and was panned by critics.
