HBO Max is working on a Batman spin-off series.

Director Matt Reeves signed on to direct the project. Reeves is also working on the upcoming Robert Pattinson ‘The Batman’ movies.

The upcoming series will be a police TV series that is set in the same world Reeves is developing in the upcoming Pattinson movies. Terrence Winter will write the show’s script and it will focus around Gotham City Police Department’s attempt to keep the city safe. According to the press release, the series will focus on “the motion picture’s examination […] of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms.” 

HBO Max has not released the show’s name. However, some sources suggest the show will be called ‘Gotham Central’. Director Reeves also made a statement saying, “This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a long-form format can afford.”

No casting calls have been released, so far.
