The Baahubali franchise is one of the first Indian ones that became globally successful. Right when the second film released, the streaming boom hit India and we had an animated series about Baahubali. Now, there’s news that Sivagami, one of the most incredible characters not just in the franchises but all over will get her own web series – a Netflix Original.

According to reports, the first season will be of ten episodes. The web series will begin shooting sometime in August. The entire shoot will take place in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad.  Gurmeet Singh, who earlier worked with Amazon Prime for Inside Edge will be directing the show. There is also no clarity on whether Ramya will be playing a role in the series, because  this will be a web series about a young Sivagami, so another actress will be playing the character.

Currently, the plan was to take the Baahubali franchise to comic books, video games, novels and animation films. While an animation series did happen, there’s no track of the animation film or comic books and novels.  However, Baahubali seems to have made its way to Netflix, faster than any other TV series or film.
