10,000 years ago Dune

It was during the 2024 Upfronts that the CEO of HBO and Max, Casey Bloys, lifted the veil on the teaser for Dune: Prophecy. The latter offers a glimpse into this drama series set 10,000 years before the rise of Paul Atreides in the films Dune by Denis Villeneuve.

As the show's official synopsis states, Dune: Prophecytraces the origins of the mysterious religious organization known as the Bene Gesserit, through the story of two Harkonnen sisters brought to fight against the forces of evil that threaten the future of humanity.

These images, both intriguing and thrilling, remind fans of Dune that the Bene Gesserit order is a group of women of extraordinary abilities, who have massive political and religious influence within the Imperium.

They are finally Emily Watson (Chernobyl) and Olivia Williams (The Crown) who play Valya and Tula Harkonnen, after the series went through many many changes behind the scenes (both in front of the camera and on the production side) during its development.

A series in project since 2019

As a reminder, Warner Bros. ordered this prequel Dune (first titled Dune: The Sisterhood) in 2019, even before Villeneuve's first film was released in theaters. But this adaptation of The Community of Sistersa novel by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, did not have an easy gestation: between pandemic and Hollywood strikes, the show also had to manage the departure of several writers, actors and directors, which did not help its production.

We now find in the cast a slew of talented actors including Mark Strong (who plays Emperor Javicco Corrino), Jodhi May (Empress Natalya) and Travis Fimmel (Desmond Hart).

Jessica Barden (seen in The End of the F—ing World) has also just been announced to the casting in the role of young Valya Harkonnen, thus suggesting that the six episodes of the first season of Dune: Prophecy will feed on flashbacks.

Alison Schapker serves as showrunner and executive producer on Dune: Prophecy. Diane Ademu-John is co-creator and executive producer. Anna Foerster, executive producer, was responsible for directing the first episode of the show. Other executive producers include Jordan Goldberg, Mark Tobey, John Cameron, Matthew King, Scott Z. Burns, Jon Spaihts and Brian Herbert.
