The National Treasure franchise is officially getting a reboot at Disney+ in the near future!

The long-gestating National Treasure TV series has been greenlighted with a 10-episode order. Also, National Treasure film producer Jerry Bruckheimer and writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley will executive produce the reimaging of the franchise.

However, the franchise will have a new lead character. Jess Morales is taking the torch from Benjamin Gates, the National Treasure films’ protagonist played by Nicolas Cage.
