Twi-hards prepare to weep tears of joy because another offering from Twilight's Stephenie Meyer is on its way.

Apparently, the author is determined to shake things up since her world-famous vampire books and is working with Lionsgate to bring a new TV show to the online-portal Hulu.

Called The Rook, the series is said to focus on a strong female lead and is reportedly set to be an adaptation of Daniel O'Malley's 2012 novel of the same name. Here's the official statement:

Meyer, who will executive produce The Rook, had taken the project to Lionsgate earlier this year. The Rook is based on O’Malley’s genre novel which introduces a strong female protagonist named Myfanwy Thomas with extraordinary powers who is employed by a mysterious British government agency responsible for defending the UK from supernatural threats.

Supernatural threats you say? If the show is anything between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Ghostbusters, I'm in!

Plus, according to the original story, leading lady Myfanwy starts the story with magical amnesia, which definitely adds a fascinating twist to the otherworldly drama. Perhaps she could be the next supernatural Jason Bourne?

Although no further details have been revealed, The Rook will debut on Hulu at some point in the future. And one thing is clear: Following years and years of dabbling with sparkly vampires and werewolves, and most recently parasitic aliens, Meyer has proven herself worthy of putting forward a supernatural drama that appeals to the fans.

We just hope that The Rook is a successful endeavor for her, especially considering one of her latest projects called The Host didn't do as well as planned. Remind yourself of the action-packed trailer, starring Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger below:
