While we are getting a TV series, the movie franchise is not dead.

"We're certainly working on one for streaming and we're also working on one for the big screen," Bruckheimer explained to Collider in 2020.

"So, hopefully, they'll both come together and we'll bring you another National Treasure, but they're both very active."

"The television version is in process," the producer said.

"We have, I think, a pilot script done and an outline of the future episodes."

Now, we have a full-fledged series, and the official trailer makes it look like a perfect entry in the franchise.
