Netflix has greenlit a Japanese drama series about the last ninjas to remain in modern times.

Man From Reno director Dave Boyle is behind House of Ninjas, which will air in 2024 and is based on a story by Kento Kaku, Yoshiaki Murao and Takafumi Imai.

The series will tell the story of the Tawara family, the last ninja family that abandoned its roots after an incident took place, who must take on the greatest crisis in Japanese history, threatening to shake the nation to its core.

Ninjas have been an area of fascination over the centuries and, as shown in the program, the legendary Japanese heroes of the shadows remain active today.

Boyle, who also wrote and directed Big Dreams, Little Tokyo, White on Rice and Surrogate Valentine and tends to utilize primarily Asian or Asian-American casts, will pen with Masahiro Yamaura, Kota Oura and Kanna Kimura.

TOHO Studios’ House of Ninjas will star Kento Kaku, who will also serve as co-Executive Producer, as well as Yosuke Eguchi, Tae Kimura, Kengo Kora, Aju Makita, and Nobuko Miyamoto.

Netflix is also behind Japanese series The Queen of Villains, which stars America’s Got Talent contestant Yuriyan Retriever as a professional wrestler who led the women’s boom in the sport. That show came on a recent slate that included a Japanese version of U.S. reality hit Love is Blind.
