This is some interesting news, particularly if you are a fan of the movie, Field of Dreams. A prequel series is in the works, slated to stream through Peacock in 2023. Information about the series is pretty limited at this point, as the news about it is still pretty new.
The upcoming show will film primarily in Iowa, just like the 1989 movie did, though not on the original movie’s baseball diamond in Dyersville. So far, there is no announcement about the cast, or even if Kevin Costner will be involved in the new series in any way. However, it does look like the show is seeking out production assistants:
@NBCUniversal is shooting a #FieldOfDreams prequel this summer in Iowa, for a 2023 release on @peacockTV. Get involved: Create a listing on our Media Production Directory & sign up for our boot camp for production assistants June 4-5. #IowaFilm https://t.co/49NF9UlYIC— Produce Iowa (@ProduceIOWA) May 3, 2022
It is said that the story in the show itself will be the back story of what happened before Ray Kinsella decided to plow up his cornfield and put a baseball diamond there. What that means, exactly, I haven’t been able to find any additional details on. But this does look like something worth keeping an eye out for as information becomes more available.
