A National Treasure TV series has been ordered by Disney+.

The streaming platform has ordered 10 episodes of the show, a reimagining of the franchise, with original producer Jerry Bruckheimer and writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley.

Directed by Mira Nair, the show will look at issues of “identity, community, and patriotism through the eyes of Jess Morales, a 20-year-old DREAMer who sets off on an adventure to recover lost treasure and uncover her mysterious family history,” according to Variety.

No casting announcements have been made yet, but according to Bruckheimer, the show will have the same concept as the films, but with a younger cast.

In other National Treasure news, a third movie is in the works from Jon Turteltaub, who directed 2004’s National Treasure and its 2007 sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets, with Nicolas Cage returning as the lead. Original cast members Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, Harvey Keitel, Armando Riesco, and Jon Voight are also expected to star in the film.
