Probably not a good sign when this happens after production has started.

I don't think I even knew that Moaning Myrtle was going to be in this.

She probably would have made a good Bene Gesserit.

And I'm actually kind of surprised that this project survived the great Discovery purge.

Would hope it continues and is good. I thought the Bene Gesserit (and Honored Matres) were the most interesting parts of the first 6 Dune books.

Shit, I love Shirley Henderson. Oh well. Sometime things happen like this and it all works out.

How are they getting away with that?

It's explained in the article.

"The Sisterhood is under contract with British Equity, with some from SAG-AFTRA also in the mix. And per guidance from the actors guild stateside, members working under Equity contracts are to “continue to report.” SAG card carriers working on Equity productions may choose to boycott but, due to tough anti-strike laws in the UK, studios would be able to sue them directly to force them back on to set."

Yeah, it's complicated.

The bottom line is that these are foreign productions/co-productions and aren't fully under the auspices of the American unions.

I would wager that Doctor Who and its various spin-offs, even though it's now on Disney+, won't be affected by the strikes.

I assume this is about the Bene Gesserit developing and planting the seeds of the prophecy among the Freman?

I believe they were spreading those seeds across many, many planets but regardless I think this is a better concept for a show than just a generic look at the Sisterhood.

10,000 years before the birth of Paul Atreides, before the universe knew them as the Bene Gesserit...

The new Max Original Series Dune: Prophecy is streaming this fall on Max.

10,000 years... is this set before, during, or after the Butlerian Jihad?

Should be after, the Bene Gesserit is one of the groups that crawled out of the ashes of that war. Along with the Mentats, Navigators, Sword fighters, etc.
