Although there’s been no specifics on the TV show, but if it’s anything like the video game, you can expect there to be agents, supernatural elements, and fights that take place around the world.
“The Secret World is the ideal gaming experience to translate into a live-action episodic adventure,” Veasey told Deadline.
Giddings, the producer from G4C Innovation, optioned the rights to The Secret World for a TV show adaptation back in 2012, according to Deadline. “It’s one of the most character-driven and well developed games I know of and naturally lends itself to fantastical storylines with intriguing characters, a thrilling and binge-worthy international TV show,” he said.

There is no word yet on who might appear in the Secret World TV show as well as when or where it will premiere.
