The Sly Cooper series is a true fan-favorite video game franchise. The combination of great characters, wacky setting, stealth and action gameplay, and more have made it epic from basically start to finish. The series has had 4 titles, and was rumored to be getting a movie in the style of the Ratchet and Clank film that released last year. However, that never moved forward. Now though, it’s been announced that Sly Cooper will be getting a TV series, one developed by Technicolor Animation Productions, who makes the very successful Sonic Boom TV show, along with Sony who owns the rights to the franchise.
