Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino is coming back to the screen — if a smaller one than usual.

On Wednesday, the famed filmmaker said he is set to debut his first-ever television series, premiering in early 2023, according to US media.

Tarantino offered no additional details on the show during his conversation with Elvis Mitchell at a New York City event promoting his new book, “Cinema Speculation,” a collection of essays on movies that made a formative influence on him.

But he was reported earlier this year to be in talks to direct a revival of crime drama series “Justified.”

Tarantino — who lives in Israel part of the time and is married to Israeli singer Daniella Pick, with whom he shares two children — has directed nine feature films over the last 30 years, winning an Oscar for 1994’s “Pulp Fiction” and acclaim for others such as “Inglourious Basterds,” “Reservoir Dogs” and “Kill Bill.” He has said his next feature film will be his last, though no timetable has been given for that.

But his TV experience is limited. It includes directing an episode of “ER” in 1995 and two episodes of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2005, as well as portraying a character on “Alias” between 2002 and 2004.

During Wednesday’s event, Tarantino also revealed that he had written a play before completing his 2019 film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
