Lara Croft’s next adventure — well, one of them, anyway — will start streaming this fall. Netflix announced that its animated Tomb Raider adaption will hit the service on October 10th. The show is called Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft, and it picks up right after the most recent video game trilogy, which culminated with Shadow of the Tomb Raider in 2018. Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter in the MCU) will star as Croft.

Here’s the setup:

Following the events of the Survivor series, Lara Croft has abandoned her friends to embark on increasingly more perilous solo adventures. But she must return home when a dangerous and powerful Chinese artifact is stolen from Croft Manor by a thief with an uncanny personal connection. Her daring pursuit will take her on an adventure around the world and to the depths of forgotten tombs, where she will be forced to confront her true self, and decide just what kind of hero she wants to become.

The show is part of a huge — and growing — library of video game adaptations on Netflix. Most recently, the streamer announced that it was making an animated Minecraft series. It’s also part of somewhat of a resurgence for Tomb Raider as a franchise, with Amazon both publishing a new game developed by Crystal Dynamics and creating a live-action show helmed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
