It's rumored the series will debut on Disney Plus.

The original Sandlot crew is prepping to play some more ball, according to the writer-director of the first two movies.

A TV reboot-sequel is in the works with the cast of the first film returning, David Mickey Evans told The Rain Delay podcast on Thursday. "I just sold a Sandlot television show. We're about to get an order for the first two seasons," he told host Cooperstown Kurt. Evans said he couldn't tell Kurt who was going to stream it but "I know who's going to stream it. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out right now."

He added, "I already got all the original cast members back. It takes place in 1984, when they’re all like 33 years old and they all have children of their own, and that's all I can tell you,” Evans said. Evans did not say which of the cast members would be returning; the original film was set in the San Fernando Valley in 1962. The second film featured a different cast including James Earl Jones and Gregg Germann.

The project is separate from another Sandlot property in development, 20th Century Fox's prequel to the iconic 1993 baseball film, co-penned by Evans and Austin Reynolds.

It has been confirmed the series is being made for Disney+.

Disney+ is priming The Sandlot for its streaming service, with the 1993 movie’s original director and co-writer David Mickey Evans attached to write and executive produce. Deadline hears the series is in early development. The Sandlot series will be set in 1984, when the original cast are adults and they all have children of their own. The streaming series will be separate from the The Sandlot prequel film which Evans is writing with Austin Reynolds, which is to take place in the 1950s.

Original screenwriter David Mickey Evans is behind the reboot, which will focus on the children of the original characters featured in the 1993 film of the same name. (It's unclear if The Beast's offspring will also be included.) Sources say all of the original cast is returning for the Disney+ revival.
