‘Transporter’ TV Series to Air on TNT in Fall 2014

Chris Vance as The Transporter Transporter TV Series to Air on TNT in Fall 2014

Never change the deal. No names. Never open the package. Those are the rules that courier-for-hire Frank Martin abides by without question, which of course means that they got broken not long into the running time of Corey Yuen’s 2002 action film The Transporter, which starred Jason Statham as the lead and was followed up with two sequels and a TV series.

Transporter: The Series features British actor Chris Vance (Prison Break) in the role of Frank Martin and has already aired in a number of countries, including Germany, France and Canada. As French-Canadian studio Atlantique Productions gets ready to shoot the second season next month, TNT has announced that US audiences will get to see the show as well.

Originally commissioned by French network M6, the first season of Transporter: The Series will arrive on TNT in fall 2014. Vance may already be familiar to TNT viewers, as he starred in a recurring role as Lt. Col. Charles “Casey” Jones in the detective series Rizzoli and Isles.

The first season of Transporter: The Series has apparently been in a success in the countries where it’s aired, and for the second season Frank Spotnitz is taking over as showrunner. Spotnitz is probably best known among geek circles as one of the writers and producers of The X-Files, and his more recent projects include action drama series Hunted and Strike Back.

Transporter: The Series was originally supposed to air on Cinemax, but the network eventually dropped it entirely. Screen Rant readers were a little underwhelmed by the trailer that was released last year but it’s probably worth at least giving the pilot a watch. The show also stars Andrea Osvárt (Aftershock) as Carla, Frank’s handler and love interest, and François Berléand (who starred in the films) as Inspector Tarconi.

Will you be tuning in to watch Transporter: The Series when it airs this fall, or is your TV-watching schedule already booked up?

  1. Could’ve at least introduced a new character instead of new actor for the character.

    All these reboots…

    Why not continuation stories? How does anyone know for sure that there was JUST ONE transporter?

  2. I’m from Canada and have watched the show a couple of months back. Not a mind blowing tv show nor does the actor have Statham’s stance, but its still a very enjoyable action tv show

  3. Yes,as stated above,not groundbreaking but good for what it does !
    Watched the series 1 here and enjoyed it !
    Worth a watch !

  4. Seen it already.
    Its not bad for what it is.

    In this day and age, the notion or idea of staggered openings is ludicrous.

  5. The question is: when TNT airs it, are they going to air it in order or all mixed up like they have every other run? Will the “pilot” actually be the pilot?

  6. I saw the entire first season of the show last year. although Chris Vance was one of the only positive factors in the show (the car sequences were good as well), everything else was horrible. The supporting cast, the acting and the weak plot. I really thought that the show was canceled like i wrote in my review – http://www.coolreviewsrule.com/2013/04/transporter-tv-series-review.html
    Apparently Cinemax found a sucker in the form to TNT to take the fall when the US audience will see the show for what it is.

  7. I watched the first episode, it was unbelievably awful. I can’t imagine watching any further than that, it really was bottom of the barrel rubbish, they tried their hardest to turn an enjoyable action film into a soft porn series with a few bits of action. All of the acting is terrible, and the only decent thing is that some of the stunt work is pretty impressive.

  8. Cinemax compeltely dropped it? Oh no, I smell a stinker.

  9. Hehe… reading these comments, you would think that the Transporter movies were the epitome of acting and action.

    I don’t think the TV series can be much worse than Transporter 2 and 3.

  10. Yes! I downloaded this show and loved it. Can’t wait to see it again!

  11. it is worth watch ing alone for andrea osvart :)

  12. I LOVED the first season of Transporter! Figured it wasn’t coming back when they announced that Chris Vance had gotten injured on the set. I’m absolutely thrilled to hear of a second season!!!
