Gamble will be working alongside fellow You vet Neil Reynolds, who will be serving as a writer on Peacock’s Providence adaptation.

Published in 2018, Kepnes’ Providence focuses on 12-year-old Jon Bronson, who vanishes along with five of his classmates. Later, John reappears as a grown up— but with no recollection of anything that transpired in his teenage years. There’s also the matter of the fact that he and the rest of the kids who vanished alongside him seem to have acquired some terrifying supernatural powers in their time away.

Currently, there’s no word yet on when we might expect to see the series adaptation of Providence premiere via Peacock.
