The series creators detail Sister Francesca as leaving a powerful and lasting impression, with her return to the palace disrupting the established power dynamics of the capital. Dune: Prophecy, originally titled Dune: The Sisterhood when commissioned in 2019, takes viewers on a journey 10,000 years before the events depicted in the Dune films.  

Set within the expansive universe crafted by author Frank Herbert, the prequel series follows two Harkonnen sisters as they confront threats endangering humanity and establish the foundation for the revered Bene Gesserit sect. The series draws inspiration from the novel "Sisterhood of Dune" by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.

Tabu joins a cast featuring renowned actors including Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, and Mark Strong. The series will be helmed by executive producer and director Anna Foerster, who will also direct the first episode. Alison Schapker takes on showrunner and executive producer duties, while Diane Ademu-John co-develops the series and serves as an executive producer.

The announcement of Tabu's casting follows the successful release of Dune: Part Two earlier this year, which marked the second instalment in Villeneuve's cinematic adaptation of Herbert's classic sci-fi novel. With a combined box office gross exceeding $1.1 billion, the "Dune" franchise continues to capture the imagination of audiences worldwide. A third film is currently in development.

Tabu's most recent screen appearance was in the comedy film Crew, while fans can look forward to her upcoming role in the romantic drama Auron Mein Kahan Dum Tha, slated for release in July 2024.
