The Hollywood Reporter describes the plot for the classic Frank Herbert novels:
Herbert’s Dune novel examines a future in which humanity has spread across the galaxy to thousands of worlds, all ruled by the Padishah Emperor, The Imperium. Dune: The Sisterhood takes place in the same universe and explores the future through the eyes of a mysterious order of women: the Bene Gesserit. Given abilities by their mastery of the body and the mind, the Bene Gesserit expertly weave through the feudal politics and intrigue of The Imperium, pursuing plans of their own that will ultimately lead them to the enigmatic planet Arrakis — known to its inhabitants as Dune.
There are more than 20 books in the Dune series of which Herbert wrote six of them. His son continued the book-series. Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts are still producing the web-series.
