This is looking very likely considering Richard Rushfield's connections and reputation. I tweeted him asking what this means for The Silver Chair film adaptation which he quickly responded saying he wasn't sure and that he'd inquire.

I'm now just wondering when we'll get an official announcement...

From what I've heard Netflix is fairly hands-off with regards to their original content, so though I trust that whatever they produce will be high quality it's likely down to the writer, director, and producer what the series will be. I think Netflix does a good job at letting people who have a passion for something go for it

It's an eOne/Netflix production, so I'd assume Mark Gordon (he's President and Cheif Content Officer at eOne) would remain a producer on this project. I could see Vincent Seiber and Douglas Gresham on board as well considering their positions at the Lewis Estate.

Sept 2015: Showrunner and director announced
Jan 2016: First casting announcements
May 2016: Production begins

Season 2 premiered in March 2018. The final season is in the works.

Yeah, doing such kind of series does take time! But anyways, I'm quite eager to see what Netflix can do with Narnia. In the best case, we get something great, in the worst case, they butcher it and it will be bad, but you know what is bad, too? Not having more Narnia movies/series! So, if it fails, our situation will remain bad, but if it's good, it will benefit the community.

In other words, we won't lose anything if it's terrible, but we'll win if it is good, so let them do a Narnia series!

The press release makes it sound like they're going to do a series of movies and not a series of episodes. ("feature length and episodic programming") I guess that's good for the people who disliked the idea of a TV series and bad for the people who were excited about it.
For better or worse-for who knows what may unfold from a chrysalis?-hope was left behind.
