Sci Fi Channel Series

For the updated "Flash Gordon (Sci Fi Channel)" series, creator and executive producer Peter Hume says that the Lion Men will appear:

You had to keep the spirit of the thing, but then update it. But I still want to do, like, Lion Men. I want to do Hawk Men. But how do you do Hawkmen and not make it stupid and silly? We have Hawkmen, but they're guys that follow the way of the hawk and are all about birds, and they do kind of fly, but they're not guys with wings sprouting out of their backs... The Vultan character is a much more grounded leader of his people.

In the new series, the Lion Men will be known as the Turin.
