I don’t think that anyone saw this coming.
According to Variety, “Divergent Series” with a television movie and a spinoff series.”
While we are all for more Four in a spinoff series (we’re assuming that’s what it would be – since you know, Tris dies in the books), we’re a little confused as to the thought process behind this.
Yes, we know Allegiant effectively well – it didn’t do well at the box office. The Divergent Series: Ascendant was due to hit screens next year. But, Variety is reporting that Lionsgate wants to wrap up the series on the small screen.
We’re interested in seeing how they would wrap up the current cast and introduce a new one. We don’t know about you, but we’re not ready to see anyone else in the role of Four.
See, in our opinion – we follow the characters – and when you make someone the face of the character – it’s hard to imagine anyone else in their place.
According to Variety it’s not clear if Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, and others that have starred in the series will return for the Ascendant television movie.
No deals as to who would air the series have been made either.
