There is new hope for fans of the Divergent series.
The final chapter, "Ascendant," was originally set to be released as a film in June 2017, but the studio scrapped the plan after watching the third movie, "Allegiant," struggle at the box office. Now, there is a new attempt to conclude the saga as a TV series, Variety reports. Starz is developing the project.
Screenwriter Adam Cozad and director Lee Toland Krieger are reportedly involved, both of whom were part of the original project. As for actors, we don't know which, if any, will return. Last September, star Shailene Woodley said she was not interested in "Ascendant" as a TV series, pointing out that she had signed on to do it as a film. Almost a year has passed since then, though, so it is possible that her perspective has changed. It may help that a premium network is developing the project and that she recently starred in HBO's "Big Little Lies."
No official announcements have been made yet, so we'll have to wait and see if there truly is a future for Tris (Woodley), Four (Theo James), and co.
