'Divergent' Final Film 'Ascendant' Heads To TV Instead of Big Screen

The final film of the Divergent film series, Ascendant, isn’t looking to make a big splash on the movie screen.

Instead, according to Variety, the film will wrap up with a television movie and a spinoff series.

Lionsgate plans to “wrap up the film series on the small screen, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation. That would then segue into a standalone television series set in the same post-apocalyptic world.”

Shooting on Ascendant was planned for this summer in Atlanta, however, the box office performance of Allegiant has caused the studio to re-think the decision.

For the television wrap up, “the idea is to finalize the storylines involving the current cast and to introduce a new cast, who would then continue the series on either a traditional or streaming network.”

There’s no word if Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort or other stars will reprise their roles at this point for the television debut.

    Well that’s what you get you try to milk a franchise isn’t it. The fact is Allegiant should not have been split into two films, I hate when they seem to do this with book series’. Harry Potter called for it because of the wealth of information they needed to cover, The Twilight series didn’t need two Breaking Dawns, The Hunger Games didn’t need two Mocking Jay’s…however at least they made their money and were decent films. Here you have Divergent series…with egg on its face. A pity, because I felt the first film was great.

    The horse is dead, Jim. Bury it and end the embarrassment.
