Final Divergent movie set for the small screen?

July 21st, 2016 by Marc Comments



It looks like the final Divergent film could end up on the small screen.

According to Variety, Lionsgate are keen on wrapping up the film series with a TV movie of ‘Ascendant’ that would introduce characters for a potential spinoff TV show

The ‘Divergent’ films have all seen diminishing box office returns each time a movie has been released despite hopes that this series of films could bring in box office returns as great as the ‘Hunger Games’.

Production on ‘Ascendant’ was intended to get underway this summer, however final box office numbers for the last film, ‘Allegiant’, have caused Lionsgate to have a change of heart.

The plan now is to have Lionsgate’s television group handle production of a TV movie that will finalise the storylines involving the current cast and introduce a new cast, who would then continue on with a TV series adaptation on either a traditional or streaming network.

Have you guys and girls enjoyed the Divergent series? Is this a good move by Lionsgate? Let us know your thoughts.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
