Fans of the Divergent films may soon see the story continue. Lionsgate is developing Ascendant into a television series, and it will likely land on Starz. Lionsgate began pondering a move to television after the third film in the franchise had low numbers at the box office.
“Writer Adam Cozad (Tarzan) is attached to pen the script as producers Lionsgate look to its newly acquired full stake in Starz to mine the stalled feature franchise. Cozad will executive produce alongside Lee Toland Krieger (Age of Adaline) after they were both previously set to write and direct what would have been the fourth film in the Divergent franchise.”
Fans could see at least one of the stars from the film franchise on the television series. Shailene Woodley may continue the story of Tris on the small screen.
