Some upsetting news for fans of Divergent. According to MStars News, neither Shailene Woodley nor Theo James will return for the movie franchise’s planned TV series.
Last year, it was reported the film franchise would wrap up its final installment, Ascendant, as a possible TV movie or show. Based on the book series by Veronica Roth, Divergent stars Shailene Woodley as Beatrice Prior, a young woman who lives in a dystopian society split into factions. The cast also includes Theo James, Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, and Ansel Elgort.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Woodley confirmed she would not be joining the Divergent TV series. Now, TooFab is reporting Theo James will also not be returning for Divergent: Ascendant. What this means for the planned TV project is unclear. No further details have been released.
What do you think? Are you a Divergent fan? Would you watch a TV series without Woodley and James?
