Believe it or not, there’s still hope for continuing The Event, the low-rated serial that NBC cancelled in May.
At the NBC session of the current TCA press tour, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said that a wrap-up movie has “been discussed with Syfy and a few weeks ago it seemed more possible than it does today, but I honestly don’t know.”
The exec was quick to point out that, if The Event does return in some way, it’ll be on Syfy and not the peacock network.
A month ago, we reported on fan efforts to keep The Event alive in some form. Series creator Nick Wauters had tweeted his support and wrote, “We are still actively searching for a way to bring back #theevent. No concrete update at this time, guys. Hopefully we’ll hear smthg soon.”
