Shailene Woodley Won’t Be Joining the ‘Ascendant’ TV Movie

After the Divergent film series failed to deliver the expected box office results, some plans went into place to turn the last film Ascendant into a TV movie, which would then be followed by a TV show.


This week the franchise star Shailene Woodley was asked about whether she might take part in said TV show, and it sounds like she most certainly will not.

“From what I know, they want to proceed with a television show, which is not something that I signed up to do. Out of respect to the whole scenario, there could be things that have changed, but I didn’t sign up to do a TV show.”

Miles Teller also starred in the films and has mentioned that he has no plans to reprise his role if it heads to TV.

“At this point, it’s a different set of circumstances. We’ll see. I honestly haven’t talked to anybody. We all signed on for it in hopes that it’d be released in theaters, and we all had every intention of finishing [the franchise].”

As of now it sounds like the familiar characters from the books and first films would all be recast with new actors if the franchise heads to the small screen.
