Netflix Gave Shailene Woodley’s Biggest Flop A Second Life & It’s Exploding

While it didn’t have the same critical love as the “Hunger Games” and “Harry Potter” franchises, the first “Divergent” was a perfectly adequate teen-oriented film and expectations were high for the sequels. Released in 2015, “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” managed to gross more than its predecessor despite a poor critical and fan reception. But that silver lining didn’t come a second time: the threequel “The Divergent Series: Allegiant” bombed at the box office, barely getting to $179 million. 

With general audiences and fans seemingly losing interest in the franchise, Lionsgate decided to turn the fourth book, “Ascendant,” into a TV movie, with the intention of eventually spinning off the franchise into various other programs. That, of course, didn’t happen, with Shailene Woodley and other cast members voicing their disappointment over the studio’s decision. “Out of respect to the studio and everyone involved, they may have changed their mind and may be doing something different, but I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show,” Woodley told ScreenRant. 

With Woodley done with the franchise, “Divergent 4” will likely never happen. While fans might be disappointed that they’ll never see the series conclude, they’ll be pleased to know that every “Divergent” film is streaming on Netflix. And if you still need your dystopian YA fix, here are 14 movies like “Divergent” you need to watch next.
