Shailene Woodley has been in multiple successful movies and TV shows but perhaps her most popular roles is portraying Tris Prior in the “Divergent” trilogy. The science fiction movie tells the story of a futuristic Chicago that divides individuals into factions, based on different virtues. Woodley discovers she is different from most and doesn’t fit into just one faction. The film trilogy follows Woodley’s character along with Four (Theo James) as they try to escape the lives they’ve known and discover the truth about their society.
The movies are based off the books by Veronica Roth: “Divergent,” “Insurgent” and “Allegiant.” The first movie came out in 2014, the second came out in 2015 and the third came out in 2016. The third installment of the series was supposed to be split into two parts, similar to the last movies in franchises like “Harry Potter,” “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” The first part of the movie came out in 2016, but the second part never got made.
The second movie, “The Divergent Series: Ascendant” was supposed to be released a year after part one, in March 2017. Lots of things started to happen that caused Lionsgate to stray from their plan.
“Allegiant” came out in theaters but didn’t do as well at the box office as expected. The movie didn’t make as much money as the others, causing the “Ascendant” budget to face a cut. The movie only made $179 million at the global box office, while the others made close to $300 million.

After that, the news came that the movie was no longer going to be a movie and it was going to be a spin-off television show instead. When the news came out, many in the main cast like Woodley, Miles Teller and Theo James expressed disinterest in participating in a show.
About a year after the TV show news, it was confirmed in December 2018 that the TV show was not being made after all. So even though the last movie audiences saw ended on a cliffhanger, the full conclusion to the franchise can only be found in the “Allegiant” book.
