"Ascendant," the last installment in the "Divergent" movie franchise based on Veronica Roth's series, is heading to the small screen.

While the move to bring the final movie in the series to TV had already been teased several weeks ago, there were still talks that it might not be final. A report from Deadline, however, confirms that the Shailene Woodley and Theo James starrer will no longer be made for the silver screen.

Lionsgate will reportedly start presenting the TV movie to around 12 networks that have expressed their interest in airing the upcoming project. While there is still no confirmation, there are rumors that the show will go to Starz, which was recently acquired by Lionsgate.

There are also rumors that the movie may no longer see the light of day as Lionsgate is reportedly bypassing the film and ending the franchise via a 10-13 episode season.

Even if the film does get produced, it is highly unlikely that the franchise's stars will be part of it. While she did not want to comment directly about her involvement in the project, Woodley said she was surprised by the news of the move and that she would have to talk to the people involved before she can say anything about it.

Meanwhile, Ansel Elgort appeared to be clearer with his intention to no longer be part of the project. When asked to comment about the issue, Elgort told Huffington Post that he was sad that he was not able to properly say goodbye to his cast mates and that they were all looking forward to doing the final film in the series.

Miles Teller told The Hollywood Reporter that he wasn't sure if he will be part of the project either, but he maintained that the experience of shooting the first three films in the franchise was pleasant and that he has nothing bad to say about the experience and the people he worked with.

"Ascendant" was originally slated for a June 2017 theatrical release.
