Last year, Divergent fans where shocked to hear their favorite dystopian series would not finish in the big screen, rather the studio would complete the fourth installment, Ascendant, as a TV movie and veering into a series. Fans weren’t the only ones caught off guard as the cast themselves where not aware of the change and their participation in the new project was up in the air. 

Now, we know for a fact that the lead actress and heroine of the series will not be returning as Tris Prior. Just yesterday, Vanity Fair spoke with Woodley at he Hollywood premiere of Big Little Lies regarding her role in the project. “No,” the Oscar-nominated actress replied, “I’m not going to be on the television show.”

It is also unlikely Miles Teller will return for his role. We have yet to see about Theo James and Ansel Elgort although all signs point to no.
