The 24-year-old actress, who stars as Tris in the film franchise, spoke to Deadline about the news while arriving at 2016 San Diego Comic-Con.
“Honestly, I was on a plane when all that happened and I landed, and I’m like ‘Whoa, what’s going on?!’” she shared. “I need to talk and find out what the details are.”
Shailene didn’t comment on if she’d return as Tris for the TV plans at all.
If you missed it, Lionsgate announced yesterday that Ascendant, the final film, would skip the big screen for a TV movie and spinoff series.
