This sort of news was inevitable, really, but it was still met with a groan from most of the online community: the Twilight franchise, a massive moneymaker, is going to be milked for even more. While the fifth and final entry in the film series, Breaking Dawn Part 2, is slated for release on November 16, the franchise will apparently continue in either another film series or a television show.
The potential television series has no subject yet -- io9 suggested that the series be centered around Bella's "Mustache Dad" Charlie, but there's a problem with that: actor Billy Burke currently stars on the NBC series Revolution. The most likely theory (for those of you who care) is that the series will focus on the werewolf clan from which Jacob (Taylor Lautner) hails.
But don't expect to see Jacob, Bella, or anyone else from the film series in the television show -- all new characters will be used for the series, which means that the spin-off really won't be all that connected to the Twilight Saga.
Has anyone ever really considered if we actually need a Twilight series, though? I think the CW's pretty much got the genre-love-story thing covered. Anything else seems like it would just be redundant.
What do you think? Would you like to return to Forks for the Twilight TV show, or would you rather they just left the franchise out in the sun for a while?
