Rumour: Twilight TV series and spinoff in the pipeline?

Have we seen the last of those pesky kids?

With Breaking Dawn - Part 2 looming large on the horizon, it had seemed that the sun was finally setting on the Twilight franchise, but the corpse appears to be twitching with news of a potential reprieve…

To be fair, Lionsgate were never going to let their number one cash cow go quietly, and the studio has apparently targeted a TV series or spin-off movie as the best way to keep the series alive.

Moviehole reports that the current thinking is to keep the next instalment within the “Twilight universe”, but without involving any of the central trio of characters. A story arc involving the wolf pack is currently thought to be an option worth exploring.

Whether or not its core audience of teenagers will still be interested without R-Pattz, K-Stew et al remains to be seen, but it seems that the studio is more than willing to take that risk. What’s more, with those stars’ mammoth pay-cheques off the table, a spin-off should be a far more cost-effective proposition…

However, purists can still look forward to the conclusion of the original movie series, with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 set to open in the UK on 16 November 2012.

      In all honesty, after viewing the first Twilight (and before the sequels came to light), my initial reaction was like "Meh, pretty boring and bland film that feels more like a TV pilot to me...". That's what I told my brain. What I'm trying to say is that I always thought Twilight would work better as a TV series. Of couse, that was before all the stinking sequels came along. Now I think they'd work better as paper to wipe my a**e with....

      @apo1978 - in that case, buy the books, and you will have the paper.

      Can't they just let it go? They ran out of good story lines before the first one even came out.
