Divergent fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the final film, but the latest news on Ascendant is going to break a few hearts...

The world fell in love with Four, aka Theo James, when Divergent graced theatre screens all around the world. Let's face it, we fell in love with Tris, akaShailene Woodley, as well. 

Fans were also pretty excited when they found out that the third book was going to be made into two films, because who doesn't love more, more, more?!

But now that news has broken about the fourth and final movie, fans aren't happy at all... 

Lionsgate, the production company behind the series we all love, is wrapping it all up by sending the fourth film Ascendant from the big screen to the small screen... 

That's right, it's going to be a television movie...

Needless to say, we ain't happy, because a) nothing is ever as good when it's not on the big screen, b) the series deserves its place in the theatres, c) how the hell will we get to watch it if it's going to be a U.S telemovie?, and d) how the hell can Lionsgate withhold Theo's perfect face and body from us?!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film's budget has been reduced due to it not doing well at the box office with Allegiant

Despite no pitches being publicly made about the projects, the series' wrap up as a telemovie will lead to a spinoff TV series with "a new cast, who would then continue the series on either a traditional or streaming network."

Shailene spoke out on the decision to press, saying, "Honestly, I was on a plane when all that happened and I landed, and I’m like Whoa, what’s going on?!"

"I need to talk and find out what the details are."

We're praying the whole telemovie thing doesn't eventuate, because, well... this.
