Playing EXCLUSIVE: Shailene Woodley Reacts to 'Divergent' TV Series: I Didn't Sign Up for This

Shailene Woodley has no plans to pursue the book-turned-movie-turned-TV series, Divergent.

In July, it was reported that the final film in the Divergent series, Ascendant, would not have its previously announced theatrical release (June 9, 2017), but would instead debut as a TV movie and then spin off into a series.

However, Woodley, who portrayed Tris in the first three sequels, tells ET that she's not so sure she'll be continuing with the franchise. "I didn't sign up to do a television show," she admits. "I'm not sure that I will be a part of that television show."

The 24-year-old actress says she's not even certain Lionsgate has "finalized" anything regarding the future of the Divergent series. "There could've been things that are changed ...that have been changed that I don't know about," she adds.

Divergent's third sequel, Allegiant, only earned $66 million at the box office, which led Lionsgate to this reported new approach for the fourth and final movie. According to Variety, the spin off TV series would be set in the same post-apocalyptic world, but no word yet if Woodley's co-stars in the other three films, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, and Zoe Kravitz, will make the move to the small screen.

ET also spoke with Woodley about the Divergent TV movie while at Comic-Con in San Diego, California. Here's what she had to say:
