There has never been a better time to be a beloved but cancelled TV series. This year saw Arrested Development returning for a fourth season and the long-promised Veronica Mars movie entering production, while Fox put together plans for the limited sequel series 24: Live Another Day.
In that light, it makes sense that the folks behind Terriers, the brilliant but fatally underseen FX mystery series, are sounding more and more optimistic about a possible movie sequel. This week, star Donal Logue mentioned what he believes are the “realistic” chances of a Terriers revival. Hit the jump to read his comments.
Logue was asked about the potential Terriers film during a Reddit AMA session. His response:
chance of terriers movie (we talk about it) ted griffin dreams of netflix or someone picking it back up (better as series than a film)
He later added in response to another question, “realistic chance of some kind of terriers revival- yes.”
Producer Shawn Ryan has been talking up the idea of a Kickstarter-funded Terriers sequel for some time now. Veronica Mars‘ success only seemed to encourage him further, as he tweeted soon afterward that their strategy “could be a model for a Terriers wrap up film.” However, there hasn’t been any major progress as of yet.
Oh, and for anyone still mulling over the cliffhanger from the series finale, Logue has a definite answer about what happened next. (Spoilers ahead.) When the show left off, Hank was driving Britt to prison, but the pair were talking about the possibility of making a run for the border. However, Logue says there’s no question of what choice they eventually made: ”britt went to prison- had to go down like that.”
Discuss: Do you want to see a Terriers sequel, or would you rather they just leave it alone? As sad as it is that this great show got cancelled, I don’t know that reviving it years after it went off the air would be the best idea…
