Have The Event‘s obituaries been written too soon? Could there yet be life in global conspiracy thriller? Leading man Jason Ritter offers a shard of light to the show’s fans.
At a recent entertainment bash, Ritter told TV Line that the show could yet return:
“I’m waiting to get a phone call either way. [Producers] Nick Wauters and Steve Stark are still talking to people and trying to get it done. Every cast member I’ve talked too is interested. And I personally would love to at least finish that story up.”
It’s no secret that the show’s producers tried to get the project on another network, with both Syfy and Netflix mentioned as possible suitors. However, nothing concrete has materialized and it’s been so long without any positive word that it seemed as though no news was bad news. And with good reason, Ritter himself already has a new job and other irons in the fire.
Whether he’d still be available if the season 2 call actually manifests is another matter. Personally, I’d be very surprised if we see the show again on any network. But stranger things have happened, and it’s perhaps some encouragement to the show’s fans who believe it deserves another chance.
Of course, if we hear anything we’ll be sure to let you know.
