As we reported earlier this month, Roland Emmerich himself is planning a TV series as a spin-off/sequel to 2012. Today we have just a bit more details thanks to MTV News. Spoilers follow, so be warned.
Emmerich explains that the show takes place after the arks get to Africa, which is supposedly the only land above water, though I thought I saw some more land during that reverse zoom of Earth to end the film. Either way, the series would follow an all new cast, which includes people from the arks as well as those already on the continent. Emmerich suggests it would be somewhat like LOST, and he’s pitching it to LOST’s home ABC, so it might be a nice replacement once the show goes off the air next year. Check out the interview to see Emmerich explain it himself:
What do you guys think of a 2012 TV Series? Would the proposed name “2013” be too hokey? Is the idea itself too hokey? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
