The Magus Readjusts Course; Is The River Now Heading Toward Netflix?
There's no doubt about it. ABC's journey down "The River" was a rocky one. The freshman show definitely traversed some peaks and valleys, but in the end it got a lot more right than it did wrong. So with the first season wrapped, the question beckons... Where do we go from here?
According to Deadline, Netflix, which is already in talks with 20th Century Fox TV about possibly picking up recently canceled Fox series "Terra Nova", may also be eying another show that's facing cancellation: ABC’s "The River".
The streaming giant has had conversations with "The River" producer ABC Studios about the possibility of continuing the thriller/horror series on Netflix. Sources stress that the talks are exploratory at this point in the context of a larger conversation between ABC Studios and Netflix.
"The River" has not been officially canceled by ABC, though that is considered a foregone conclusion. Also, since the series is produced by ABC’s own production arm, the network probably won’t stand in the way of a deal that would make money for its sister studio.
More as it comes.
