NBC Officially Greenlights Second Season of “The Bible”

    After the epic success of The Bible, word quickly spread that the miniseries would be renewed for a second season. That rumor was recently confirmed when NBC officially announced the 12-episode miniseries A.D., which will pick up where the History Channel’s ratings winner (13.1 million watched the premiere!) The Bible left off. It will likely debut in the spring of 2015.

    “You might think the story is over at the Crucifixion, but as most of the world knows, that was only the beginning,” NBC Entertainment chief Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “Everyone’s lives were completely altered in an instant and the immediate aftermath of Christ’s death had an impact on his disciples; his mother, Mary; and key political and religious leaders of the time. In the first episode alone, you see the last moments of the Crucifixion, Judas taking his own life after betraying Christ, Peter denying Jesus three times and then the miracle of the Resurrection.”

    A previously released description of part two is below:

    In the dark days after Jesus’ betrayal and death, a perfect storm brews in the Holy Land, fueled by social injustice, Roman military oppression and religious unrest. High priests and the Herod dynasty vie for power. Zealot revolutionaries turn to violence to regain what they believe is their promised land. And in the face of terrible odds and brutal persecution, the small band of Jesus’ disciples stand against the combined might of Rome and their own local authorities. In a generation of rebellion, war, famine and carnage, who can they trust? Who should they fear? Will tomorrow bring a violent death? For many, it does…but others survive, and as the storm around them breaks, the fate of Israel, of Rome and of their faith is decided.

    Simon Block (The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall) has signed on to write the scripts, while a director and cast have yet to be announced.

    1. I looooved this show when it aired last spring and I just gasped when I say there’s going to be a part two. I love the series because not only does it portray bible stories in a beautiful, graphic, well-written way that is enticing for the general public today, it doesn’t skim over or fluff up the REAL Christianity and displays authentic ideals of what Christianity is about. Just reading that synopsis gave me the chills-it sounds sooooo good! I am excited the struggle the disciples, apostles, and many of Jesus’ martyrs stories will be told-and I know this show will do this history justice.
