“The Bible” Miniseries Gets a Sequel…Will You Be Watching?

    The Bible, which premiered to more than 13 million viewers in March, was favorite among many of you PI gals. So you’ll be happy to know that though the show wrapped its 10-episode run on Easter Sunday with no plans to return, it has officially been announced that the miniseries will return for a sequel!

    Why the quick change in plans? In its first week of home video release, it quickly became the top-selling miniseries of all time and the No. 1 TV series on DVD and Blu-Ray in the past five years. Whoa! NBC bid for and won the rights to the sequel, landing the follow-up and securing the return of producer Mark Burnett and his wife, Roma Downey.

    NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said, “I followed the development process of The Bible [which originally aired on the History Channel] closely with Mark and knew that the story was far from over after Christ’s Crucifixion. In fact, what happened in the aftermath – which is essentially the beginning of Christianity – is utterly fascinating. … This will be attention-getting in every way.”

    Here is the official description for A.D.: Beyond the Bible (tentative title):

    A.D.: Beyond the Bible begins 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.

    1. definitely not gonna watch it- the series is praised for being accurate but Jesus is played by a white guy? come on. (not even gonna mention how they made satan dark skinned, ugh)

        • hahaah omg, pumpkin, people from Jerusalem aren’t white! Jesus was from the Middle East- that means dark skin, dark hair, dark eyes. There’s a very unlikely chance that he’s white.

        • Although I do agree that the fact that Jesus being played by a white person isn’t a big deal; I just wanted to correct you in the place of Jesus’ birth. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. 🙂

        • It’s okay! I totally didn’t notice it the first time I saw the comment. 🙂
