The sequel to The Bible is coming to NBC

Jul. 1, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I couldn't think of a witty joke title for the sequel to History's mini-series THE BIBLE. I considered BIBLE 2: CHRISTIAN BOOGALOO, BIBLE 2: JUDGEMENT DAY, or even THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. But, all of those are a little offensive so we will go with the real title: A.D.: BEYOND THE BIBLE.

The Mark Burnett-produced mini-series had huge ratings (13 million viewers) and NBC sorely needs a hit. So, grabbing the follow-up series which will focus on the rest of the New Testament not covered in THE BIBLE will definitely make for event viewing and big ratings.

THE BIBLE and the sequel will be co-produced with Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, and has no release date as of yet, but I would expect NBC is going to throw even more budget money at this project than History did. It would also not be outside the realm of possibility to see NBC trying to find a way to make this an ongoing series.

I tried watching THE BIBLE to see what the fuss was all about and I just couldn't get into it. The production values were good but the writing was atrocious and the show was just, well, boring. I was a much bigger fan of VIKINGS, mainly due to the inclusion of Gabriel Byrne. Hey, maybe if they cast Byrne in THE BIBLE sequel I may watch.

Extra Tidbit: Other titles: THE DARK CHRIST RISES or THE BIBLE 2: JEWS IN SPACE

BIBLE 2: JUDGEMENT DAY is actually spot-on. Based on that title, it'll pick up right where the last one left off.

They should do a series about the Wandering Jew, in the style of the old 'Incredible Hulk' TV series.

"Accused of a crime he did not commit and cursed with immortality until Christ's return..."

Well, I guess the History channel realized the stories they were telling weren't in fact history so NBC decided they make this into a television drama instead. Fine by me.
