The Event May Not Be Dead Yet…

When The Event was expectedly canceled last month, there were rumblings that the show wasn’t finished yet, as there were reportedly several discussions going about bringing the show to Netflix or a cable network. I immediately wrote that off because a canceled show being brought back is a rare feat and I wasn’t sure that a network would take a chance on The Event. However, I may be proven wrong as there’s a strong contender to bring back the show in a slightly different format.

Deadline is reporting that Syfy is currently in talks to bring The Event back to television, only this time as a miniseries. There are no details as to who would be coming back, for how long, or how many episodes the miniseries would last, but the network is reportedly hammering out the financial details to see if it would make sense to continue doing the show. Deadline also mentions that Syfy has interest in Fox’s much hyped Locke & Key, a pilot that seemed like a lock (ha) to be picked up but was ultimately left off the channel’s 2011-12 schedule.

The Event premiered last fall in very good numbers after a summer-long campaign simply asking “What is the event?”. It couldn’t sustain its numbers and after a lengthy midseason hiatus to relaunch the show failed to ignite much interest, it was one of many shows canceled by NBC. The Event starred (stars?) the likes of Blair Underwood, Jason Ritter, Laura Innes, Zeljko Ivanek, and Scott Patterson.

If The Event was brought back to TV, do you think you’d watch it? Would you rather Syfy pick up The Event, Locke & Key, both, or neither? Who do you think should return if the show gets picked up?
