What is going on!? Have we unearthed new Twilight content that warrants a whole new cast and series?! As an avid lover of this series, I think not.

Lionsgate Television has just announced that there is a Twilight TV series in the works. The original (and only) film franchise with the actors that we all know and love grossed more than $3.4 billion worldwide. I don’t know who on this good green earth thinks they can create something with the intensity the original movie series has, so good luck to them.

Sinead Daily, who has written for shows like The Walking Dead: World Beyond, has been tasked to write the new Twilight script. It has not yet been determined if the show will be a remake of the books or a completely different telling. It is said that Stephaine Meyer will be involved with the television adaptation so there is hope that they will stay by the book.

I hopped onto Twitter ready to see the absolute chaos this announcement caused, but nothing could have prepared me for the slew of passionate tweets.

Brace yourselves; these Twilight fans have some words.

This was one of the first tweets I saw. I never know for certain if this account is truthful but it certainly was this time.

Agreed. How can these new directors and producers think they can grasp even an ounce of this cinematic masterpiece?

I think any chance we (the fandom) have to use this scene, we’ll do it in an instant. It truly encompasses any upsetting situation.

I love when fandoms take interviews and relate them to the drama. This perfectly encapsulates a lot of us right now.

This man IS Edward Cullen. I’m sorry Rob; I know you want to be Batman, but you just can’t shake being a vampire.

Why else would this be happening?
