If you’ve been poking around, you might have already seen the news, but, if not, here’s what I know about The Selection pilot as of right now:


We are not on the fall schedule. And it turns out this is a good thing! The pilot, while very strong, wasn’t quite what people (not sure which people) thought it could be. But instead of dropping the show entirely, the CW plans to reshoot it.


From what I understand, the writers and producers are staying, and Aimee will stay on as America for sure, but some of the characters might be replaced and the script might be reworked. I have no clue and no say over who stays and goes, and I don’t know what they would change in the script. I pretty much find things out as they happen, about 5 minutes before you guys do. Sometimes not even that!


It sounds like the CW plans to move quickly, so we might see news in the next few months. If the pilot looks better the second time around, we might see the show air in mid-season (I think that means in the spring) or next summer. And that is actually a good thing, too!


There’s a chance that Book 2 will be out before or near the time the show would air, which means there’s more world for you to be grounded in. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m WAY into reading books before watching the shows or movies, so this possibility makes me happy.


And I think that’s everything. Stay tuned, of course. TV stuff seems to happen fast! I’ll keep you posted!

Amanda Inkenbrandt That's so exciting! I'm glad they're reshooting it, rather than scrapping it. I loved the book and can't wait to see it translated to the screen.

Tennille Yay I can't wait to see it! I am loving the book!

Kaitlyn So excited! I hope we get more news in the next few months. I am really looking forward to seeing The Selection on the screen. I'm glad it's a TV show rather than a movie - with a TV show, hopefully more details will be included.

Lalie Vallesteros YAY:D Can't help but to anticipate for all of this! I just hope they wouldn't change the entire original story line. Congratulation Ms. Kiera Cass <3

Kate Awesome. The CW probably really wants this to work since they cancelled the Secret Circle which was sad I like that show, but gosh I hope they do this one correctly. I mean with VD I feel like they had a ton of room to work around, but how can they spread this one out I'm not sure, but interested to see for sure.

Deska Hua! I am actually so excited over this news.. But I have really bad trauma with CW drama (one particular CW drama) because of that show TV writers (in my opinion) actually ruin the show.. and cause me stop watching the tv show.

I hope this won't happen with The Selection, but I will definitely keep reading the book.. already fall in love with Maxon and America characters so much..

Thank you!
