How come “Divergent” ended? Movies, renown friendships, and her relationship with Aaron Rodgers

You may now purchase the high-seas drama “Adrift,” about a couple whose sailing trip turns into a struggle for survival after their boat is smashed by a cyclone.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Shailene Woodley has been in a number of blockbuster films and TV shows, but her portrayal of Tris Prior in the “Divergent” trilogy may be her most well-known work. The science fiction film is set in a future Chicago where people are divided into groups according to certain virtues. Woodley learns that she is unique and doesn’t belong to any one group. Theo James’s character, Four, and Woodley’s character attempt to flee their familiar lives and learn the truth about their society as the trilogy’s main characters.

Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant are three Veronica Roth books that served as the basis for the films. The first film was released in 2014, the second in 2015, and the third in 2016. Like the last films in series like “Harry Potter,” “Twilight,” and “The Hunger Games,” the third entry in the series was originally going to be broken into two parts. The movie’s first installment was released in 2016, but the second portion was never produced.

One year after the first installment, in March 2017, “The Divergent Series: Ascendant,” the second film, was planned for release. Numerous events started to occur, which led Lionsgate to deviate from their original strategy.

Although “Allegiant” was released in theaters, its box office performance fell short of expectations. The budget for “Ascendant” had to be reduced because the film didn’t earn as much money as the others. At the international box office, the film only brought in $179 million, while the competition brought in close to $300 million.

After that, the news came that the movie was no longer going to be a movie and it was going to be a spin-off television show instead. When the news came out, many in the main cast like Woodley, Miles Teller and Theo James expressed disinterest in participating in a show.

About a year after the TV show news, it was confirmed in December 2018 that the TV show was not being made after all. So even though the last movie audiences saw ended on a cliffhanger, the full conclusion to the franchise can only be found in the “Allegiant” book.


Rodgers and Woodley are no longer together. In February 2021, the two both announced that they were engaged, although Woodley said in a Jimmy Fallon interview that month that they had been engaged for a while. The engagement news came as a shock to many since their relationship had only been public for about a week. Reports indicated that they had been dating since the summer of 2020.

The quarterback and the actress called it quits in February 2022. They were occasionally spotted together after they broke off their engagement, giving the impression that they were back together, although the two are still apart.

HOW DO SHAILENE WOODLEY AND MILES TELLER KNOW EACH OTHER? Together in the 2013 romantic film “The Spectacular Now,” Woodley and Teller later appeared in all three “Divergent” films, where Teller played Peter. The two still seem to be good friends even if they haven’t collaborated since “Divergent.”

Before Woodley separated from Rodgers, the two vacationed with Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry. Woodley also posted a long caption on Instagram praising her friend for his performance in “Top Gun: Maverick.”


Some of Woodley’s most popular TV and movie roles have been in the television show “Big Little Lies,” and the movies “Divergent” and “The Fault in Our Stars.” At the beginning of her career, she played Kaitlin Cooper on the show “The O.C. and was on “Crossing Jordan.” From 2008 to 2013, Woodley played the lead, Amy Juergens on the show, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”
