There has been no official word on a sequel to The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. But now it seems a TV series may be crafted instead of a third movie.

Troy Duffy, who wrote and directed both Boondock Saints and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, has revealed that there is interest in turning the franchise into a weekly Boondock Saints show.

Here's what the writer-director had to say below, indicating that franchise stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus would return as the McManus brothers for this small screen project.

"We've been approached to do a possible Boondock Saints TV series. So the fans may be getting a part 3 as a television show. We might be able to pull that off....I actually called both Sean and Norman and they both said 'Hell yeah, we'll drop everything.'

When asked if the possible TV suitor is a cable network such as HBO or AMC, Troy Duffy simply replied, "That is correct." One of those networks could likely allow the type of violence and language fans of Boondock Saints have come to expect and enjoy in this particular movie series.

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was released October 30th, 2009 and stars Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Clifton Collins Jr., Julie Benz, Bob Marley, Brian Mahoney, David Ferry. The film is directed by Troy Duffy.

Boondock Saints was released January 21st, 2000 and stars Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, David Della Rocco, Billy Connolly, David Ferry, Brian Mahoney, Bob Marley. The film is directed by Troy Duffy.

    Please my friends... Lots of actors do two series at once. There is a lot of potential for a popular series. There is also a lot of evil injustice to pick through on our continent. Why all the negativity? Norman and Sean every week? Bring 'em on!!! I love the idea!!!

    oh, no no no no!! This is a HORRIBLE idea! A TV series will drag out and kill the 'Saints. I think a third movie would work just fine.
    To see the brothers get out of prison, and see what agents Smecker and Bloom can do with the Catholic Church as back-up are two things that the second movie left hanging. Making a third movie to wrap that up could make a satisfying conclusion. Or, if Duffy chooses, he can make it open ended again for a fourth.

    But NOOO SERIES!!!!

    I agree that a series is a bad idea but I don't see why the 2nd movie should have been garbage... I loved the first and I loved the second one and I would love the 3rd aswell but please no series!

    at least they are keeping the original brothers, and not recasting them or making new characters that are cousins. I'll give it a chance. But I agree with most everyone, the 2nd movie was no where near as good as the first.

    As much as I loved the first film and liked the sequel, not sure this will be all that stout even on HBO but I'd love to be wrong about that. I also think Norman can play both roles if need be or he can be killed off TWD easily.

    Plus, the 2nd movie didn't have nearly the charm of the first, so a TV series is going to further water down the original movie's legacy. I don't like it.

    Ok, but Norman is a regular on The Walking Dead. Does this mean his character dies soon?
