The 10th Kingdom Sequel: The House of Wolves


The10thKD164I know I keep harping on all these sequels that I want.  But can you really blame me, I mean there is a reason I love these movies/mini-series.  I mean the likelihood that someone is going to read this and say “hey this is a great idea” is slim to none, I admit that.  But there is always that hope that someone will read this and actually do it.

Now according to AngelFire.com, it took Simon Moore, the creator, and writer of The 10th Kingdom more than 12 years to get the original miniseries made.  That was all before 2000.  After 2000, after the NBC debut, Moore replied to fan letters with a short synopsis of the sequel (since it was hinted at in the ending of The 10th Kingdom).  He told fans that it would take place mainly in the 2nd Kingdom and would center around Wolf (who was played by Scott Cohen) this time around.  He also said that Virginia was very much pregnant.

In 2001 it was noted that all the actors, except for John Larroquette [Tony], were interested in returning for the sequel.  However, even he said he would return for a short cameo role.  He reasoned that he hated the 6-months of filming that had taken him away from his family.  Which is entirely understandable, people get homesick.

We all know there never was a sequel.  Hallmark never picked it up, and neither did NBC, even though fans have been asking for it for 11 years now.  NBC’s whole reasoning is because miniseries had dismal ratings, in America anyway, making them have little to no interest in a sequel.  Despite that though, Hallmark had more orders for the boxed tape than they could fill.  I contributed, buying both the video boxed set and the DVD when it came out on DVD.

There is a little hope, though.  As of March 2004, Moore said in an interview:

“I would love to continue the adventures of Wolf and Virginia, but there are a number of obstacles in the way. However, as some of you know, The 10th Kingdom took nearly twelve years to get made, so don’t give up on a sequel quite yet!”

In 2006, Moore gave a little less hopeful response saying:

“Most of you know that a second series of 10th Kingdom is something I would love to do, but we will all have to wait until the time is right and the opportunity presents itself. I have no more news on the subject, but if it is meant to happen, then one day it will…”

I would love a sequel, heck even a prequel would be excellent.  Who says it has to be another miniseries.  It could be a movie or even a TV SeriesFairy Tale shows are all the rage at the moment.  So why not?

If you would like to see a sequel, you can sign The 10th Kingdom Sequel Petition.  I did!

  3. Still patiently waiting for prequel/sequels to one of the best by far fantasy/fairytale series. Can’t believe at a time when we have so many superhero and GoT genres shoved at us, no one is willing to produced this. Too family orientated, not enough sex & violence???? This was one series, no matter the age, which we could all sit down and laugh (sometimes even sing & dance) like crazy to.

  4. I am a huge fan of the 10th kingdom and first started watching it on VHS (subtitles were not even available). The 10th kingdom made me realize how much I love fantasy. Its been my all time favorite since I was a little girl. You have no idea how happy I was to be able to rebuy it in Blue ray (subtitles available). I have been waiting and hoping for years that people will realize how amazing the 10th kingdom is and want more and maybe just maybe they will finally do the sequel as promised (the way it ended).
