According to Forbes, Syfy have an interest in developing 1995 post-apocalyptic aquatic sci-fi flop Waterworld as a made-for-TV sequel or TV series.
Syfy President Dave Howe “sees it as an underexploited piece of intellectual property. That’s because every time it airs on Syfy, it attracts a surprisingly large viewership. (Around 400,000 viewers watched the last airing.)
“While a theatrical sequel of Waterworld was ‘never really on the cards,’ according to Howe, a series inspired by the film is something that has been ‘talked about endlessly’ and remains a possibility, he says.”
