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.
