The Boondock Saints is being revived as a TV series titled The Boondock Saints: Origins.The 1999 vigilante flick
Don Carmody Television (DCTV) has joined up with The Boondock Saints creator Troy Duffy to bring the Saints to the small screen. DCTV and Duffy have also launched a ‘fan-focused pre-order campaign’ which will allow fans to pre-order the series on digital download and DVD, as well as gain exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content, merchandise, and a limited edition subscription box. You can pre-order and check out all the details at the newly launched website BoondocksBack.com.
The announcement follows Duffy’s first attempt at spinning his franchise into a prequel TV series back in 2015.
The Boondock Saints centered around two brothers (Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery) who become vigilantes after killing a Russian mob member in self-defense. Although it wasn’t met with a warm critical reception, it went on to become a beloved cult classic. A sequel was released in 2009.
“A television series is the perfect medium for story telling inside the world of our beloved blue collar super heroes. The brothers have always been defenders of the people, justice, fairness and the city of Boston”, said Duffy in a press release. “In this sensitive time of human rights unrest, government scandal and civil corruption, there couldn’t be a better moment to re-launch the brothers iconic brand of justice in the Cradle of Democracy”.
