Jurassic World is set to come to TV … but you’ll have to wait for it

Jurassic World
Universal
Jurassic World‘s huge debut, complete with multiple box office records, didn’t go unnoticed by TV networks — or anyone, really. FX announced today that they’ve nabbed worldwide TV rights to the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. The blockbuster sci-fi adventure film will air exclusively on FX, as well as sister outlets FXX and FXM.

Starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, among others, Jurassic World picks up over two decades after where Jurassic Park left off. Isla Nublar has been converted into a dinosaur theme park, but chaos ensues when a genetically modified dinosaur, the Indominus rex, gets loose and goes crazy. With nods to its predecessor, Jurassic World is nostalgic, yet filled with epic action and impressive special effects. Theaters have been filled by fans of the original and new fans alike.

The addition of Jurassic World bolsters FX’s already impressive roster of box office hits it will bring to TV. So far, the Fox Entertainment Group-owned networks have already acquired rights for fellow Universal blockbusters Furious 7 and Pitch Perfect 2, as well as 20th Century Fox’s Taken 3 and Kingsman: The Secret Service. FX is increasingly getting in the game when it comes to licensing TV rights for box office juggernauts. In fact, the TV rights for 64 percent of 2014 films grossing over $100 million were acquired by FX.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to catch Jurassic World and its latest group of dinosaurs on TV anytime soon. As of now, no dates have been announced, but EW reports that it will be at least two years before it hits the airwaves. If you aren’t one for waiting, it’s safe to say that you’ll want to join the throngs of people seeing it in theaters. You can always re-watch it on TV later.
