In a panel at the Producers Guild of America conference Produced By, Mark Burnett said that he and wife Roma Downey aren’t done yet with the Bible: “Roma and I will do a follow-up, 100 percent. Something big,” he said, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter and Chicago Tribune.

Their epic mini-series The Bible, which was broadcast on the History Channel, garnered record numbers of viewers during its 10-episode run in April. Nearly 12 million people watched the Easter Sunday finale. Christian Retailing reports that the DVD and Blu-ray edition sold more than 500,000 units in its first week of release, making it the top-selling TV program on DVD in the last five years and the best-selling miniseries ever on Blu-ray, digital HD and DVD.

He also told the panel that the three-hour mini-series has been edited down to a feature-length movie about Jesus. “I believe in the next 15 years, more people on the planet will have seen our Bible series than not seen it,” he said.
