'The Kennedys' sequel supposedly in works

ReelzChannel looking into follow-up miniseries tracing family's past four decades

You can just hear the promotional trailers boasting now, "You thought this royal American family's mid-20th century triumphs and tragedies were by turns morose and magnificent, then wait till you get a load of what the next 45 years held in store for those kooky Kennedys!" Or some truncated version of that.
According to Deadline, ReelzChannel is mulling a sequel to "The Kennedys," the miniseries that put them on the map back in 2011 and garnered an Emmy for lead actor Barry Pepper. Whereas that multi-night saga -- which also starred Katie Holmes, Greg Kinnear and  Tom Wilkinson -- spanned the clan's rise to preeminence and the subsequent assassinations of brothers John and Robert, its successor would mine content from J. Randy Taraborelli's book, "After Camelot," which chronicles the four-plus decades of Kennedy life since Robert's death.

No word on whether Holmes will resume her role (though this time as Jackie O.), or who might fill the shoes of JFK's late son, John Jr., among other relevant players in recent Kennedy lore and scandal. We'll be sure to update you soon as conjecture becomes concrete.
