Lifetime’s highly anticipated sequel to the made-for-television movie The Bad Seed has a new premiere date of Labor day. The new date comes following the network’s original date of Memorial Day which was pushed back following the school shooting in Texas. The film stars McKenna Grace reprising the lead role of Emma.
On May 25, McKenna made the announcement that the movie would premiere at a later date in a statement. Citing how the actor, who is a Texas native was not comfortable releasing ‘The Bad Seed Returns’ so close to the tragic event.
In the wake of the recent tragedy in my home state of Texas, we have decided to delay the release of “The Bad Seed Returns”. Lifetime and everyone involved are in agreement. I don’t feel comfortable promoting the film this week and we don’t think Monday is the right time to release it.
I was in 1st grade when Sandy Hook happened…and it feels like not much has changed since then. I remember my parents teaching me emergency action plans for going to church or the movies.
