Terminator TV series on the way

New show will accompany 2015 reboot

The Terminator franchise is expanding beyond the already-confirmed big-screen reboot, with Skydance and Anapurna planning a new TV series to be created in conjunction with the next film.

The new series is being written and produced by Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, while the writers of the new film, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, will also be involved as executive producers.

The new film and new series are expected to share an interlinked narrative, which is expected to take the franchise in a new direction to the one established by the original film and its sequels.

This isn’t the first time a Terminator series has been commissioned, with The Sarah Connor Chronicles struggling to carve out a significant audience, before eventually being cancelled.

The new film is currently in the process of casting its leading roles, with Brie Larson and Emilia Clarke the current frontrunners to play Sarah Connor. Tom Hardy is thought to be in line for John Connor, while Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to return.

      From what I heard the SCC was actually a good show.

      it was a cool show but the john connor was kinda miscast, he played a sullen teenager for way too long. it got cancelled as soon as it got good. it started to address the theme of time travel a bit, like how future skynet can subvert the past in ways other than killing the connors

      The first season was good, as was episode 1 of the second season. After that, things sadly fell flat in my opinion.

      @ilikescifi: Did we just post two completely contradictory reviews of the series at the same time? Wow.

      I agree with ilikescifi - i thought it started to pick up and got better towards the end. It finished on a cliff-hangar as well - i'm still annoyed they didn't give us a resolution to it.

      and i can't believe that they are re-booting this. Just give us a future-set war and show us how John Connor finally beats skynet. I always thought the time-travgel aspect of the first 2 worked well, in terms of events affecting the future. It kind of played out that you couldn't change the future - the events in the future occur because of what happens when the Terminator is sent back (John is conceived, Cyberdyne adapt technology from the chip, etc). They should have stuck with that canon and ended the new film with Connor ending up being the one who sent the Terminator back because Skynet realised you can't actually change anything and so abandoned the tome jump (maybe the time portal will expand and destroy anything if not used - so connor sends the Terminator back and lies to Reece) - that way, you could have a final battle with Skynet that we don't know about from the things told to us in the first film

      Have the film set 1000 years in the future when terminators have won. then they invent humans again from john conners DNA (which they find in amber) and humans takeover in that future and john conners clone goes back in back in time to kill the terminator baby which leads the terminators to kill off the humans for a second time!
