Terminator is headed to TV Again. Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are taking a queue from Marvel’s movie / TV strategy with bringing Terminator back into the entertainment forefront. Coinciding with Terminator 5 will be a new Terminator television show. Four years ago, much to the dismay of fans, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was canceled on Fox in favor of a second and finale season of Dollhouse. A petition was started but Fox still said no to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles : Season 3.
Now a brand new Terminator television series is on the horizon.
On the people behind the scenes of the new Terminator TV series:
“Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce a new Terminator television series that will be a companion piece to the rebooted trilogy…Stentz and Miller’s credits also include Starship Troopers and The Fall Guy. On the TV side, the duo wrote and produced Fox’s Fringe as well as The Sarah Connor Chronicles…The TV series will be produced by Annapurna’s Megan Ellison and Skydance’s David Ellison alongside Skydance chief creative officer Dana Goldberg and TV chief Marcy Ross. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will executive produce.”
On the plot of the new Terminator TV series:
The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984), and where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in surprising and dramatic ways.
