Following The Terminator: The Sarah Conn0r Chronicles was canceled after two seasons, the sci-fi epic is headed back to TV with a new series in development…
The Terminator is being brought back to life in a new film currently in production and now the science fiction series first appearing in the 1980’s will come back to life in a new TV series as well.
The Hollywood Reporter has the details:
The producers behind the upcoming fifth installment have tapped 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.
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.
There’s no word on which network could potentially land the new Terminator series, but with the new film already in the works this will likely become a hot property in the next year as long as the script and development go along as planned.
The toughest part about this series, however, is the fact that The Sarah Conn0r Chronicles was the best Terminator work in years and it only lasted two seasons due to bad ratings. The show was an underrated series starring Lena Headey, who of course then went on to star in Game of Thrones as Cersei Lannister.
