Terminator tv series in the works

deadline.com

Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures, the companies behind the upcoming Terminator film trilogy, are expanding the franchise to television with a TV series to be done in conjunction with the first rebooted Terminator film slated for release in 2015. The series will be written and exec produced by feature scribes Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), with the writers of the upcomingTerminator movie Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier serving as executive producers.

The series will follow a critical moment from the original 1984 Terminator movie, taking it in a completely different direction that the film. Plot details about the upcoming Terminator movie are being kept under wraps, but it too is expected to be tied to the first movie. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new television series progress, the two narratives will be designed to intersect with each other.

It's encouraging that they've gone with Stentz & Miller as the showrunners, since they were staffers on The Sarah Connor Chronicles, as well as just being really good writers. Of course, I'd still prefer it if we'd gotten more TSCC, but there's reason to hope that this will be the next best thing.

Which will be the first time in Terminator history that any two separate iterations are compatible.

Oh, right. I had forgotten that Stentz & Miller had worked on The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Good news.

Re: Terminator tv series in the works

I wasn't even aware they were rebooting the Terminator movie franchise and making a new trilogy, and now they're making a TV series that ties in with the films and is produced by the people behind the Sarah Connor Chronicles? Awesome news all around.

Between the new Star Wars films, Trek XIII, Justice League, the 2nd Avengers movie, and now this, it's an exciting time. It's sort of like the first half of the 80s again, which is fitting considering this reboot and others.

Are you required to say reboot in the thread title in these situations?

Agreed. I'm hoping Josh Friedman, who ran TSCC, puts his hands in this somehow. Kinda wish he'd been given the reigns of this one too, but Ashley and Zack are the next best thing in that regard.

Very interesting news. Re-opens the TSCC wound a little though--I wanted that wrap-up movie a few key actors talked about! In a crazy world this new show could be a weird opportunity to do a parallel reality episode wrap up of TSCC. Though I bet the poetry ending of TSCC is a hard thing to 'undo' in a sense without a big production.

By this point the Terminator multiverse has already diverged in a few different directions. So I think that showing us yet another diverging timeline is more along the lines of a continuation/expansion of the existing continuity. (I've been resisting drawing an analogy to the Abrams Star Trek timeline, since that's kind of an emotional trigger for some posters.)

So I suppose it's possible that Stentz & Miller could drop a hint or two in their show that it and TSCC coexist in a larger sheaf of alternate realities, even if there aren't direct crossover elements. But yeah, it would be nice if they could connect them more overtly somehow.

Interesting.

Also... I liked JMS' Terminator comic last week set in the time lab in the future as John is sending every one back into all the movies.

So that was a good read? I decided since it's a limited maxi-series to just get the Trade a year from now. Be cheaper anyway, glad to hear some positive word on it.

Glad the ZackAsh are involved with this as they were with TSCC.

It's made me want to watch the painful fourth movie again.

Re: Terminator tv series in the works

We had a TV series, it's probably better than anything we will get in these movies.

They have to make all these new things before they lose the rights in 2017/2018 to James Cammeron.

Re: Terminator tv series in the works

Cameron doesn't get the rights until 2019, actually. But even once he gets them, he could theoretically re-sell or at least lease them out.

I'd be curious what the legal issues might be if the show is still on come 2019 and the rights reversion. Could such a show continue after such via being grandfathered? Or would it have to stop if Cameron said so at that point?

I, for one, wish Jim Cameron would get his head out of his ass and do good stuff again. Like he used to. Titanic ruined that man. Another example of success going to one's head. OK, he doesn't want to do more Terminator? That's his call. But Avatar isn't his best work by far. He could do much more if he tried. Too busy under the sea though...
