Terminator: Additional Episodes Ordered

This was posted to Fox.Com's Terminator blog last night:

FOX Terminator Blog:
Because so many of you, our most devoted fans, have been asking, we wanted to set the record straight!

While the fate of the show past production on episode thirteen is still unclear, FOX has given us the go-ahead to write two more additional episodes for this season — fourteen and fifteen.

We are hard at work writing those episodes and await news of a potential pickup for the full “back nine” (additional episodes to complete the season) in the near future. We’re crossing our fingers (and dotting our i’s) that we’ll have more good news to share with you soon…

In the meantime, keep tuning in! Get your friends interested! And thanks for all of your support.
While not a confirmation of the full back nine it isn't exactly bad news.

lol fox is really not letting this go. this is the first show that they've tried to really save and give a chance. guess it had to happen eventually. just wished there weren't so many good casualties before they realized.

^ It has a lot of online viewership according to Fox. There were so many people watching Monday's episode on Tuesday (they upload at 9:00am the next morning) that it overloaded Fox's server.

Hmm. Better than nothing, I suppose.

I wonder if they'll write 14 and/or 15 as a possible finale or treat them as normal...

Cool, I thought the show wasn't doing so well ratings wise and the last episode was excellent.

Bah, script orders don't mean anything. Shows get orders for additional scripts that never get made all the time. Hell, a few years ago Surface got a back nine pick up, and it was eventually cut to just two more episodes. I'm not ready to celebrate just yet.

TV networks are going to have to start taking this into account in addition to the overnight numbers when it comes to saving/axing shows.

And yet they're still talking about canceling it? I thought they were finally starting to take the online viewership into acount when they were talking about ratings and popularity.

I just hope if it does still get cancelled that we can get at least get some sort of a conclusion.

None of that talk has come from FOX itself though has it? Seems generally just to be people speculating.

Could be wrap up episodes. Tie it all off as neatly as possible.

^ Possible. Personally I think that if they do get the back nine episodes they'll be told to wrap up the series.
