Well guys, The Terminator said it would be back and look at this, a new film on the horizon and now another TV show is in the works. Thankfully, I love the franchise, and yes, it has had its ups and downs, but the way this new TV series is heading, I’m pretty damn excited to tell you the truth.
According to Variety, Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures — the shingles behind Paramount’s 2015 Terminator reboot have teamed up to unleash a new Terminator TV series. The shingles have Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class) to write and executive produce the upcoming series.
Now, as far as story goes, this one is said to follow “a critical moment from the first “Terminator” film — where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming television show will take that same moment in a completely different direction.”
What is interesting is that the planned TV show is said to have intersecting narratives with the upcoming Terminator film.
Megan Ellison of Annapurna will produce the Terminator TV series with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross of Skydance. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier are said to be executive producing.
As you know, this isn’t the first time that the Terminator has had a TV run. The Sarah Connor Chronicles lasted from 2008-2009, and it received mixed reviews, but it was interesting to say the least.
But with this new TV series on the way, I am highly intrigued to see where this one goes and hopefully we will be hearing more in the near future. For now, lets hear what you guys think?
