Previously, there was a TV show based on the Terminator franchise called Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles. It didn’t have a long run, but it was loved by many fans to the extent that it remains a beloved part of the franchise. Many wanted it back after it was cancelled. With Terminator: Genisys coming to theaters this week, it’s not too big a surprise that some studios are considering a Terminator TV series to help build upon the (hopeful) momentum the franchise will have. Skydance (Skydance, not Skynet) CEO David Ellison spoke to Collider about the possibility of a new Terminator TV series:
Terminator Genisys seemed to be just another Terminator movie, even though it claimed to be one to reset the franchise in the right way. Then the last trailer came out, and everything changed.
Ok, so for a while you’d be fine with thinking that Terminator Genisys (which is essentially a reboot of the series while still in its timeline of sorts) was a “we actually do have a chance to change the future and stop Judgment Day” kind of thing. Mainly because we knew that the Terminators sent their agents back to an earlier time than they did in the original film. Something went wrong, and now Sarah Connor is not only fully a warrior now, she has Arnold as her bodyguard of sorts.
