The Terminator Getting 13 Episode TV Series


Skydance, the company behind Terminator: Genisys, is not finished with the property yet.  They have claimed a sequel will release in 2017 (good luck with that) but, apparently, they’re also touting a cable TV series.  One that will probably be connected with the latest movie.

At a press day for Genisys, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg offered an update on the series, suggesting it might be a 13-episode offering on cable.

“It’s something that we’re developing as we speak”, Ellison tells Collider. “To speak kind of larger to that, one of the things we would love to do at Skydance—it’s a very lofty goal—is to build worlds across multiple mediums. And to me, I think everyone talks in Hollywood about franchises, ‘it’s a franchise business, it’s a franchise business’. I think that’s a slightly old-fashioned word, and I think it’s a world creation business. The dream for us would be to be able to obviously make films, television shows, we have a video game with Glu, comic books, and they all should be standalone experiences. If you just watch the movies or if you just watch a television show, it’s a complete experience. But if you are the kind of fans that we are over this material, and you watch all of it collectively, it all interweaves to feel like a larger universe that you can experience if you’re a huge fan of Terminator or any of the other franchises that we’re fortunate to work on, that’s really when you talk about the future of Skydance, one of the things that we really want to be a part of building.”

It seems the suffering for this franchise is never ending.  Just a side thought… don’t try and seek refuge in the novels, I read one of them in the 2000s and it was really, really bad.
