With the Terminator franchise set to return to cinema screens this week, in a round of publicity interviews it has been revealed that a Terminator series will be heading our way.

It was attempted to create a TV terminator Universe back in 2008 when the Sarah Connor Chronicles were developed by Fox, but after just 2 seasons the series was cancelled.

Now it seems that a new 13 episode Terminator TV series is being developed which will overlap into its movie universe according to Skydance CEO David Ellison.

In an interview with Collider Ellison said,

“It’s something that we’re developing as we speak. 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.”

When asked if the storyline of the series was link to the movies he went on to say, “Anything we do along those lines, it will absolutely have connective tissue. It would be a mistake and a little old-fashioned to have a television show and a movie, both based on something that actually don’t cross over in any way, shape, or form.”
