New ‘Terminator’ TV Series From ‘X-Men’ Writers in Development, Will Connect to Movies

Terminator TV Series Reboot 2015

Just when you thought franchise-connectivity news was at an all-time high this week — with ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ its ‘Fantastic Fourtie-ins, and every other big-budget property under the sun — in comes a new ‘Terminator‘ TV series in development with Paramount, said to connect to the upcoming rebooted film series! Hooray for things!

From Variety, ‘X-Men: First Class‘ writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller will write and executive produce the new series with Skydance and Annapurna Pictures, said to have ties to Paramount’s upcoming film franchise under ‘Thor 2‘ director Alan Taylor. More directly than tie into the newer films, however, the new ‘Terminator’ TV series will reportedly focus on “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.”

Fans of the franchise will of course remember that FOX premiered ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ in 2008 with Summer Glau and ‘Game of Thrones‘ star Lena Headey, running for two seasons with a fairly cult following before being canceled. The new series will derive a base from the aforementioned moment of James Cameron‘s original film, but will have connections to the rebooted franchise films in 2015, as well.

Details are scarce for the moment, but what say you? Do you think TV would have better luck with another ‘Terminator’ TV series if it maintained direct ties to the films? What “critical moment” could the new series have at its center? Stay tuned for the latest, and give us your thoughts on another ‘Terminator’ TV series in the comments!
