Producer of the Fox series said that the beginning of the new season may be explosive but there will also be smaller episodes with deeper characterization.
The brand new second season of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", one to watch this week, will open with explosive and full-action sequences packed with CG animation. But as a balance to that, in the weeks to come, it will also pick up episodes that are not as high-octane, taking audience to a journey deeper into the character's mind.
Introducing its sophomore cycle, Fox said that the season will show that "life for the Connors intensifies as their relationships are challenged and the present and the future begin to become one." In line with that executive producer Josh Friedman noted, "There's the people who really come for the action, there's people who really come for the characters, and then there's the large Venn diagram in the middle, which is the people who want both. And I think those are the ones that ultimately, I think, are the most pleased consistently because they'll get one or the other during the week."
The new season that airs tonight (September 8) at 8:00 P.M. will also see a batch of new characters including Catherine Weaver (played by Garbage's Shirley Manson) who will be the CEO of Zeira Corp and Riley (Leven Rambin) who serves as the new mate of John (Thomas Dekker).
The first episode which is titled "Samson and Delilah", will deal with the aftermath of Sarkissian's attack, and focus more on Agent Ellison allies with Charley Dixon. It will also put John in the position where he will lead the future rebellion but have to prevent the androids from the future from killing him. Sarah (Lena Heady) tells John, "If you die, they win."
