FOX, which is scheduled to announce its Fall line-up on Monday, May 18, has put its faith in "Bones" but crushed the hope for "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" fans. While "Bones" is getting two seasons order, "Terminator" is officially canceled following two low rating seasons.
The renewal of "Bones" comes on the heels of fierce negotiations between the producer 20th Century Fox and the FOX studio over the show's license fee. There was a time when "Bones" was pitched to other networks that may want to pick up the fifth season. However, as confirmed by creator Cart Hanson via his Twitter, both parties have reached a deal and "Bones" will continue in FOX for season 5 and 6.
As for "Terminator", it was somewhat expected since the season finale in April, which did not help in the overall rating. Nevertheless, hope was sparked when FOX decided to renew its Friday partner "Dollhouse" that also received low ratings. But in its latest report about bubble series, EW confirms that "Terminator" is officially terminated.
With the renewal and the cancellation, it is likely that the Fall schedule in FOX will include "Bones", "House M.D.", "24", "Dollhouse", "Lie to Me", "Fringe", "'Til Death", "American Idol", "The Simpsons", "Kitchen Nightmares" and "American Dad".
Meanwhile, joining "Terminator" under the bed are "Sit Down, Shut Up", "Prison Break" and "King of the Hill".
