'Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles' TV Movie Planned


'Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles' TV Movie Planned


Thomas Dekker confirms that producers are gathering thoughts to have a continuation of the Connors saga in a direct-to-DVD film.

"Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" is not so dead after all. Talks are still active to bring back the show as a final curtain call for the fans, although it may no longer be a series. Thomas Dekker aka John Connor revealed in an interview with TV Addict that it may as well be a direct-to-DVD movie.

"They've spoken about doing a TV movie," the 22-year-old said. "Well, not a TV movie, but kind of like a direct-to-DVD movie. Obviously it's difficult because the show is based on a movie and they just had one come out, so it's kind of hard to make a movie with our show because everyone has kind of forgotten about us. But they're hoping, at least when I spoke to [Producer] James Middleton that's where they are with it."

"TTSCC" was officially canceled in mid May following two low-rating seasons while it's Friday partner in midseason, "Dollhouse", which also experienced the same problem was given another chance. "In the end, it really came down to DOLLHOUSE or us and that was sort of what happened. I think we were too expensive and DOLLHOUSE was a lot cheaper," Dekker revealed his theory.

Also in the interview, Dekker spilled on what might happen if a third season was ordered. "...I mean it was going to be really interesting because there were questions in the future like is Sarah Connor at the age she would be in the future or is she already dead?," he teased, adding that his relationship with Allison and Cameron may also be explored further.

Off from his terminator duty, Thomas Dekker is taking feature movie roles in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and in an indie called "All About Evil".

    Ever since TSCC was cancelled I haven't bothered investing time watching any series on Fox. They seem to have a talent for canning the best shows and keeping the worst. So whatever long running series they may have will by definition suck. On the plus side, I'm in the process of re-watching TSCC on DVD. It's even better than I remember on TV. The show really was ahead of its time (no pun intended).

    I'm with a few of these people, I stopped watching FOX because of their backwards marketing and removal of the best shows. FOX is like a bad grocery mart, they never have what you want and when they start to sell something you DO want, it's gone 2 weeks later. REALLY bad move for the FOX network. It's almost 2012 and we're still waiting on that dvd/tv movie. Dollhouse sucked so bad.... worst ratings ever, I can't believe they replaced TSCC with that crap. Give us a 3rd season, lest you be fools.

    I know this is way off topic, but after reading the bit about two seasons with low ratings, it made me think of how the House time slot is always being raped and stolen by stupid bullshit and the fact that when they do show House, it's usually a re-run, instead of a new episode. I honestly think that the network execs are trying to kill the view ratings on House in order to justify cancelling it and I think that's just plain rotten of Fox to pull.

    Epic FAIL FOX! this show was probably the best show in term of characters development and plot twists, you could have taken it anywhere and we would follow, but instead you took it to the back yard and shot it... no more watching FOX for me.

    I was devastated when they cancelled TSCC. For the past few nights I've been re-living it all (again!) via the DVD's and that Season 2 ending, which opens up so many possibilities, makes me thirst for more. As has been said in previous posts, the Cameron character is just so intriguing. In the same way we saw Arnie's character in T2 develop an understanding of human emotion ("I know now why you cry"), the big question with Cameron was could she develop emotion, or even love? Add to this the development of John Henry and who knows what the overall consequences of such developments would mean for the outcome of the war. I also have to mention Lena Headey who is so fantastic in the Sarah Connor role, as is Thomas Dekker as John Connor ... in fact the whole cast was great. As the characters in the show cling on to hope for the future, so do I for the return of this fantastic show.

    The TSCC ratings were not THAT low...anyone can go online and see that by the end of Season 2, TSCC was down to anywhere between 3 and 4 million viewers per episode, which is not bad considering it has been shifted to the Friday night time slot for weeks and weeks. It probably could have retained the 5-6 million viewer base that Season 2 began with in the fall of 2009, if FOX not made that move. Surely FOX realizes its mistake now though: the 'Dollhouse' series that basically replaced TSCC only garnered 2 million viewers or even less for most of its Season 2 episodes. TSCC was providing FOX with double the number of viewers that Dollhouse was. Josh Friedman probably also now realizes his error, but too late. Viewers obviously wanted more Cameron character development, which he and his team could have easily been provided. Why did they effectively lower thew show's ratings by focusing on other elements? The majority of viewers were (are!) obviously taken by the Cameron character, and how she struggles with her situation. It is very interesting and could have been granted even a little more treatment, in order to boost the ratings and thereby keep the show alive. A DVD movie, or any other kind of production, would certainly be an easy sell. Last time I checked, a solid base of 5-10 million viewers is not bad at all!

    Typo: I meant to type "fall of 2008" in the second sentence of that last post. TSCC Season 2 began on Sept 8/08 ("Samson and Delilah" episode) with 6.34 million viewers. From there, the ratings never dipped under 5 million, consistently staying as high as 5.82 and as low as 5.02, except for the one episode "Strange Things Happen at the One Two Point" (Nov 24/08) which garnered 4.57 million viewers (which is still more than double the Dollhouse ratings). Coincidentally, the 'Cameron' episode that aired on Dec 1/08 ("Self-Made Man") shot the ratings right back up to where they were at on Sept 22/08 (5.82 million viewers). Second most-watched episode of the entire Season 2, Mr. Friedman. As many have noted, in February 2009 when FOX moved the show to Friday nights, the ratings dropped and stayed anywhere from a high of 3.84 million on Feb 20/09 ("Desert Cantos") to the lowest 2.96 million on Mar 6/09 ("Ourselves Alone"). Which is still double the Dollhouse Season 2 ratings. Dollhouse could never get much more than 2 million viewers to watch each week, all through Sept/09-Jan/10.

    Like many others, I have not forgotten about TSCC. I'm still upset with Fox for cancelling...FAIL!!! I would love it if they brought it back on the air. But if I had to settle for a DVD movie to finish the story, I will. Look at the success of Sex and the City? It made millions in the theatre, how many years after it finished on television. If Fox had any brains, they'd rethink their decision. But...i won't hold my breath.

    Please give us closure! I would gladly pay for a DVD movie. I will never buy Terminator: Salvation on DVD though. Why more channels do not do this or make some tele-films of some of these cancelled series I will never know. You have much larger audiences then the terrible sci-fi channel's 'Saturday Night' straight-to-dvd movies they show. Just as T:tSCC got really really good it was pulled. PLEASE continue the story on DVD.

    i am extremely disappointed that the show was taken off the air. there wasnt even an announcement but it. Fox suck in so many ways from it news broadcasting to its determination as to what is a good show and what isnt. they need to take trash off the air like american dad and the simpsons and provide more thought provoking TV. also get rid of the hate mongering politican satire they call journalism

    Bring back Terminator TSCC!!! I want a 3rd Season.. This show with the amazing cast of actors, actress (especially Summer Glau & Thomas Dekker), and writers created AU - that made Terminator consuming and irresistible to fans once more...The movies (except for T2) in my opinion lack the luster what TSCC presented/gave...cough John and Cameron cough chemistry/tension...Sarah Connor - Derek Reese - Catherine Weaver - John Henry..James Ellison-- OMG! How can one not love them???? BRING THEM BACK!!! I hate FOX!

    Fox could never see a good thing.. they screw up all the good shows.. I loved firefox and that was cancelled in the middle of season... As for TSCC wasn't a big fan in the beginning... man, I'm glad I stuck around... its a great... So here's something for all the writers/directors out there. if you want you projects to die young ... sell it to fox...

    I plan to buy S2 on Blu-Ray first day; and if I can't I will order it online first day. This show must come back. I just watched the series finale again; Cameron was scary, sexy and just awesome (hence screen name). Just remember the words of Kyle, Sarah and John: "The future is not set; there is no fate but what we make for ourselves." It doesn't have to be over.

    Thomas Dekker is the best John Connor and TTSCC was a show of X-Files quality! Terminator Salvation was just an awful mess and Christian Bale was utterly forgetable(imho). The real talent and excitement was in this show, its plot twists and it's amazing cast. As with Firefly, the network is again missing the gem before their eyes. I would love to see what happens to John Connor, Kyle Reese, Cameron, etc... in the future.

    Fox really needs to consider the movie. I doubt a third season will be in the works. TSCC was the best show they have had in years. Fox kept Married with Children on for over 10 years, why can't they keep quality?

    As much as I LOVED the tv series, this may be the best thing-- after all, the whole concept has to come full circle eventually. This really isnt something you should logically extend past 3, 4,5, or even 6 seasons.CAS IN POINT-- Life on Mars-- at least they had the werewithal to end it--REALLY end it.

    I like the movie idea. This should have been never longer than 2 seasons. If it was a 3rd season, the plot would just drag on too much. There were a few weak episodes in the 2nd season when they should have figured it to end it without any questions. End it strong with a 2hr movie and be done with it to satisfaction and strong conclusion.

    I would love a 3rd season, but if this is all we're going to get, i'll take it with both hands. Season 2 had the best cliffhanger ending i've ever seen, leaving things unsaid but in a way that could let the next season do anything they wanted. Oh dear God let this come to pass.
