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".
