Just a few days after FOX decided to cancel the second season of "Terra Nova", another channel already expressed interest to revive the pricey prehistoric drama. Deadline reported that video streaming giant, Netflix, is currently having a discussion with 20th Century Fox TV to save the dinosaur series from extinction.
Multiple sources revealed that the discussion is still in the early stage and it is still unclear whether the two parties would materialize it into a formal negotiation. Should the deal be made, it will mark 20th and Netflix's new partnership after the streaming company recently revived "Arrested Development", another high-end series axed by FOX.
On Monday, March 5, "Terra Nova" lead actor Jason O'Mara took to his Twitter to announce that the Australia-shot show has officially been canceled by FOX, but 20th insisted to keep the big-budget series alive by shopping it to other networks. He wrote, "Bad news guys, Terra Nova has been cancelled by @FoxBroadcasting. We're gonna try and get another network to do it. Stand by."
"Terra Nova", which has Steven Spielberg serving as the exec producer, will likely become the highest-rated canceled show of the season. Though it has averaged 7.52 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, the executives at FOX were not too fond of the show since it was deemed one of the season's most expensive series to produce.
