Fans of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” which was canceled by Fox back in May, should be happy to learn that there are talks of a possible Direct-to-DVD movie in the works.
Thomas Dekker who plays John Connor, recently just confirmed that the show may not entirely be dead just yet. In an interview with TV Addict at the Annual FanExpo held at the Toronto Convention Center, Dekker insists that there is still hope for the ratings challenged show to continue in the format of a Made-For-DVD movie. Here’s what Dekker had to say:
“They’ve spoken about doing a TV movie. 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 James Middleton that’s where they are with it.”
As if the possible return of the show via DVD is not enough, Dekker also hinted at what we can expect if indeed this project advances.
“I’ve divulged too much in the past [so I have to be careful as to not piss off Josh] but 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? I know which one that is, and it was the more interesting of the two to me. Plus what is she doing in the past? Also my sort of relationship with Allison and finding Cameron would play a large part in the season, do I go with the robot I know or do I go with the human that doesn’t know me? The fact that Danny Dyson became a very important part of it was also very exciting because it harkened back directly to the second film.”
For a show that doesn’t ever seen to received any good news, this is probably the best news any “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” can hope to hear. We’ll have more as the story develops, in the mean time, keep your fingers crossed. Even though all this may just be rhetoric and producer discussion, let’s not forget that is possible for a dead show to return and find success (Family Guy, Futurama).
