Cancellation Buzz: Terminator is Unofficially Terminated - Featured


While it remains unchanged that the official word won't be given until FOX upfronts on May 18th, Michael Ausiello is reporting that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is in fact canceled.


Ausiello reveals that an inside source of his has commented that "It's done" and to "Consider it canceled". Furthermore, the source claimed that everyone on the show has known this information for a few weeks.


Until May 18th, we can hope the source is wrong...

I'm so bummed! Frak'n Fox never stands by their shows. Dollhouse is next I presume. Hopefully SyFy will have the balls to pick T:TSCC's up because I agree wiht Dubbs_NW; it was a great season finale, but a disastrous series finale.

NOOOOOOO! MOTHER FRAK FOX!
Bad news: I just founded out Terminator was cancelled today
Good News: I got a ticket for driving without a license when it was supposed to be suspended; because I paid my ticket (luckily I wasn't arrested). I looked it up on the internet and it is actually a very common even if you pay your ticket the DMV of many states likes to scam you and not put it in their system especially if they gave you the 1 month warning. For future reference, anyone who gets a ticket make sure you not only call the Clerk of Courts but the DMV also and give them proof you paid AND TOOK THE CLASS IF YOU DID to avoid getting your license suspended. I won my argument in traffic court today (hire a lawyer my ass I had proof coppers hahaha). They threw out the $130 ticket but wouldn't refund me the $65 dollars that I paid to renew my license (otherwise I would have had to drive around for six weeks without a license). *sigh* Damn crooked cops still cheated me out of $65. Oh if you dont have any proof hiring a lawyer is good because all of the lawyers know the judges and give them a cut (i am not lying or exaggerating I know FOR A FACT-racketeering bastards).
The BEST PART of my DAY: Caprica is UP YAY!
ALL IN ALL IT WAS A GREAT DAY!I DIDNT EVEN HAVE TO USE MY AK!(old icecube song) LOL

Still MOTHER FRAK FOX!

That is terrible news. Not only is the show at a creative high -- the season finale was top-notch -- but they had the potential of drawing a greater audience after Terminator: Salvation is released, as I'm sure that would re-popularize the franchise. Disappointing.

WTF??? It was an awesome SEASON finale, but to have that as a series finale...Fox you need to get some new staff who know what a good scifi is, cos frankly, the ones there are shite!!!This was great. It's gooing to pull in even more viewers after the Terminator salvation movie gets released, but if you want to keep your streak of cancelling good scifi shows then go ahead.
I want more from this!! I was so hoping to see what happened next. I am sooooo not satisified with that.

never say never guys. Whilst Fox may be cancelling it, another network may pick it up after Terminator: Salvation comes out. I'm still almost convinced I saw Jesse in a trailer fot it! In my eyes, the season finale last week will not be the last episode. Even if they take a break for a year while someone else picks it up. Remember folks Buffy got cancelled but another network picked it up. And lets not forget Family Guy which was cancelled only to be resurrected a couple of years later.
And yes, jackieu0225, Dollhouse is probably next. Prison Break deserves it, but not Sarah Connor.

I heard through second hand sources that one of the writers posted the following on twitter:
"Time for Ausiello's semi-annual SCC termination report. False again. (Remember "sets were destroyed" report? Now you know context, people)."
So there is hope yet. Not a lot of hope, but hope. It ain't over 'till it's over.

=============== What U expect, it's FOX......
All they know how to do is disappoint SCIFI fans with any series they try to put on. Unless it's American Idol they really don't care about real programming. I already contacted Scifi.com through their FEEDBACK in hopes they add the series to their line up. Hopefully it's all a bad rumor based on very misleading information. The ratings system is terrible enough and I feel most fans watch in online now on their own free time instead of Friday nights.
Salvation will spark a new interest in Terminator and they'll hate themselves for abandoning the series. I remember when it first started U couldn't miss an ad for Terminator and now it's as if they didn't want to waste their time on promoting it.
I'm on Facebook posting up to all the hardcore fans this disappointment so they're aware of it as well.

Series was amazing up until the last 2 min of the final episode when it just seemed like the ending was rushed, everyone is separated and no closer is given with anything. If the cast and production knew this was going to be the final episode I would think they would atleast tie up loose ends or atleast end it with them not being able to stop Dday and history?(Future?) repeating its self.

if fox does indeed cancel this show, someone else absolutely must, must, must pick it up.
it's completely smart, well-written, emotionally savvy, character-driven stuff; wonderfully committed storytelling that really genuinely
grapples with the intertextual narrative of which it's a part. also, solid to superb performances, with more of the latter than the former. summer glau, of course, is extraordinary, and in this season finale (not series finale, damnit), she simply knocks it out of the park. the young man who plays john connor is also really showing he has the muscle for this role. and we still get derek, who has caused me to completely reverse myself on the man who plays him (i absolutely no longer hold 90210 against you, sir!).
finally, the link-up with the kyle-n-john part of the story was beautifully done, so painful and simultaneously rewarding, and so promising... damns...
i like dollhouse a lot, but if you have to cancel one, take that one (no offense to anyone on that project, of course). please, please, please, fox, don't cancel terminator: the sarah connor chronicles!

one more thing:
if fox keeps it on the air, i will watch it with advertisements and do my living best to buy something they're selling on every grocery trip.
and i resent advertisements more than anyone i know. come on, fox execs, we understand that $ is your bottom line, and we're willing to pay.

per proofray's advice above, here's my email to the SciFi Channel, asking them to pick up the show, if it does get canceled:
Hello Nice Folks at the SciFi Channel,
If Fox is asinine enough to cancel yet another brilliant show, please, please, please pick up Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles!!!!!!
I hate watching commercials with a white hot flamey passion, but if you do keep this show on the air and preserve all that is good about it, I will watch it with commercials. I will also try to buy something from one of your advertisers on every grocery trip.
Thanks for reading & hope all is well in your world,
leviphi

Fox needs to get their sh*t together! TSCC IS (note the optimism of the present tense) a great show. If that really was the series finale that blows dogs for quarters because there are still a million questions that need answering. I hate this: they get you hooked, build up a narrative with wicked characters then just pull the rug out from under you!

Im going to be pissed if they cancel this show. I watch an episode and right after I'm already dying for the next. It would be a waste of an excellent show because u idiots put it on the worst night of the week. Honestly if u guys cancel this i will probably stop watching fox's shows. Also have a nice day. :P
