Everyone wants in on the cross-platform, expanded universe franchise game that Marvel is leading the way on, it seems. THR reports a new Terminator series is being developed for TV, and it will be done in conjunction with the planned reboot for the big screen that’s set to release in 2015.
The new report also seems to hint at what the storyline for not only the TV series but also the new Alan Taylor film may entail:
The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984) and, where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in some surprising and dramatic ways.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, who did Thor and X-Men: First Class, are on writing and exec producing duties on the new series.
So it sounds like we could have a new Terminator film in July of 2015, and a TV series to keep things going by December. Crazy. Let’s just hope it’s better than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
