Terminator: Dark Fate is the direct sequel to Terminator 2,” James Cameron said in the recently released BTS featurette. He’s returning to the franchise he launched back in 1984 as a producer. “We pick up the characters that we knew from terminator 2, and we carry them forward.”

“We continue the story with Jim back in the writing and producer’s chair,” director Tim Miller (Deadpool) says. “He knows the material like nobody else. I think for fans of the franchise, the biggest thing is Linda’s return.”
