Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles gets canceled


FOX won’t announce it for another month or so, but Michael Ausiello at EW confirms a rumor first run by FMQ Inc., that little-watched (on actually realtime television anyways) Terminator: The Sarah Connors Chronicles has been canceled. 

“It’s done,” maintains a source close to the show. “Everyone has pretty much known for a couple of weeks.” Adds a network insider: “Consider it canceled.”

For shame, too.  Though I casually got sucked into Season 1, the show really found it’s footing about five episodes into the second season and grew into one of television’s best shows.  It was legitimate appointment television, even if I was watching it on Hulu Saturday mornings.

Regardless, the show ended it’s second season on a very strong note.   Last week’s finale was as good as they come — a satisfying what-if ending, that will have fans of the terminator mythology debating and theorizing for a while. 

The real question now, however, is what is Summer Glau going to do?

    Ausiello initially rebuffed my claim that it was cancelled then decided to check it out and all of a sudden it was scoop LOL…..

    Fox has know since December 2008 that TSCC was canned. They had zero motivation and lots of ad revenue reasons to lie about it.

      Lanie, sucks that just cause he's Ausiello he gets all the props for "scooping" the story. I figured I'd try to give credit where credit was due since you've known all along.
