Terminator animated series coming to Netflix
Skydance and Netflix has recently revealed their partnership to produce a Terminator animated series based on the popular film franchise.
This Terminator animated series will be streaming on Netflix and will be produced by Studio IG with Mattson Tomlin as showrunner.
Tomlin was quoted saying:
Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. I’m honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts.
For John Derderian, Netflix, Vice President of Japan & Anime, the series represents a take on the franchise that’s unique. “Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created–and has only grown more relevant to our world over time,” said Derderian. “The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans.” For Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President and CEO of Production I.G, it’s the challenge of adapting the franchise in a medium that it hasn’t adapted into before- a medium that someone close to Ishikawa thought they would be out of their minds to consider. “I asked my long-time friend and colleague Mamoru Oshii what he thought about the idea of turning Terminator into an animated series. His response was “Ishikawa, are you out of your mind?” At that instant, I was confident we should get on board,” Ishikawa explained. “As huge fans, our team at Production I.G is putting their heart and souls into creating this series. We hope fans will enjoy it!”
The film franchise recently released Terminator Dark Fate which set a new tone and new characters for the franchise while bringing back the original female badass Linda Hamilton in the mix as Sarah Connor once more.
