FROM MTV MOVIES BLOG: On the eve of “Terminator Salvation’s” release this week, Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello brings word that Fox has officially canceled the struggling “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” which concluded its second season in April with a questions-raising. As a fan of the series, I had hoped Fox would capitalize on the positive buzz surrounding “Salvation” to give the series one last push, but it is not to be.
Television is usually outside of our coverage zone here on MTV Movies Blog, but the “Connor” cancellation is noteworthy because of the larger issues the show addressed with regards to the franchise. Since the “Chronicles” started, fans have understood that Lena Headey’s Sarah and Fred Dekker’s John existed in an alternate timeline. This is all thanks to a plot twisting pilot in which the duo, along with sexy Terminatrix Cameron (Summer Glau), jump a decade forward in time to escape yet another Connor-hunting Skynet initiative.
