Terminator: The Sarah
Connor Chronicles is an American television series that premiered on Sunday, January 13, 2008 on the U.S. television network Fox. It is a continuation of the Terminator film franchise. Produced by Warner Bros. Television and C2-Pictures, it will revolve around the life of Sarah Connor, and her son, John
Connor after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
The series is being executive produced by Terminator 3 producers and C2 Pictures co-presidents Mario Kassar and Andrew G. Vajna, C2 Senior Vice President James Middleton, David Nutter, and Josh Friedman, who is also writing.
At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah, John, and the Terminator successfully destroy the T-1000 and the arm and computer chip from the first Terminator. Sarah and John then watch as the Terminator is lowered into a molten steel pit in an attempt to destroy all future technology that could be used to create Skynet. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous and complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies -- from the future and the present -- could attack at any moment.
Prompted by the return of Terminators into their lives, Sarah and John decide to stop running and focus on stopping the launching of Skynet. They are aided by Cameron
, a Terminator who poses as a student at John's school and whose mission is to protect John. Meanwhile, FBI Agent James Ellison pursues Sarah and John with the belief that Sarah is deranged.
An advanced script review by TV Squad revealed that time travel will play a major role in the series premiere including a temporal leap for the main characters from 1998 to 2006. The pilot episode as broadcast takes place in August and September 1999 with a jump to September 2007. Three video clips from the upcoming series premiere published on the IGN website included the hunter Terminator using Sarah's voice over the phone to find John, Sarah and John fighting over their current situation, and the hunter Terminator looking for John, Sarah, and Cameron at the Dyson residence.
