Skydance execs hint at new Terminator show for cable

At a recent interview during a TERMINATOR: GENISYS press day, Skydance CEO David Ellison and CCO Dana Goldberg lent credence to the rumors of a new Terminator series. 

Says Ellison:
It’s something that we’re developing as we speak. To speak kind of larger to that, one of the things we would love to do at Skydance—it’s a very lofty goal—is to build worlds across multiple mediums... The dream for us would be to be able to obviously make films, television shows, we have a video game with Glu, comic books, and they all should be standalone experiences.
 
If you just watch the movies or if you just watch a television show, it’s a complete experience. But if you are the kind of fans that we are over this material, and you watch all of it collectively, it all interweaves to feel like a larger universe that you can experience if you’re a huge fan of Terminator or any of the other franchises that we’re fortunate to work on, that’s really when you talk about the future of Skydance, one of the things that we really want to be a part of building.
We can hardly take that as a straight confirmation of this massive world they have in mind, considering that a lot is riding on the box office take for GENISYS, as well as the fact that Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was canceled after two seasons. However, they seem quite committed to the TV show idea and are already discussing its formatting for cable. During the interview, Goldberg went on to say:
Our gut aspiration would be a cable-driven show for something like Terminator. It’s amazing to be in the network space. We have not been a part of it yet, but obviously when you’re focused on making 13 episodes, it allows you to have more development time to dive deeper.
Some would argue that we already dove deep enough into the TERMINATOR mythology with the last three movies, but die hard fans of the Connor family can rest assured that their dreams will live on in some form or another, at least if Skydance has anything to say about it.

I hope the new series will have stronger story than The Sarah Connor Chronicles. That show has a very strong first season but very lackluster second season.

I thought when the announcement for the new movie was made they already said they were making a new tv series.
