It would seem that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been officially cancelled after two short seasons. The spin-off show’s fate is hardly a surprise, but more to the point, we’re just not that bothered, and here’s why:
It was inevitable
Nothing signals the end of a TV show quite like declining numbers and this was certainly the case with The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It’s been ailing for a while, so there really is no shock here.
Terminator Salvation is coming
With 3 June marking the release of McG’s new movie, it’s not like we’re going to have to wait long before we see Terminators rampaging on screen again.
It wasn’t very good
Despite displaying a remarkable amount of potential early on, the show’s quality dipped significantly in recent episodes with the decision to sideline major characters particularly baffling.
It might not have been great but the last episode did at least work well enough as a series ending, tying up enough loose-ends to satisfy those who had invested in the show.
Summer Glau will get work
The small screen siren who played Cameron was one of the main reasons to watch the show but we’d wager that its cancellation won’t harm her career prospects too much.
