Terra Nova Season 2 hangs in the balance

Steven Spielberg drama’s mediocre ratings and high budget harm chances of a second season, but producers are locking in talent for a second year

The future of Terra Nova is uncertain. While a decision on the FOX drama should come in the next few weeks, the long-term prospects for the show don’t look particularly good at the moment. Monday’s season finale garnered a passable 7.2 million viewers according to TVByTheNumbers, and even though it’s been reported by AceShowbiz that producers are locking in key talent for a second year, the high price tag of the series has to be an obstacle for FOX. Critically, the drama has been poorly received – although it should be noted that audience figures for the series have consistently hovered around 7 million for the course of its run, indicating a certain amount of loyalty from viewers.

Would you like to a see a second year of Terra Nova, or should it be canned in favour of a better sci-fi effort?
