It's no secret that for as cool a premise as FOX's big-budget sci-fi actioner 'Terra Nova' might have been, the expensive dinosaur spectacle failed to catch on enough to justify a second season. There had been talk of Netflix picking up the series for a second season at a reduced budget, but at least for now the idea seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur. So with 'Terra Nova' thoroughly on ice, what crazy twists and turns did the series' creators have lined up for 'Terra Nova' season 2?
As heartbreaking as we know it to be when our favorite shows face cancellation, the worst happens when the series ends on a note to go forever unresolved. FOX's big-budget sci-fi actioner 'Terra Nova' certainly failed to connect with audiences, but nonetheless grew more interesting toward the end of its first season, as new time-traveling mysteries were poised to loom over the second season. FOX ultimately decided not to go through with another year, but how can fans finally get the closure they've always wanted? By designing their own ending, of course!
Remember 'Terra Nova?' Yeah, we kinda don't either. Something about dinosaurs and Steven Spielberg and that guy from 'Avatar'... The show was mercifully canceled by Fox and now they're looking to recoup some of the massive production costs by selling off some of the hot rides featured on the show and they can be yours for a pretty affordable price!
Netflix may have passed on the pricey 'Terra Nova' but the online streaming and DVD rental service has no problem poaching its stars. Landon Liboiron, who played Josh on the costly dino-drama is the latest casting for Eli Roth's 'Hemlock Grove' an original horror series produced by Netflix in partnership with Gaumont International Television.
It's only been a few days since FOX announced they wouldn't be renewing freshman time-traveling sci-fi drama Terra Nova, but already it looks like Netflix could be pulling a 'Jurassic Park' on the expensive series.
Ashes to ashes, and requiem, and terra pax, and so forth. 'Terra Nova' is officially no more.
Deadline TV broke the news that after a costly, and moderately successful first season, FOX has opted not to renew the prehistoric sci-fi adventure for a second season. The network had remained somewhat non-committal on the possibility of a renewal in recent months but needed to make a decision by April in order for the series to make a potential September season premiere.
