February 27, 2021
Netflix and Skydance announce a new anime series based on the globally successful Terminator franchise, the first animated TV adaptation of the franchise.

The series is produced in partnership with Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, B: The Beginning) who Netflix has a Production Line Deal with since 2018.

Showrunner/Executive Producer: Mattson Tomlin (Project Power, The Batman)

Mattson Tomlin: "Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. I'm honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts."

John Derderian, Netflix, Vice President of Japan & Anime: "Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created--and has only grown more relevant to our world over time. The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can't wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans."

Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President and CEO of Production I.G: "I asked my long-time friend and colleague Mamoru Oshii what he thought about the idea of turning Terminator into an animated series. His response was "Ishikawa, are you out of your mind?" At that instant, I was confident we should get onboard. As huge fans, our team at Production I.G is putting their heart and souls into creating this series. We hope fans will enjoy it!"

Wanna see that liquid metal dealing damage then getting its ass kicked by Arnold S again. Making me happier I subscribed to Netflix. how I only wish #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague will air on it , too, and all DC stuff for that matter.

This could be the perfect way to rejuvenate franchise. Hopefully it's good.

Hopefully, they won't do the same story all over again. For all of its flaws at least Salvation was different.

Haven't cared about the franchise in a long time. Imo,each successive film has been a case of diminishing returns. But I'm kind of intrigued by this.
