James Cameron once said that he saw Terminator Genisys as the “true” Terminator 3 leading up to its release, but Arnold Schwarzenegger later stated that the next movie would not be a continuation of that story. Now, as work on the sixth Terminator film begins, Cameron has dismissed Genisys, along with Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, as being part of alternate continuities.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron revealed that the latest film in the series will be ignoring every movie that followed Terminator 2: Judgment Day, explaining that the other movies are part of alternate continuities. Perhaps surprisingly, Cameron revealed that he was not the one to request that his next movie ignore the other three takes on a follow-up to the first sequel, but director Tim Miller:
“This is a continuation of the story from Terminator 1 and Terminator 2. And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream. Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse. This was really driven more by [Tim] than anybody, surprisingly, because I came in pretty agnostic about where we took it. The only thing I insisted on was that we somehow revamp it and reinvent it for the 21st century.”
As it stands, none of the Terminator sequels after the first managed to live up to the first or second Terminator movie, and all of them are relatively unpopular with the fanbase to varying degrees. Genisys tried to right things by creating a new timeline altogether, but audiences were generally confused at how the already-complicated Terminator timeline got even more convoluted with one film. So perhaps it might be best just to forget about the other movies and accept the latest Terminator reboot as the official follow-up to Terminator 2 – for real this time.
The currently-untitled sixth Terminator movie is setting its sights on a release date of July 26, 2019. Its cast includes Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reprising their roles.

10 Possible Things To Look Forward To In ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 5
This week marked the season finale of the fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Suffice to say, this has been a stellar season for the show. Probably one of Marvel’s best seasons on television (depending on how you feel about Legion). Season 4 gave us 3 distinct story arcs: Ghost Rider, LMD, and Agents of Hydra, and all of them were perfect. There was the right amount of drama, actions, story, and intrigue that held us over from week to week. Despite having a later timeslot this season, the ratings (thanks to loyal fans) held strong and the show was renewed for a 5th season in the 2017-2018 season for ABC. Even though the show is now in the “Friday Night Death Slot,” ABC President Channing Dungey is not worried as he feels the show has a strong enough fanbase to still do a great job, which it why Inhumans and Once Upon a Time will also share Friday nights with them.
As stated before, the season finale was an exceptional close to an explosive season.
