In a move that should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, the Terminator franchise has been terminated.
Critics hated it. You probably did, too. Or maybe you didn’t even bother to watch it (which, judging by the box office results, is pretty likely). Yes, it seems Terminator Genisys has failed to revive the long-dead franchise; as the TV spin-off and planned sequels, once set for 2017 and 2018, are now on “indefinite hold.”
We all know it’s only a matter of time before Terminator is rebooted (again) in some form, but the franchise is currently back on the backburner. And for those hoping to see James Cameron come to the rescue when the rights revert to him in 2019, don’t hold your breath: he’s going to be hanging out in Avatar-land for the next few years, and should those Avatar follow-ups form an uber-successful franchise like he and Fox are hoping it will, he might never leave Pandora…
