Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator updates, season two DVD & Blu-ray out in September

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season Two DVDTerminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles season two will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 15 22. No word yet on deleted scenes (Beastwizard would be nice) and other bonus features, but the collection will have six discs and <- that’s what the box art will look like.

In related news, Josh Friedman is back among the living in the blogosphere and has a lengthy post up about the days leading up to the cancellation. You can check it out HERE.

The fan campaign isn’t over either. Earlier today, someone posted this on Warner Bros’ official Twitter page: “I hear ur proclamations of TSCC love – so I gotta know, when did u first fall under TSCC’s spell?” Bottom line, WB may not be as disinclined to shop the show around as they were only weeks ago, so if you have a Twitter account, consider leaving them a quick message. The show is also now being streamed on the WB site. You can revisit the first five episodes of season one HERE.

There’s also a bunch of bigger season one screencaps (season two coming this week) on the site:

1×04 Heavy Metal, page one
1×04 Heavy Metal, page two
1×05 Queen’s Gambit
1×08 Vick’s Chip, page one
1×08 Vick’s Chip, page two
1×09 What He Beheld

And there’s also some Life news:

Season two will be available on DVD a bit earlier than Terminator, on August 25. If you are not planning on getting it and either live in the U.S. or know how to use proxies, you can still check out both episodes with Garret on Hulu at these links: 2×12 Trapdoor, 2×21 One.

Terminator will not be returning on Fox

Fox revealed the fall/midseason schedule at the upfronts earlier today and Terminator is not on it. Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said:

[Sarah Connor] has completed its run. I think it had a nice little run. It was a good show. It was not an either or [with Dollhouse]. We did see it tailing off a bit [in the ratings]. It had a nice creative core, but, ultimately, we made the bet on Dollhouse, so that’s it for [Sarah Connor]… We make no apologies. We gave it a lot of support and some consistent scheduling. We tried and thought it was time to move on.

In somewhat better news, the show’s executive SF geeks, Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller will be feeding lines to Mr. Spock himself next season on Fringe. No word on what Josh Friedman is up to next or whether any of the cast will be joining another show full time.

Fox hasn’t made a decision to renew The Sarah Connor Chronicles yet and will not be making any announcements either way until May 18, when they announce their full schedule for the fall. The ratings are not looking good and the fate of the show will be decided in the coming weeks, so this would be the right time to let Fox know how much you enjoy it and why. You can send letters, cards and emails to these addresses:

There are several other ongoing fan campaigns out there at the moment.

Hadley at the official Terminator blog is encouraging fans to vote in the Save One Show poll at EOnline.com.

The admins at the Sarah Connor Society admins say this:

Fox is looking at ALL the numbers. They are looking at Nielsens, DVR, Live Plus DVR, HULU, and Fox Online. They also pay attention to sales on ITunes and Amazon. As far as I know Fox is not going to make any kind of decision on a S3 22 or 13 Episode renewal until the DVR numbers come in for Born to Run.

So what you can do (if you’re in the U.S. or use U.S. proxies) is watch T:SCC on Fox on Demand or Hulu, get episodes on iTunes and Amazon’s Video on Demand, and sign up for the season two DVDs on Amazon.

Fans at the Terminator Wiki have also launched a social media campaign so if you have an account on any major social media sites – Digg, Reddit, Mixx – you can submit and vote for any Terminator-related articles or reviews you come across. With Digg, it’s pretty easy to do a search of all the recent articles once or twice a day and vote for them on the site.

Finally, if you have a blog or a profile page on a social networking site, you can post the links to the video-on-demand sites and the fan campaign info to help spread the word.
