TERRA NOVA: Season 2 Decision Breakdown


We have an update on FOX‘s difficult decision over the future of Terra Nova.

While it still looks likely that FOX will opt to renew Terra Nova for a second season, Deadline Hollywood has further outlined some of the factors involved in the network’s imminent decision, with the Winter Television Critics Association taking place this Sunday. Here’s a bulleted breakdown:

  • ┬áThe future of TN is sure to be a hot topic at Sunday’s TCA (as is the future of House and Fringe).
  • As we previously mentioned, the TN producers were hoping to find out the fate of the show before the end December. That decision was pushed back to 2012, suggesting it’s a really close run thing between the show getting the axe or coming back.
  • FOX has to make a decision soon as a second season has to go in production by April to be ready for Fall.
  • Three of FOX’s four new dramas this season are yet to premiere (Alcatraz, Touch, The Finder) and their drama pilot scripts are only just starting to come in, so they may have to make a decision somewhat blind.
  • Things may become clearer in the next few weeks when Alcatraz and The Finder premiere, with Touch previewing before its official March launch. Not to mention Fringe will have a run of returning episodes. All of which should help the network to gauge the situation, if they haven’t pulled the trigger by that time.

Deadline conclude that FOX will try to hold off til’ the last moment before announcing their decision, but say a TN pickup is still more likely than House. Seriable also expect FOX to hold out for as long as they can, but wouldn’t be surprised if they pull the trigger very soon. It should be an interesting few weeks, both on and off the seriable screen.
