To date, there have been many movies made around the Terminator franchise. There has also been TV series made based on it, but if you’re a fan and you’re hoping for more, you’re in luck because Netflix has recently announced that they will be developing a new animated series also based on Terminator.
Not much is known about the plot of the series, but it will be created in partnership with Skydance who had previously produced the last two Terminator movies. It will also be created in partnership with Production I.G who Netflix had worked with in the past and who had also created other anime series.
The most terrifying killing machine in sci-fi history is back, just like it promised. Project Power’s Mattson Tomlin and legendary anime studio Production I.G are teaming up for an animated series set in the Terminator universe.

According to John Derderian, Netflix’s vice president of Japan and 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.”
Netflix has been quite aggressive in churning out animated series. Not too long ago, the company announced that they would be releasing an animated series based on Dota 2, and at one point in time, it was also reported that they were allegedly working with Nintendo on a Zelda series.
