April 16, 2008 - While we'll likely have to wait for FOX's Upfront in May to get an official announcement, it looks increasingly likely that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will be back for a second season.
In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly is asked about the expectations that Terminator and fellow recent FOX series Back to You will be renewed. Reilly replies "They're really the lead candidates at this point. We've already started staffing on Sarah Connor. Although it was an unusual season, it will end up finishing by far and away the strongest new drama of the season."
Reilly mentioning that they are staffing for Sarah Connor follows on TV Guide's Michael Ausiello recent report that directors were being hired for the first three episodes of Season 2. Obviously a network is not going to staff for a season they don't expect to order, so Terminator's renewal seems to be a certainty.
Can you believe it? A well-received FOX genre series is going to make it to a second season!
