There was hope for Terra Nova fans, all three of them (zing!), that Netflix was going to pick up the series for season two. But today The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that talks with Netflix have ended, and the online video streaming service won’t be picking up the show, once again leaving it limbo.
Netflix established a trend of picking up fan favorite shows cast off by Fox when they acquired Arrested Development late last year. When Fox announced that it wasn’t renewing the dinosaur/time travel/family drama last month, negotiations with Netflix began. Presumably they were trying to navigate the minefield that is Terra Nova’s huge budget to no success.
Regardless of the setback, apparently the showrunners – including Brannon Braga, the genius behind Start Trek: Voyager, Enterprise and Threshold - are still trying to find a new venue for the show. In the meantime, several cast members, including Christine Adams, Allison Miller and Jason O’Mara, have signed up for fall pilots, which will take second position to Terra Nova if, hope against hope (for some), it gets picked up somewhere.
But I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.
