The Terminator Universe is expanding at Netflix in an All-New Anime Series

Netflix and Skydance have announced a new anime series based on the globally successful Terminator franchise, the first animated TV adaptation of the franchise. The series is produced in partnership with Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, B: The Beginning) who Netflix has a Production Line Deal with since 2018.

Mattson Tomlin (Project Power, The Batman) will be Showrunner/Executive Producer. There is no word yet on when the anime series will be set in the Terminator timeline.

If you are going to carry on with the Terminator franchise I think an animated show is the best way to go and hopefully they will change things up a bit.

Mattson Tomlin sai “Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. I’m honoured that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts.”

John Derderian, Netflix, Vice President of Japan & Anime added “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.”

Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President and CEO of Production I.G. said “I asked my long-time friend and colleague Mamoru Oshii what he thought about the idea of turning Terminator into an animated series. His response was “Ishikawa, are you out of your mind?” At that instant, I was confident we should get onboard. As huge fans, our team at Production I.G is putting their heart and souls into creating this series. We hope fans will enjoy it!”
