As we all know, Steven Spielberg’s failed time travel/dinosaur adventure series Terra Nova has been cancelled – why can Spielberg not get TV right when he has had so many great movies? – but it now looks like there may be hope for it yet.
Netflix, yes the guys who provide movie/tv rentals, is apparently in talks to resurrect the show much like they did with Arrested Development. The idea is that Terra Nova would screen exclusively through Netflix.
Now we know series get second chances – Family Guy, Chuck, the list goes on – but we’re kinda wondering why they haven’t taken on Firefly! Sorry, the Browncoat in me got all carried away for a second there.
Deadline are reporting that Netflix and 20th Cebtury Fox are in negotiations about the show’s future, although it’s very, very early days at the minute. Our thought would be that Terra Nova would be a very expensive series to produce and we wonder if Netflix could handle it… either way, it’ll be nteresting to see if anything comes of this and if so, will it offer a gleam of hope for other cancelled shows we love?
