‘Terra Nova’ Cancelled By Fox

Terra Nova Within Episode 11

The Fox network has cancelled Steven Spielberg’s series of Terra Nova, according to reports from Deadline. As many may have guessed after comments made by Fox’s President Kevin Reilly back at the TCA in January, the network has decided not to pick up the series for a second year after the show failed to pull in promising ratings.

“There is a show, which if we are to bring back, there’s an audience there. But creatively, the show was hunting (for its identity). If we had more holes in our network, we’d be thrilled to lock that right in”, Reilly shared.

The news comes after an extensive and expensive 16 month process of building the set, making it through a slew of writers, as well as a long wait for ‘Terra Nova’ to actually hit the airwaves. Now that the series, that only managed to pull in promising ratings with its two hour debut, didn’t pan out both money wise and among viewers, the drama show is currently being shopped around to other networks who may want to take on the production.

    Yes, I am terribly sad. I know that many people criticized this show, but I felt it was really starting to hit its stride by the end of the season, and will miss it.

    I loved the show. I think it’s a wrong move on their part. Hopefully, another network picks it up.

    the only networks with enough money to make a show like terra nova is abc,cbs and nbc, and I don’t think they would buy it, this is good bye to terra nova. I love the show, and I would definetly miss it

    Terra nova is one of the best shows I have seen sents stargate SG-1. If there is one network willing to pick up this show I hope it’s the sci-fi network. What a great show
