Following Monday’s announcement that Fox had cancelled “Terra Nova” after one season comes word that production company 20th Century Fox Television is in early talks with Netflix for the series to continue on the streaming service.
“While discussions are merely preliminary, the move could make sense for Netflix as it continues its push into original scripted programming with fare including 20th Television’s Arrested Development, which the company resurrected in November,” says The Live Feed.
“Terra Nova” averaged 7.5 million total viewers and 2.6 million in the adults 18-49 demographic for its 11-episode first season. The finale drew a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49 and an audience of 7.2 million.
The show, from executive producers Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, René Echevarria and Brannon Braga, followed an ordinary family, the Shannons, on a journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as part of an experiment to save mankind. It starred Stephen Lang, Jason O’Mara, Shelley Conn, Landon Liboiron, Naomi Scott and Alana Mansour.
