“The Terminator film franchise captured the attention of audiences around the world with its cutting-edge visual effects and innovative storytelling,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a gripping new series that continues that tradition.”

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles picks up where the feature film Terminator 2: Judgment Day concludes; Sarah Connor (Lena Headey, 300, The Brothers Grimm) has vanquished the Terminator sent from the future to kill her teenage son John (Thomas Dekker, Heroes, House) and believes they are finally free. The series reveals what happens when Sarah stops running and decides to fight against an evolving technological enemy bent on destroying the world.

Her son knows that he may be the future savior of mankind as the leader of the resistance, but he is not yet ready to take on his destiny and is content with his current life as an ordinary high school student.

John finds himself inextricably drawn to Cameron (Summer Glau, CSI, Cold Case), an enigmatic student at his high school, who soon proves to be much more than his confidante when she assumes the role of Sarah and John’s fearless protector. On their trail are not only threats from the future, but an intelligent and tough FBI agent, James Ellison (Richard T. Jones, Dirt, CSI: Miami), who soon becomes a powerful ally.

In the series premiere, Sunday, Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV (Saturday, January 19 at 9 p.m. ET on SPACE), Sarah struggles to keep her son John safe from an enemy Terminator from the future. She uproots their lives and takes him to live in a small town in New Mexico where he befriends Cameron who ultimately becomes his protector. Meanwhile, FBI Agent James Ellison continues his hunt for Sarah.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is executive-produced by Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) and John Wirth (Love Monkey). James Middleton (Basic Instinct 2) serves as consulting producer, while Toni Graphia (Battlestar Galactica) serves as co-executive producer and Natalie Chaidez (Heroes) serves as a consulting producer for the series. The pilot was directed by David Nutter (The Sopranos).

    “Only on CTV and SPACE”??? What about Fox, the original network broadcaster? CTV sucks, all they do is air US programming that we can already watch on the US network itself. Completely and utterly useless.
