The Terminator anime series in the works at Netflix

This will be the first Terminator project since 2019's Dark Fate.

Netflix has partnered with production studio Skydance Media to develop a new Terminator anime series.

Matt Tomlin, who previously created the original film Project Power for the streaming giant and co-wrote The Batman with its director Matt Reeves, will serve as showrunner. 

“Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart,” said Tomlin in a statement.

“I’m honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts.”

It’s not currently clear which period from the franchise’s timeline the show will be set in or which characters, either returning or brand new, it will focus on. 

This untitled anime will be the very first animated feature in the franchise which began with the incredibly influential original Terminator in 1984.

The most recent entry is 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate which serves as a director sequel to Terminator 2 and is set 25 years later. 

Although most critics and fans deemed it an improvement over the previous instalments, 2009's Salvation and 2015's Genysis, it was a box office bomb and halted the immediate plans for further instalments. 

Terminator: Dark Fate is available to stream on NOW TV
