Fox terminates The Sarah Connor Chronicles

She won't be back

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Fox has announced that it's terminated The Sarah Connor Chronicles after two series, the Hollywood Reporter reports.

The Terminator spin-off, starring Brit thesp Lena Headey, had evidently failed to deliver audience bangs-per-buck. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly explained: "It was not an inexpensive show. We looked at ratings track where it had a consistent run. That trend line was not pointing in the right direction. We did a huge launch with that show. It was time to move on."

When pressed by TVGuide.com as to whether the cinematic release later this week of Terminator Salvation might make Fox reconsider, Reilly insisted The Sarah Connor Chronicles "has completed its run - and I think it had a nice little run". ®
