With the fate of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles apparently cancelled (according to Entertainment Weekly, at least), one website has come up with a convincing Plan B allowing the show to live.
End Of Show suggests that, even though TSCC has been cancelled by Fox, the show may have a future as a straight-to-DVD movie series. Admit it, you didn't see that coming... but their thinking is sound:
Warner Bros have been trying to move into the area of DVD first features for many years. DVD features have always been a tricky area - Hollywood has an atmosphere where nobody likes to feel they are slipping down the spectum, and DVD premieres still have a stigma in the industry ("Direct to video"). However, many companies believe significant revenue exists in this area, with companies such as Fox and Disney moving in.
Warner Bros itself has established an arm called "Warner Premiere", who look purely at DVD projects. If Warners fail to find a network to continue the show into a third season, it seems fans should look towards Warner Premiere... Warner's tried to resurrect oldtime geek series Babylon 5 in DVD format and failed. End Of Show believes there's another more deserving franchise around waiting to be tapped. That franchise has killer robots in it.
Pointing out that the Terminator brand alone - never mind cliffhanger ending to season 2 - should guarantee an audience for any potential DVD continuation, we have to admit to being on board with this alternative, in case Fox passes. We'd still rather have season 3, though.
