TERMINATOR Franchise Heading To Netflix As An Anime Series From THE BATMAN Writer Mattson Tomlin

Exciting news for fans of the Terminator franchise today as it's been revealed that Netflix has teamed with Mattson Tomlin (The Batman) for a new anime series set in that world. Read on for details...

Terminator: Dark Fate was actually pretty damn good, but the movie underperformed at the box office, and once again left the franchise in limbo. However, Skydance Media is set to take another crack at it, this time with an anime series that's making its way to Netflix from Mattson Tomlin.

He co-wrote The Batman and also penned Project Power for the streaming service. On this Terminator project, he'll be serving as showrunner and executive producer. 

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

"Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created–and has only grown more relevant to our world over time," Netflix Vice President of Japan and Anime added. "The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans."

No plot details have been revealed, but this is the latest anime based on a huge franchise from Netflix as the streamer looks to cash in on the popularity (and cost-effectiveness) of that genre.
