The next chapter in the Terminator saga will be on Netflix, but it will be something completely different. The war between humans and machines will be seen in the form of an anime series, Variety reports.

This anime is produced in collaboration with Skydance (producer of the last two films in the series) and Production IG (Japanese anime studio behind Ghost in the Shell or Psycho-Pass). We don’t know anything about the story or the cast, but we do know the Showrunner, Mattson Tomlin, a screenwriter for Project Power, and one of The Batman’s screenwriters.

Netflix Vice President of Japan and Anime John Derderian says “this new series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before” For his part, Tomlin hopes his show will ” break conventions, subvert expectations and have guts .” “Anyone who knows my scripts knows that I believe in taking risks and going for the heart

The last film in the series, Terminator Dark Fate, had moderately positive reviews, but was a flop at the box office, despite reuniting Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. It is the first animation production of Terminator, but not the first series, since between 2008 and 2009 the two seasons of The Sarah Connor Chronicles were released, with Lena Headey.

Netflix is ​​boosting its anime division with movie or video game adaptations. The closest is Pacific Rim: No Man’s Land, which opens on March 4. In the future, there will be an adaptation of Cyberpunk 2077 and Splinter Cell, both in anime format, to which to add that of Castlevania or Blood of Zeus.
