article imageTerra Nova cancelled by Fox - scifi fans will be disappointed

By Anne Sewell     Mar 7, 2012 in Entertainment
Fox says that the highly inventive TV series, Terra Nova, will not continue for another season. No more dinosaurs will be seen.
According to CS Monitor, despite a highly inventive storyline and a very expensive set, Fox will not be renewing the series Terra Nova.
The prehistoric adventures of the Shannon family in Terra Nova are ending, as the network has announced that they will not be renewing the series for a second season.
Terra Nova star Jason O'Mara recently tweeted: "Bad news guys, Terra Nova has been cancelled by Fox." However, he is hoping that the series will be taken up by another television network, though no negotiations have been announced yet.
The series premiered in September 2011 and was considered an experiment by the network. Terra Nova attempted to bring the beauty of theatrical visual affects to audiences with amazing prehistoric sets, and with a pilot that apparently cost $14 million, Terra Nova premiered to 9.2 million viewers.
Regrettably by the end of season 1, only 7.2 million viewers were tuning in.
Despite the cancellation, Fox's president of entertainment, Kevin Reily revealed that Terra Nova is actually considered a success for everyone involved, with both the network and studio making money on the project.
Although financially successful, it is unlikely that another network will take up this $4 million per episode series.
So scifi fans are once again upset as yet another series falls by the wayside. Other recent cancelled scifi shows include The Event, V and Caprica.
