A 'Terminator' Anime Series is Coming to Netflix

Variety magazine reports that Netflix has ordered Terminator anime series:

“‘Terminator’ is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created – and has only grown more relevant to our world over time,” said John Derderian, Netflix’s vice president of Japan and anime. “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.”

Mattson Tomlin will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series. Tomlin most recently wrote the Netflix original film “Project Power” and worked on the screenplay for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film “The Batman…”

“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.”


The ‘Terminator’ is coming in the form of an anime series. Netflix is currently working on a big project. It will be the first animated series in the franchise’s history.
