Steven Spielberg's Terra Nova Has Been Cancelled

The sci-fi/drama TV series Terra Nova has just been cancelled by Fox. Hit the jump to find out why.

Deadline reports that FOX's heavily dino-driven show, Terra Nova has been cancelled. After the end of the first season in December, many fans of the show were wondering when it would return (or if). Deadline earlier reported that the chances of the show returning were high.

According to Deadline, FOX tried many different ways to restore the show before ultimately deciding to cancel it. The main reason it was cancelled is because the show was very expensive, relying heavily on CGI and its large cast of people. Even though FOX will no longer be making episodes there is still a (small) chance that it could return, but with a different network. Deadline reports that the producers of Terra Nova, 20th Century Fox TV, are going to try to send the show to other networks.

What a shock. They had dinosaurs that wouldn't go down, even when shot at point blank range with multiple automatic weapons. Terminatorsaurs. lol.

Not surprising. It was promising at the beginning and got good again at the end but for the bulk of the series it just wandered around like a confused lost puppy looking for a plot to really latch on to. Long story short, it couldn't find it's legs fast enough.

I wouldn't mind them revisiting the show for a series of TV specials, if they can get the cast back. Where they left the plot hang actually made me interested in the story again.
