Terra Nova: Cancelled by Fox, Hoping for Life on New Network

at . Comments

Fox has pulled the plug on Terra Nova, following an opening season that was met by mixed reviews and middling ratings, along with one of the biggest budgets on television.

Star Jason O'Mara delivered the news via Twitter, offering a sliver of hope to fans by writing:

“Bad news guys, Terra Nova has been cancelled by Fox. We’re gonna try and get another network to do it. Stand by.”

On the Murderous Case

The prehistoric drama was not a complete bust, averaging just under 10 million viewers per week. But the figures also declined as the season progressed and the two-hour finale drew a series low.

Assuming this really is it for the ambitious program, chime in now: Will you miss Terra Nova?
