Terra Nova Locks Down Stars
as Fox Mulls Second Season
With Monday’s status quo-changing season finale scoring solid, but far from spectacular ratings — a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.2 million viewers — a question mark hangs over the future of Fox’s prehistoric drama Terra Nova.
While there’s been no announcement about Season 2, it’s thought a decision must be made by late January to start the wheels turning on the elaborate production. Still, we may be able to divine the show’s fate in the move to re-sign stars Jason O’Mara and Stephen Lang, whose options were set to expire Dec. 31.
According to Deadline, the network and 20th Century Fox TV, which produces Terra Nova, are also searching for “high-level writers” to join executive producers Brannon Braga and Rene Echevarria in an effort to “elevate the show.”
While neither of those actions is a conclusive indication that Terra Nova will head back into production in April, the odds of a second season are looking pretty good.
