Fox has officially confirmed that they’ve renewed Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for a second season. The network has picked up 13 episodes of the series, Variety reports. The trade magazine confirmed early reports that the show was never really in danger, noting that Fox and Warner Bros. (who produces the series) had already started staffing for a second season of the series.
‘The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ averaged a solid 9.50 million viewers and a 3.9/9 rating/share among adults 18-49 through nine episodes.
“It was a very ambitious show, and I myself was wondering if they could take on this mythology on a weekly basis,” said Fox Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly, who credited exec producers Josh Friedman and John Wirth with making it work. “I’m excited to see them take another whack at it.”
“In a season where we saw plenty of shows come and go, even during the strike, with soft competition, this show found an audience,” he said. “There was a definite uptick toward the end.”
According to Reilly, “Sarah Connor” also benefited from heavy DVR usage.
