Netflix abandons talks to revive ‘Terra Nova’
“Terra Nova” officially is extinct, at least with Netflix.
Just weeks after the company expressed interest in picking up the recently canceled Fox dinosaur drama, the streaming service has opted to pass on salvaging the series, the Hollywood Reporter has learned, as Netflix and “Terra Nova” studio 20th Television were unable to come to terms to revive the series.
Netflix’s name first surfaced early this month after Fox canceled the pricey drama from executive producer Steven Spielberg and 20th Television, but talks ultimately broke down.
Despite international appeal for the series, which starred Jason O’mara and Stephen Lang, Fox canceled “Terra Nova” in early March after spending an estimated $10 million to $20 million on its twicedelayed two-hour premiere, with 20th Television announcing it would shop the series elsewhere.
