‘Terra Nova,’ Netflix talks stall; hope for Fox series gone?

Officially over?

For those of you who love “Terra Nova,” we have some rather sad news for you — it’s starting to look more and more like the series is going to be heading to the TV graveyard soon pending a last-second reprieve.

According to Deadline, talks seems to have stalled between producers for the dinosaur drama and Netflix about bringing the show over to the subscription service for a second season. Netflix has already revived “Arrested Development” for a “where are they now?” sort of series, and they are also in talks about acquiring ABC’s “The River” in the likely event that it is canceled — in other words, it’s certainly understandable why Netflix was interested since they are expanding their original programming slate.

Unfortunately, things simply didn’t work out for one reason or another. Is it possible that the budget played a big role here? We wouldn’t be surprised, since this is the reason why Fox decided to pull the plug here despite “Nova” pulling ratings that may have led to renewal under different circumstances.

So while it may be too early to write the official eulogy for the show, you may very well have it ready. This was a show that had such promise to be the sort of drama series that could have bridged the gap between cinema and film, and now it’s going to likely become a memory soon.

What’s your reaction to this nes?
