TVLine Items: Terminator Returns, ABC Family Plays Lying Game, and Other TV News to Know
Following its cult-followed — but short-lived — run on Fox from 2008-09, Syfy has picked up all 31 episodes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and plans to launch them Thursday, April 7 at 9/8c, EW.com reports.
No new episodes are in the works (sob), but the network will air not one, not two, but four hours of TSCC each Thursday.
Ready for more of today’s TV news? Well…
• Syfy also announced their spring premiere lineup, with a Top Chef alum’s new series leading the pack: Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen makes its debut Tuesday March 22, at 10/9c; Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files returns Wednesday, March 23 at 10/9c; Sanctuary is back Friday, April 15 at 10/9c; and Stargate Universe‘s final 10 episodes begin Monday March 7, at 10/9c.
• Your next guilty pleasure alert! ABC Family has officially picked up The Lying Game, a one-hour drama based on the novels by Sara Shepard — yep, the Pretty Little Liars author. Lying is sort of a much darker Parent Trap, and stars Alexandra Chando (As the World Turns), Blair Redford (90210) and Kirsten Prout (Kyle XY).
• Saturday night’s NBA All-Star Game delivered its highest ratings since 2003, which featured Michael Jordan’s final appearance. The TNT televised game delivered 9.1 million total viewers.
That’s it for today. Which TVLine Items have you talking?
