Get More: Cancellations, News

Terra Nova CancelledDinosaurs are headed back onto TV’s endangered species list.

Fox has pulled the plug on its pricey prehistoric drama Terra Nova after one moderately rated season, TVLine has learned.

The show is currently being shopped around to other networks by 20th Century Fox Television.

“Bad news guys, Terra Nova has been cancelled by Fox,” leading man Jason O’Mara tweeted late Monday. “We’re gonna try and get another network to do it. Stand by.”

  • I am taking this news pretty hard as this show along with “Fringe” and “Fallling sky’s” where my best reasons for turning the tv on at all!. I am now 66 years old and i know what i like – i loved this show and waited impaiently for it’s return. All i can say is that just like the other networks Fox blew it big time for it’s audience yet again!

  • Please bring back Terra Nova!!! It is a great show!! Find a way to make it happen. Seems like regular tv is causing everyone to turn to cable and what shows they bring. Terra Nova is really reaching a great deal of people, great family stuff!!!

  • I am really tired of Fox giving us something we can sink our teeth into and then taking it away. Terra Nova was one of the first different series in a long time. God forbid it isn’t a typical cop show. You can keep House, and of course they left it on. Just what I need in my life, an addicted doctor who can’t make a decision on his own. Thank the Lord for supporting actors.

  • Terra Nova is great, it still had some many more stories to give us. I really hope it gets picked up by another network.

  • I keep waiting for someone to pick up Terra Nova! Why doesn’t Syfy do it??? I mean, they even have wrestling on the syfy channel for what reason we’ll never know. C’mon someone’s gotta pick up Terra Nova. It’s a great show!

  • Extremely disappointed in Fox. To rub salt in the wound they replace it with an implausible unexplained Alcatraz, and push it at you. Whatever else they come up with, I’m tuning out.

  • Fox is the MOST CRAPPY network there is!!!!!! I’m sure they will replace this with another one of their highly intelligent animated comic crap shows they like so much…. for the highly intelligent to watch…. Too bad, this was a good series, still hoping some other channel picks it up…

  • Why bring it back? It has more plot holes than the X-files. Good riddence.

  • Terra Nova was great and I’m sorry to hear fox cancelled. It was a favorite of ours and my 500 plus co-workers. As engineers we related to the plot “if it ever happened” we’d do the same.
    I hope another network picks it up. Frankly, we’re all tired of the million csi Miami and other similar shies. It was nice having something different and very entertaining on.
    Hope they bring back Terra Nova soon. Between that show cancelled and no more House… Fox has nothing interesting on besides repeats of Big Bang.

  • It’s interesting. Terra Nova is about giving people a second chance at life. Where is the second chance for this TV show? The first two episodes were really not the greatest, but after the director got familiar with the scene and cast they got drastically better. Alongside with Firefly(series), it’s too shameful to let a creative TV show die.

    Let’s all watch the 3-millionth broadcast of American Idol? We have only to blame ourselves for the mediocre-poor outcome from Terra Nova. It’s too bad that the masses would prefer to watch idiots acting out scenes in a reality show. Terra Nova has more reality than that even with dinosaurs. After all, the show plays on our emotions and what it means to be human and be given a second chance.

    I’m terrified at what has become of modern, idiotic television. But again, we can’t blame the producers or the executives at Fox. Just like the large corporation in Terra Nova, they don’t even care about breaking even, but to get wildly rich.

  • Okay so I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be watching FOX. They’ve officially cancelled every good show from last season with the exception if Touch.

  • It was heartbreaking when I found out that the show had been cancelled. It was one of best entertaining sci-fi shows that I’ve seen in quite sometime. I hope some other network picks it up and make you realize what a BIG mistake you guys made.
