Now that season two of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is filming and confirmed for a September 8th return to television, Fox has started planning to roll out the red carpet for one of last season’s few successful new shows. Their plan is to get anyone who might have missed it the first time around, by rebooting everything.
In a press release issued today, Fox Television announced that they’ll be re-airing all of Sarah Connor season 1 in the month leading up to the premiere of season 2. The replay of the show kicks off Sunday, August 10th. Here’s their full announcement:
Take back the first season of TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (T:SCC) this August on FOX. Beginning Sunday, Aug. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), encore episodes of the entire first season of T:SCC will air Sunday through Wednesday from 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT. The action-packed season finale cliff-hanger that left Cameron’s fate unknown will air Sunday, Aug. 24 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
The Season One reboot kicks off the countdown to the Season Two premiere Monday, Sept. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES reveals what happens when Sarah (Lena Headey) stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her life, and perhaps the world. Her son, 16-year-old John Connor (Thomas Dekker), is only now taking steps towards embracing his destiny as the future savior of mankind. John finds himself caught between his fearless protector, the sexy but sweet cyborg CAMERON (Summer Glau), and his uncle DEREK REESE (Brian Austin Green) who refuses to accept Cameron as an ally. Former FBI agent JAMES ELLISON (Richard T. Jones) has been transformed into a believer. Accepting Sarah’s reality that “no one is ever safe,” he’s now bent on figuring out his role in this ever-evolving fate.
