FOX Cancels TERRA NOVA!

Fox announced late last night that there will be no second season of Terra Nova! It’s safe to assume the cast is already looking to book future projects. (There is no official press release at this time.) This seems to be the growing trend for Fox this year–keeping crap, ending good shows. House won’t be coming back but Alcatraz is doing okay (so far). This gives Alcatraz a fighting chance for a second season. We can hope that Bones will stay, but Touch and The Finder don’t look too healthy either.

Even though Terra Nova may have been canceled by Fox, 20th Century Television is shopping the market to bring Terra Nova to another network. The network originally had until December 31 to decide on a second season but picked up the options on the actors’ contracts to extend their time. They couldn’t wait any longer to make a decision because production needed to begin this month to complete a planned 22-episode second season.

What do you think? Should Terra Nova be saved? Comment if you like. More info to come as it becomes available.

Visit LiveTerraNova.com to Apply for Upcoming Eleventh Pilgrimage to TERRA NOVA

Just like those who traveled previously to Terra Nova, fans can apply now to be a part of the Eleventh Pilgrimage to TERRA NOVA, the next voyage of the extraordinary global effort to save the human race. The Eleventh Pilgrimage lottery launches today at liveterranova.com, a social-enabled website where fans can test their qualifications and enter the lottery for the next trip to Terra Nova.

Fans can join the experience by logging in with their Facebook ID and then submitting to a “retinal scan” sequence. Once the participant’s identity is verified, he/she will be asked to select six Facebook friends as potential team members for the next pilgrimage. Ambitious applicants will begin with an individual psychological evaluation where they will be tested on mental and emotional acumen that generate results instantly. Because “a family is four,” three Facebook friends will be eliminated after this first exercise. Subsequent weekly assessments, beginning September 5, will test endurance, recall and dexterity, each of which could result in the elimination of an additional friend from the lottery. Additionally, users can check the site regularly for updates, including news reports on the dire conditions of 2149.

In addition, the “Journey to TERRA NOVA” interactive fan experience is currently on the road traveling to 20 markets around the U.S. this summer and early fall. This branded, solar-powered bus features an interactive video green screen, where fans can digitally insert themselves into a scene from the series and then share it with friends via social media outlets by visiting www.journeytoterranova.com.
