Upset that Terra Nova got a pink slip?
You aren’t the only one.
Former Terra Nova star Jason O’Mara called Fox’s decision “premature” when asked about his former series at the Television Critics Assocation. O’Mara was there to promote his new series, Vegas, which airs on CBS this fall.
O’Mara said Fox took “an awful long time to make a premature decision” on the fate of the series, adding after the session that the series was just finding its feet creatively.
“We proved that with the season finale — there was a lot more story to tell,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “Creatively, we probably could have made some slightly better decisions halfway through but I think that’s par for the course for such an ambitious series.”
“I think there was a lack of clarity in terms of when the mythology needed to kick in,” O’Mara said. “The first few episodes were strangely stand-alone and there wasn’t much mythology. I think the mythology needed to be kicking in right from that second episode and onward. We needed to commit to the fact that it was going to be a Lost-like mythological series and not apologize for it.”
