Fox has pulled the plug on Terra Nova.
According to Deadline, Fox spent two weeks looking at possible scenarios for a second season but decided to give the series a pink slip instead. The network had to make a decision early due to the lead time needed to complete the special effects for each episode.
However, the show may not be quite dead yet. 20th Century Fox Television says it plans to shop the show to other networks.
But the huge price tag for the show may keep other networks from picking up the show.
With House exiting at season’s end, this leaves Fox with three other bubble drama to consider–Alcatraz, The Finder and Fringe. Fringe may get a fifth season to help round out the series run to 100 episodes, helping the show in syndication.
