Netflix is gearing up for a new animated Terminator web series, and it shows that the streaming giant is looking forward to boosting up its anime game.
Just recently, Netflix announced that it’s releasing DOTA 2 video game-based Anime Series in March and now this. It seems like the streaming giant has vowed to capture the attention of the anime fan base. Anime shows like Castlevania and Dragon’s Dogma have been very successful for Netflix, but this Terminator project will be humongous.
Not only will it be a treat for the Anime fans, but the fans of the original franchise will also be looking forward to it. Netflix has taken Production I.G onboard, one of the most popular Japanese Anime production enterprises, onboard for this web series.
The news of this Terminator Anime web series was announced through a tweet by NX:
The most terrifying killing machine in sci-fi history is back, just like it promised. Project Power’s Mattson Tomlin and legendary anime studio Production I.G are teaming up for an animated series set in the Terminator universe.

The showrunner and executive producer of the series will be Mattson Tomlin. He has recently worked on Netflix projects like “Project Power” and the screenplay for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film “The Batman.”
Mattson Tomlin stated,
The Terminator franchise has been quite successful and popular all around the world. To date, the franchise has had 6 installments; the last of them was “Terminator: Genisys.” This Anime web series by Netflix will be the first animated adaption for the franchise.
