‘The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ was officially canceled last season, and Summer Glau just scooted over to star on another Fox SciFi series, ‘Dollhouse.’ But Thomas Dekker says that the show just might have a second chance – in the form of a movie.
“They’ve spoken about doing a TV movie. Well, not a TV movie, but kind of like a direct-to-DVD movie,” he said to The TV Addict. “Obviously it’s difficult because the show is based on a movie and they just had one come out, so it’s kind of hard to make a movie with our show because everyone has kind of forgotten about us. But they’re hoping, at least when I spoke to [Producer] James Middleton that’s where they are with it.”
Did the cancellation of the show come as a shock to the actor? “Obviously we’d seen the ratings and we had an inkling about it,” he said. “But it was tricky, because the show was so popular overseas. In the end, it really came down to ‘Dollhouse’ or us and that was sort of what happened. I think we were too expensive and ‘Dollhouse’ was a lot cheaper.”
