Hard to say if another network would be interested in picking them up. It's an expensive show to produce and ratings were never a blockbuster. I'm guessing that ABC would be most likely but don't bet on it.... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I read about this last night. Not too surprised. Big price tag and a nominal audience. It was an ok show but I didn't get too attached.

I won't be holding my breath...still it would be interesting to see another station take it and maybe tighten up and make it more real. That was my problem..I couldn't escape into the show because it just wasn't believeable enough. Too bad Tamra *Layla* is off grid at present. I know she' upset. It was her favorite show. Ah well, another one bites the dust...

All great ideas were crazy before they were brilliant. Alexander Bell thought he could talk over copper wires, and even worse, Marconi thought he could send messages through thin air! When David Sarnoff wanted to launch the first radio network (now NBC), one investor ridiculed him by asking, "Who would pay to send a message to no one in particular?" Jules Verne thought people might one day travel under the ocean or, even more ridiculous, fly in outer space. How crazy was that!? ~~From Success May Require Weirdness

The news is not good.

No Netflix revival for 'Terra Nova'
Sources say 20th TV, Netcaster could not come to terms on new eps
By Cynthia Littleton
Looks like Netflix won't be traveling back in time with "Terra Nova" any time soon.

After serious discussions about the possibility of ordering new episodes of the drama canceled by Fox earlier this month, it's understood that 20th Century Fox TV and the Netcaster could not come to terms on a deal for the show.

The prospect of the show moving to Netflix was always a long shot, given the elaborate production and vfx demands of the dino-drama, which lensed in Oz.

Insiders confirmed that 20th TV is ready to call it a wrap for "Terra Nova," which launched with major fanfare last fall. The series had a strong pedigree, with Peter Chernin and Steven Spielberg among its exec producers, but never had enough traction with viewers to secure a renewal for Fox, given its high pricetag.

But who knows -- "Terra Nova's" time may yet come. Of all the major TV studios, 20th has the best track record of finding second lives for its shows, having pulled it off with "Family Guy," "Futurama" and most recently in a path-breaking pact with Netflix for new segs of "Arrested Development."

I don't understand how it could have been transferred to Netflix anyway, but it seems that getting another network to pick it up is the only hope, but I suspect we have seen the last of it.

Netflix is getting into the business of producing some original content for viewers to rent as well as movies and series already aired.
