Arnold may not be back, but the Terminator will be back not only the big screen with the upcoming installment (scheduled for a summer 2015 release), but on the small screen, as well.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are in the process of developing a television series based on the franchise with Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller as writers and executive producers.

The potential series will be set during a pivotal moment during director James Cameron's 1984 blockbuster that will also make way for the reboot trilogy.

The Terminator franchise made Arnold Schwarzenegger into an action icon as the titular cyborg, whose purpose went from killing Sarah Conner to prevent the birth of her son John to protecting him in ensuring his destiny as humanity's champion in the futuristic war against the machines.

The franchise spawned four movies and FOX's short-lived but cult fan favorite Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-09) with Game of Thrones' Lena Headey, Thomas Dekker, and Summer Glau as Cameron, the female Terminator sent back in time to protect the Connors.
