Sarah Connor Chronicles Returning As Direct-To-DVD Film?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronciles has joined many a beloved genre property in the halls of TV Sci-Fi Valhalla, but could it return in some other form? According to and ex-John Connor Thomas Dekker, the show might return as a direct-to-DVD movie following up to the show’s cliffhanger finale.

Granted, rumors of alternate-medium resurrections for canceled genre shows are like human skulls after Judgment Day – you can’t take a step without tripping over one. Then again, it’s not entirely unprecedented, what with the BSG folks filling the waiting time before Caprica with the upcoming direct-to-DVD Battlestar Galactica: The Plan. And I have it on good authority that both Buffy and Angel are living out fulfilling lives in two-dimensions on the comic-book page. But for every post-TV success story there’s a rumored Carnivale comic book some of us have been waiting on for years.

What do you think? Does Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles deserve a second chance on DVD? Or, after the series and this year’s Terminator Salvation, does the franchise need a nice, long hibernation? Either way, if Dekker’s wishful thinking proves reliable, I’m betting there are some die-hard Sarah Connor fans out there who absolutely will not stop – ever – until you buy it.
