Netflix tease Terminator anime with 45 second trailer

Written by Ross Locksley on 13 Nov 2023

Once again Netflix is raiding the archives to bring an old franchise into the anime fold, this time the peerless Terminator is being adapted. Netflix dropped a 45 second trailer to announce the project.

The video description confirms the anime will be produced by Skydance, Production I.G. & Mattson Tomlin. Masahi Kudo is set to direct. No release date as yet, but if any classic film could work as an anime, surely Terminator is top of the list. 

The eight part series will feature all new characters and a female soldier in the lead role.


A future war has raged for decades between the few human survivors and an endless army of machines. 1997: the AI known as Skynet gained self-awareness and began its war against humanity. Caught between the future and this past is a soldier sent back in time to change the fate of humanity. She arrives in 1997 to protect a scientist named Malcolm Lee who works to launch a new AI system designed to compete with Skynet’s impending attack on humanity. As Malcolm navigates the moral complexities of his creation, he is hunted by an unrelenting assassin from the future which forever alters the fate of his three children.
