Fox gives full order to ‘Sarah Connor’

Network extends season despite low ratings

“Terminator” is far from being terminated.

Fox has just given a full-season order to “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Cast and crew were informed of the decision late Friday.

Back-nine order was far from certain; show has been struggling in its Monday night timeslot. But “Sarah Connor” has developed a fan base and some positive critical attention along the way.

“Sarah Connor” was preempted last week due to baseball playoff coverage, but in its last airing, on Oct. 6, averaged a 2.3 rating and 6 share among adults 18-49, which was up slightly from the prior week.

Warner Bros. TV is behind “Sarah Connor,” which stars Lena Headey in the title role, as well as Thomas Dekker, Summer Glau, Brian Austin Green, Richard T. Jones, Garret Dillahunt, Leven Rambin and Shirley Manson.

Josh Friedman, John Wirth, James Middleton, Mario Kassar, Andrew Vajna and Joel Michaels exec produce.
