Scoop: Fox set to terminate 'Sarah Connor Chronicles'

Resist the urge to nuke the messenger, but multiple sources are telling me that Fox will not be renewing Terminator: The Summer Glau Sarah Connor Chronicles for a third season.

“It’s done,” maintains a source close to the show. “Everyone has pretty much known for a couple of weeks.” Adds a network insider: “Consider it canceled.”

The one bright spot? Despite horrific ratings, Fox isn’t ready to declare SCC dead and buried – at least not officially. “No decision has been made yet,” insists a network rep. “We will be announcing our fall schedule on May 18.”

Rough translation: It won’t be back.

Oh, I just thought of one other bright spot: At least the show went out on top creatively. Last Friday’s finale was an action-packed, closure-filled triumph. The only thing left unresolved is what Summer Glau will do for an encore. I’m thinking 24 should hire her as next season’s Big Bad.

What do you think Glau should do next? Post your career advice – and unofficial SCC eulogies – in the comments section below.
