Fox Announces Premiere Date For 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles'

Fox announced back in May that it was adding an offshoot of the 'Terminator' feature franchise, 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles', to its fall lineup.

Over the summer, we had our first look at the series with a short leaked trailer. But FOX said it would begin airing the show sometime in January, not in the fall as originally anticipated, when some of its other proven hits such as '24' and 'American Idol' return.

So fans have been patiently for an official premiere date and we finally have one. The show, which has now been renamed to 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles', will premiere on January 14, 2008 at 8 PM. This gives it a spot alongside proven hit '24' which can only be a positive. Since it's a mid-season series, it's being given a 13-episode run to prove itself.

The show is described as follows: "Set after the events in 'Terminator 2' Sarah Connor and her son John, trying to stay under-the-radar from the government as they plot to destroy the computer network Skynet in hopes of preventing Armageddon." For a much longer description and the trailer, click here.

Now a couple of other notes coming out of Fox. The network will be extending the upcoming seventh season of '24' into June. No, we won't get more episodes, rather you'll see a three-hour premiere instead of the four-hour/two-night premiere and no back-to-back episodes.

That move has also led to shifting 'Prison Break's return after its fall finale on December 17 to April so the two series can wrap their seasons on the same night.

Here's hoping '24' has upped its game for this season, or it'll be an excruciating wait to 'Prison Break's return.
