Show Summary

FOX Broadcasting teamed with Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, Rene Echevarria and Aaron Kaplan to bring a new series, Terra Nova. In the year 2149, the planet Earth is a disaster, and most of the plant and animal life has become extinct. Scientists can't reverse the damage, but have found a way to travel back to prehistoric times to save the human race.

Among the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers in Terra Nova is the Shannon family. Jim Shannon, played by Jason O'Mara, is a loving father with secrets in his past. His wife, Elisabeth, is a trauma surgeon who has been recruited to join Terra Nova's medical team. Their three children join them on this journey: Josh is 17 and is not happy about leaving the life he knows. Maddy is 15 and is looking forward to a new life and a chance to make changes. Zoe is 5, and there is a secret involving her that could create problems for the Shannon family.

Commander Nathaniel Taylor warns the new arrivals of the dangers that surround them in Terra Nova. There are not only dinosaurs, but other settlers who have left the colony to start their own. The outcast colony is led by Mira, who left because she disagreed with Taylor as a leader. The Shannons soon discover not all the danger exists outside the walls of Terra Nova. Some of the members of their group disagree on how to save mankind and some may even be trying to destroy the new world before it can get started.

While FOX has announced the cancellation, Terra Nova is being shopped to other networks.

  • its really good

    i have learned my lesson. any show that are shown on FOX NBC ABC and others I DO NOT WATCH BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS GET CANCELLED WHICH PISS'S ME RIGHT OFF SOO I GIVE UP if its not from the uk then i wnt watch it SIMPLE
  • Its a great show.

    Terra Nova has a great storyline and has potential. The Actors/ Actresses do a great job in their part to make the emotions, feelings, and action come to one, and as playing the characters very well. I flip through shows that don't catch my attention. Terra Nova kept me hooked the first season. Many shows don't have as good as story line as Terra Nova has. If Fox Studios 're continues this show all the fans will definitely take their time to watch it and so will I. Just give Terra Nova a chance and I'm sure more viewers will come into play to make the show more popular. There isn't any other show I would want to continue watching, directors and film makers should rethink and make Terra Nova one of the top shows on Fox.moreless
  • Bring it back

    I recently watched season 1 and absolutely loved it! The acting was great, the plot was great. Finally there is a dinosaur series and it gets cancelled. Honestly I hate it when it gets cancelled after one season. Not even giving it a chance. I hope they decide to make another season. I'm hooked and so sad that there was only one season of it. I want more!
  • Best show ever!

    Terra Nova was a really nice show and Ive bought the DVD quickly. Great nature scenes and exited actions.

    I am so sad, that there is only one season, because I think, that Terra Nova was the best series ever!!! :) You can see it, that the production of this string was very expensive. I can recommend Terra Nova to everybody, because all of the parts in Terra Nova are exited.

    Please watch!!!! ;Dmoreless
  • Come back!

    Terra Nova was a brilliant pilot show and it is such a shame that it has not returned for another series. The acting was great as well as the plot/storylines in the first aired season. This was something slightly different to the many crime dramas that dominate the tv at the moment so was great to see something different for a change. Hope they manage to carry this on at some point.moreless
