A Terminator reboot is in the works but it will be without Linda Hamilton who says the franchise has been done to death and that she won’t be returning for another movie.

Back in May of 2023, James Cameron told the Dell Tech World crowd (see below) that he is writing a new Terminator movie but first wants to see how AI plays out before finishing the flick.

The Terminator movies deal with artificial intelligence becoming sentient and attacking mankind where they send a cyborg (Arnold Schwarzenegger) back in time to kill Hamilton’s character, Sarah Connor, so she doesn’t give birth to the leader of the resistance, John Connor.

“I’m done”

While promoting the upcoming release of Season 3 of the Resident Alien series, Linda Hamilton tackled the idea of another Terminator movie. She starred in the first two films by Cameron and returned in Dark Fate which was a massive bomb at the box office and misfire with fans.

“I’m done. I’m done. I have nothing more to say. The story’s been told, and it’s been done to death,” she told Business Insider.

Hamilton added: “Why anybody would relaunch it is a mystery to me. But I know our Hollywood world is built on relaunches right now.”

Linda Hamilton also stars in the final season of Netflix’s Stranger Things which gets released sometime in 2025.

T1 and T2 are really good, and I even liked Terminator: Salvation a lot, but the other films are a hard pass, with the most recent movies, Genisys and Dark Fate, particularly bad.

Speaking of being done to death Netflix also has the upcoming Terminator Anime from The Batman writer Mattson Tomlin coming out this year which sounds exactly like the first movie except with a female soldier coming back in time. in a new tab)
