Netflix has cast Timothy Olyphant as the voice of The Terminator in the upcoming anime series Terminator Zero. This is great casting, and it will be fun to see how Olyphant plays the character.

The series is set in the same universe as James Cameron’s film franchise, but the Connor family is not part of the storyline. It will focus on all new characters.

Terminator Zero comes from Showrunner/Executive Producer/Writer Mattson Tomlin (Project Power, The Batman II), and he explains in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the series will have the same kind of sci-fi horror vibe as Cameron’s original movie.

Tomlin previously said: “There’s a completely valid version of the Terminator franchise where the Terminator is synonymous with Jason and Freddy, where he is this unrelenting serial killer. There’s a little bit of Friday the 13th in here. There’s a little bit of Michael Myers in here.”

The description of the series reads: “2022: A future war has raged for decades between the few human survivors and an endless army of machines. 1997: The AI known as Skynet gained self-awareness and began its war against humanity.

“Caught between the future and this past is a soldier sent back in time to change the fate of humanity. She arrives in 1997 to protect a scientist named Malcolm Lee who works to launch a new AI system designed to compete with Skynet’s impending attack on humanity.

“As Malcolm navigates the moral complexities of his creation, he is hunted by an unrelenting assassin from the future which forever alters the fate of his three children.”

The anime comes from Japanese animation studio Production IG (Ghost in the Shell). The first season will consist of eight-episodes and it will be unleashed on Netflix on August 29, 2024.
