Terra Nova Premiere Delayed Again

The Spielberg-produced dino show will now kick off in the Autumn instead of May

Terra Nova ’s TV premiere has been pushed back yet again.

Originally, the show was supposed to start airing in early 2011, but then in August last year Fox announced that the show wouldn’t be starting until autumn 2011, but with special preview episodes airing in May.

Now the preview episodes that were scheduled for May will now not happen and the show will just kick off into a full series in the autumn instead.

Terra Nova is one of the most ambitious television series ever produced,” explains Kevin Reilly, Fox Broadcasting’s President of Entertainment, “The cutting-edge visual effects used to create the world of Terra Nova , which is of massive scope and scale, require more time to be realised. This aspect of the series is essential, so we are pushing back the special early preview date to give the visual effects team the time needed for their ground-breaking work.”

“The world of Terra Nova is visually stunning on multiple levels, and effects play an enormous part,” adds executive producer René Echevarria. “Premiering in the fall will give us the proper time to create a world never before seen on television.”
