“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” lives to fight a full season

Sarah Connor now has a little more time to fight the future. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles got picked up for a full season over the weekend. Lower ratings recently have caused fans to worry that the show might be canceled. But Fox showed some faith in Lena Headey, Summer Glau and company.

The show started off down some 2 million viewers since its first year, but the show has shown signs of human (not artificial) life recently, gaining more than a quarter-million viewers and bringing its viewership close to 6 million a week. That basically ties it with time-slot competition Chuck.

Fans of the show now get to breathe a sigh of relief and relax into the full season. And what a season it has been, with the addition of Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson as Catherine Weaver, the tech-company CEO and evil, liquid-metal terminator.

So, excited about the news? Excited about the new season? And, seriously, what’s with the pre-apocalyptic chic look the ladies have been wearing? Slate is apparently totally “in” at the end of the world.
