Terminator: The Anime Series will follow brand new characters and is created by Japanese animation studio Production IG, as per US-based media house Variety.
Here's the official synopsis: "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.

The Terminator franchise now consists of six films, a television series, novels, comic books, and video games, but this is the first animated production.
The series began with James Cameron's low-budget 1984 film The Terminator, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), a woman set to give birth to a leader who will save the human race from a robot uprising, as per Variety.
