Summer Glau as Cameron on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

UPDATE: It's Official, She'll Be Back! Fox confirms renewal of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for next season with a 13 episode order.

TV Guide's Michael Ausiello is reporting the "exclusive scoop" that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will be back. Ausiello offers up absolutely no details at all other than "multiple sources confirm to him exclusively" that it has been renewed.

This is no surprise, especially with Ausiello reporting much earlier that they were already staffing for the show and FOX's Kevin Reilly confirmed this in a discussion with the Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.

"We've already started staffing on ‘Sarah Connor.' Although it was an unusual season, it will end up finishing by far and away the strongest new drama of the season," Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter.

Plus the numbers were pretty good. So while we do not know yet:

  1. When it will be on
  2. How many epsisodes there will be Update: 13 episodes ordered.
  3. If Summer Glau's character "Cameron" got vaporized...we do now know:

She'll be back. Summer, Sarah, and Thomas Dekker too (and we imagine, Brian Austin Green as well). We always thought the numbers were good enough, especially in light of other new shows from FOX not performing as well. I'm looking forward to more details.

Note: Alert reader Raijin observes in the comments below that in Terminator lore, April 21st is "Judgment Day".  I doubt it's a coincidence that FOX passed (positive) judgment on that date!
