Today during the SDCC panel for Terminator: Dark Fate, series creator and executive producer James Cameron let it be known that Edward Furlong is indeed set to reprise his role as John Connor, mankind’s savior in the war against the machines, in the upcoming film.
Furlong is returning alongside Terminator 2: Judgement Day co-star Linda Hamilton, who once again plays Sarah Connor, John’s mother. The reunion makes sense. The two will undoubtedly serve as the connecting threads between Cameron’s 1991 action classic and Dark Fate, which retcons all other sequels.
Deadpool‘s Tim Miller directs Terminator: Dark Fate which opens wide Nov. 1, 2019 and continues the stories of both John and Sarah Connor.
