Here is some fantastic news for fans of the short lived series Terra Nova – the complete series is available on DVD as of today!
I really liked the show, and it was disappointed to hear it had been canceled. I felt they were really hitting a good stride, and it was building momentum. Terra Nova was a very ambitious piece, and quite a unique undertaking for television. The DVD set being released is a great chance to own the show, something of which has the potential to come a cult favourite.
The set will have a great selection of bonus features and some online features that will be worth checking out!

Synopsis: It is the year 2149, and humanity is in the final throes of extinction. Those fortunate enough to escape are allowed to travel back in time 85 million years to an outpost known as Terra Nova. For the Shannon family, it’s a chance to reunite and start over. But once there, they face giant, carnivorous dinosaurs, and mysterious forces conspire to destroy the entire experiment — and everyone involved in it!
The focus of the show was the Shannon family, led by Jason O’Mara as Jim Shannon, his wife Dr. Elisabeth Shannon (Shelley Con) and children Josh (Landon Liboiron), Maddy (Naomi Scott) and Zoe (Alana Mansour). They all have traveled back in time, to an outpost known as Terra Nova to start a new life, but it is not as simple as they first believed. Running Terra Nova is the larger than life Commander Taylor (played by Avatar’s Stephen Lang), who has to deal with dinosaurs outside the outpost and a strange group of rebels.
The Shannon family are a complex one, with father Jim being a former police officer and in the not so great future gets sent away for breaching population control. Once he arrives at Terra Nova with his family whom he reunites with there, finds things are very different and he accepts the role of being security for the outpost. Elisabeth becomes a new doctor at the outpost, trying to do her best for her family. Their children try to adjust but naturally get themselves into all sorts of trouble – and are a large focus of the show as well.
