‘Chronicles’ showrunner thanks fans

Josh Friedman, the showrunner for the recently canceled U.S. television drama Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is thanking its fans for their support.

The sci-fi series, based on the iconic film franchise, ran for two seasons on Fox.

By now most of you have heard the news that 'T:SCC' is canceled, Friedman said in a blog posting Monday on the show's Web site.

I know a lot of you are angry about the cancellation and want to find a place to direct your anger and to that I say do yourself a favor and find a way to move past it, he added. Every network wants a big fat hit, especially one with a brand name behind it, and Fox was/is no different. They supported the show, they supported my vision of the show, and they gave it plenty of time to find an audience. And what an audience we found: passionate, intelligent, kind of nuts in a good way. My only complaint about the 'T:SCC' fans is that there aren't 10 million of them. But I prefer to be happy for the ones we had instead of lamenting the ones we didn't. ... I'd like to thank those of you who've supported us and fought for us and given up hours of your life to watch our show. At the end of the day, that's what it's about. The watching.
