Edward Furlong will reprise his role as John Connor in the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate.

Director Tim Miller announced Furlong’s return to the franchise during the first panel in Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will also be returning. Hamilton portrayed Sarah Connor, John’s mother, in the first two films.

Other actors and actresses have portrayed John and Sarah Connor over the years.

Miller said the film will show Sarah Connor dealing with the consequences of her actions in Terminator 2 Judgement Day, where she destroyed Cyberdyne Systems and presumably every trace of Skynet and its army of Terminators.


The upcoming film is said to take place 27 years after Terminator 2: Judgement Day and will have an R-rating, because “fans kind of demanded it in a way.”

The trailer for the film has also been released, which shows Sarah Connor defeating a cyborg. Schwarzenegger is also seen in the trailer, with a gray beard.

There are also two other characters in the film, played by Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes.

Davis plays Grace, a soldier-assassin human-machine hybrid who was sent from the future to protect Dani, played by Reyes. Dani Ramos is a young woman who is targeted by a new advanced Terminator prototype.
