Terminator Timeline

What’s on the Terminator Timeline?

The Terminator timeline is tricky to arrange, since it involves time travel, the result of which leads to alternate timelines. Terminator has also spawned a lot of comics and other tie-in media, most of which is not considered canonical, especially the comics that often crossed over with the likes of Robocop or other franchises.

So most tie-in media is not included on this timeline. However, there are a few novels that are worth including, as well as the Sarah Connor Chronicles that aired on television. All in all, we think this is the best order to experience a more complete story of the Terminator franchise.
