The Series 800 Terminator is a type of Terminator mass produced by Skynet. Individual Terminators within the series are often referred to as T-800s.
The T-800 was Skynet's first cybernetic organism, with living tissue over a hyperalloy endoskeleton. This made it Skynet's first successful Infiltrator unit, capable of infiltrating the Resistance.
The Series 800 Terminator was the first in a line of Series 8xx Terminators in various timelines, including the Series 850 and the Series 888 Terminators.
With more than 30 years in the filmmaking world behind her, writer and producer Gale Anne Hurd has been one of the creative forces behind some of the genre world's most beloved projects.

During our interview we of course spoke to Hurd in-depth about "The Walking Dead": what fans can expect going into Season Three, more on the new and returning characters that fans of the comic series should definitely look forward to and the lowdown on the animatronic zombies that KNB will be using during next season.
Hurd also reflected on the film that put her on the map -The Terminator- and gave us her thoughts on a potential Terminator 5 if indeed the project ever does move forward with a new director at the helm (Justin Lin exited the project to focus on the upcoming Fast & Furious sequels)... Read more...
A proposed Terminator 5 has been in development since Terminator Salvation was released in 2009, but has had to suffer through a variety of roadblocks, including bankruptcy by rights-holder Halcyon, then being purchased by hedge fund Pacificor. It looked like the franchise was back on track last year, when Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures purchased the Terminator rights with Arnold Schwarzenegger and director Justin Lin (Fast Five) attached for a fifth installment.
Lin's involvement became questionable last September when he reportedly couldn't make Ellison's aggressive production schedule due to his commitment to Fast Six. Seems that was also around the time that James Cameron, director of the first two Terminator movies, started secretly advising Schwarzenegger on another Terminator movie. At least, that's what Cameron admitted in a recent interview with MTV... Read more...
