How to Watch the Terminator Movies in Order?

The Terminator franchise has been around for quite some time and always managed to impress viewers. With the first few movies directed by James Cameron, the titles were bound to be a success. Let’s see how we can watch the Terminator movies in order. 

Nowadays, the franchise features the sci-fi movies we all know and love, comics, novels, and lots of media. It’s a franchise that has generated billions over the decades, and Terminator is a pop culture phenomenon with phrases like “I’ll be back” said in Swartzeneger’s voice becoming part of everyday speech. 

Watching the Terminator movies can be done in a couple of ways – first in chronological order, and then in the order of release, especially as newer titles go further back in history. 

Who Plays in the Terminator Movies?

The list of actors that plays in the Terminator movies has some pretty big names in it. We have Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Patrick, Linda Hamilton, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Lance Henriksen, Christian Bale, Claire Danes, Bryce Dallas Howard, Helena Bonham Carter, J.K. Simmons, and more.

It’s also slightly funny due to the rivalry between their characters in Game of Thrones, but both Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey have played Sarah Connor, one in Terminator Genisys and the other in Sarah Connor Chronicles series. 

How to Watch Terminator Movies in Chronological Order

Following the Terminator movies in chronological order will help you get a more streamlined look at the history of events in this world. 

  • Terminator: Genisys (2015)
  • The Terminator (1984)
  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008 – 2009) – TV show
  • Terminator: Salvation (2009)
  • Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Watching The Sarah Connor Chronicles is optional at this point, but it’s a nice way to wrap up the whole series, telling you more about this important character. 

How to Watch Terminator Movies by Release Date
