Terra Nova or Terranova means "new land" or "new earth" in Latin and Portuguese. Terra Nova is an American science fiction drama television series that airs on Fox on Monday nights. It premiered September 26, 2011 with a two-hour episode. It follows the Shannon family as they go 85 million years into the past to save humanity. The show begins in the year 2149, a time when all life on planet Earth is threatened with extinction due to dwindling worldwide air quality and overpopulation. It has become virtually impossible for humanity to survive, and almost no vegetation exists. At Hope Plaza, a massive ring shaped structure in Chicago, scientists discover a rift in space-time that allows people to travel 85 million years back in time to the late Cretaceous period of a prehistoric Earth, but in an alternative timeline (thus avoiding paradoxes caused by reverse-flow time travel), offering a chance to save humanity. The Shannon family (father Jim, his wife Elisabeth, and their three children Josh, Maddy, and Zoey) join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, becoming part of the first human colony on the other side of the temporal doorway. The Shannon Family starts a new life in Terra Nova while having to deal with carnivorous dinosaurs and the Sixers (a splinter faction that has been opposed to Terra Nova ever since arriving in prehistoric times during the sixth pilgrimage). Cast: Jason O'Mara as Jim Shannon, a police officer and devoted father with a complicated past. He is sent to jail after assaulting a fellow police officer when they come to take his youngest daughter away. After spending two years in prison, he is aided in escaping by his wife and successfully makes it into Terra Nova, where he is assigned to help with the plants. After saving the life of Nathaniel Taylor, he is brought back as one of Taylor's soldiers. Shelley Conn as Elisabeth Shannon, a trauma surgeon who is selected for Terra Nova. She is married to Jim.
