Over the past year we’ve been hearing about a new, sci-fi series from Steven Spielberg called “Terra Nova.” With the exception of the plot synopsis and a few casting briefs here and there we had no idea what to expect from the show. The production got off to a rocky start and no photos or trailers had been released — until now. The first images from the series have hit the net and you can check them out below…

As you can see, Jason O’Mara is in papa bear mode as he tries to protect his family from an impending threat. Out of all the shows coming out next season, this is the one that we have the most questions about. You don’t want to judge a book by its cover, but to be honest these photos look like they were taken from a Syfy original movie. What do you think?

Official Synopsis:

The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the tenth pilgrimage of settlers to TERRA NOVA, the first colony of humans in this second chance for civilization. JIM SHANNON (O’Mara), a devoted father with a checkered past, guides his family – wife ELISABETH and children JOSH and MADDY – through this new land of limitless beauty, mystery and terror. In addition to blue skies, rolling rivers and lush vegetation, TERRA NOVA offers new opportunities and fresh beginnings to its recent arrivals, but the Shannons have brought with them a famial secret that may threaten their citizenship in this utopia. These adventurers soon discover that this healthy, vibrant world is not as idyllic as it initially appears. The areas surrounding TERRA NOVA are filled with dangerous dinosaurs and other prehistoric threats, as well as external forces that may be intent on destroying this new world before it begins.
