Netflix Unveils Main Cast for the Terminator Zero Anime

The Terminator Zero anime is set to premiere exclusively on Netflix worldwide on August 29, 2024, exactly 27 years after the all-out war between humans and cyborgs depicted in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Ahead of the premiere, Netflix has announced the cast for the anime adaptation based on the classic Terminator film franchise.

The cast features several well-known Hollywood names who will bring both new and familiar characters to life in the upcoming sci-fi and action anime.

Here are the confirmed cast members and their characters in Terminator Zero:

  • Timothy Olyphant (Joel Hammond in Santa Clarita Diet) as The Terminator. Netflix’s version of The Terminator will remain faithful to the classic cyborg assassin. However, showrunner Mattson Tomlin claims that Olyphant’s portrayal of the character will be unlike anything the fans have seen before, adding, “It feels fresh and new and wholly its own thing.”
  • André Holland (Kevin in Moonlight) as Malcolm Lee, a genius computer programmer and father of three. He is haunted by prophetic nightmares of an apocalyptic future.
  • Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano in Ahsoka) as Kokoro, an advanced AI and Japan's answer to Skynet. If brought online, Kokoro will have the same power as Skynet.
  • Sonoya Mizuno (Mysaria in House of the Dragon) as Eiko, a resistance fighter from post-Judgement Day 2022. She is sent back in time to stop Malcolm from launching Kokoro.
  • Ann Dowd (Joan in Hereditary) as The Prophet, the philosophical guide for the human resistance.
