This will be the sixth film in the Terminator series, but for James Cameron, it will be a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), which will completely disregard the three films in which Cameron wasn't involved: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genisys (2015), of which it will come out four years after. Also, the film appears to be a reboot of a reboot. Terminator Genisys (2015) was a reboot of The Terminator (1984) and the first installment of a trilogy of new Terminator movies. This last movie ended up making $440.6 million at the Box Office and was given poor reviews by critics and instead, the two planned sequels, were abandoned by Paramount Pictures. Additionally, this movie will also be one that will come out 18 years after the latter, Judgment Day.

James Cameron considers the film as a direct sequel to his own films The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). He was not involved in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genisys (2015), so Terminator: Dark Fate disregards the events of these films, as well as the short-lived TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008). In 2017, Cameron commented that he has been generally supportive of those films due to his close friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but for various reasons, they did not work for him, so he decided to produce a true sequel himself. This means that Rise of the Machines, Salvation, Genysis and Sarah Connor Chronicles are being described as occurring in alternate timelines.
