Before Season 1 of Terra Nova was released, the Countdown to Terra Nova app revealed a teaser video, poster or faux news article every day until the premiere. The app was created by the Cargo Collective under the supervision of Anna McClure.[1]

The content was later deleted. The videos were not released on DVD.

Countdown App

The Countdown app was available on Facebook and the website assets.fox.com/shows/terranova/. The top of the widget had a counter that informed the viewer how many days:hours:minutes:seconds were left before the show's premiere. The top also had a few like buttons.

Starting from July 23[2], the app revealed a newscast or advertisement from 2149, until the show premiered on September 26, 2011. Among the countdown videos were psychologic evaluation videos with all members of the Shannon family, apart from Zoe.

Thumbnails of all content were listed in a gallery below a larger screen that showed the latest or selected element. The elements were grouped into the categories:

  • News: Year 2149
  • Discover Terra Nova
  • Government Alerts
  • The Shannon Family

There was also an "Enter The Lottery" button that linked to the Live Terra Nova website.
