The “Terminator: Dark Fate” panel at San Diego Comic-Con confirmed the film’s R-rating and the reprisal of Edward Furlong’s John Connor character. Select members of the cast and crew were on hand to discuss the upcoming Terminator installment with fans, and the event had a few surprises in store.

While the R-rating wasn’t too surprising, the audience seemed happy to hear that Furlong would be coming back to the franchise. Furlong made his big-screen debut with “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” back in 1991. The actor starred as young John Connor alongside Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film was a gigantic success, both financially and for Furlong, who quickly followed up the role with “Pet Sematary II” in 1992 with Anthony Edwards and Clancy Brown.

The movie is also bringing back Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger and features Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.

Paramount Pictures put together a featurette from Comic-Con earlier today, and fans can watch the video below. The studio released the video on social media, telling fans, “Take an inside look at the making of Terminator: Dark Fate.”

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on November 1st, opening against the crime-drama “Motherless Brooklyn” with Bruce Willis, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, Leslie Mann, Fisher Stevens, and Cherry Jones. Tim Miller directed the new Terminator installment for Paramount Pictures, with James Cameron and David Ellison serving as producers. David Goyer, Justin Rhodes, and Billy Ray wrote the screenplay for the movie.

Dana Goldberg and Don Granger served as executive producers on the project, along with Edward Cheng, Tim Miller, John J. Kelly, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn.
