English Voice Cast Revealed For Terminator Zero Anime

T-minus two months until Judgment day hits Netflix. The Machines are spreading to anime for the first time with Terminator Zero, set to premiere at the end of August. The streamer released the identities of the starring roles earlier this week.

In addition we now know a bit more about the plot: the series takes place entirely in Japan, taking the focus away from people with the last name “Connor” or “Reese” for the first time. It’s 1997 and Tokyo resident Malcolm Lee is haunted by apocalyptic dreams. He figures the only hope for humanity’s future lies with KOKORO, the super-advanced AI system he’s secretly building.

But the viewing audience knows that’s the wrong decision. And so does Eiko, a time-traveler from a post-apocalyptic 2022, who has arrived to inform Malcolm he’s CAUSING the end of the world! The Machines don’t want the project stopped and send a Terminator to the 90s to shut Eiko up.

Netflix has released the full cast list for Terminator Zero. The biggest name on the list is Rosario Dawson, best known to audiences as the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano in various Disney+ Star Wars shows. She is the voice of KOKORO, but it’s technically not the first electronic being she’s given voice to. Not many people know this, but she was Emily in the video game Dishonored 2.

André Holland (Moonlight, The Knick) is the voice of Malcolm Lee. Sonoya Mizuno (House of the Dragon, Crazy Rich Asians) plays Eiko, and Timothy Olyphant, of Deadwood and Justified fame, voices the nameless Terminator (or is the name actually Zero?) Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, MASS) plays an old woman in the future called The Prophet, described as “the philosophical guide for the human resistance.”

Terminator Zero is a collaboration between Skydance and Production IG, with executive producer Mattson Tomlin running the show and Masashi Kudo (Bleach) directing. All eight episodes of the first season will debut on Netflix August 29.
