Linda Hamilton is joining "Terminator 6" with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The actress, who played Sarah Connor in the first movie released 25 years ago, will also be reuniting with her ex-husband, director James Cameron.

It was the director who confirmed Linda Hamilton's return in a private event, according to Deadline.

"It’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return," James Cameron said. "There are 50 and 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys, but there isn’t an example of that for women."

The first Sarah Connor

Linda Hamilton will reprise the role of Sarah Connor in "Terminator 6,’ which will still have its official title.

The actress also played a role in the 1991 movie "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."

In 2008, Fox adapted "Terminator" as a TV series, but it survived one season only. "Game of Thrones" actress Lena Headey played Sarah Connor in this small screen version.

In 2015, another star from "Game of Thrones" -- Emilia Clarke -- also assumed the character of Sarah Connor in the fifth film, "Terminator: Genisys."

Rebooting the franchise

Linda Hamilton's return to the franchise will also mark the reboot of a new "Terminator" trilogy. James Cameron is cooking up the narrative that will anchor the new films, which is why he won't be sitting in the director's chair this time around. Taking over as director for "Terminator 6" will be Tim Miller ("Deadpool").

James Cameron also said that he's in search of an 18-year old actress to carry the next installments.

Most of the characters in the planned film will be new, except for the ones that Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger will play.

Helping out James Cameron in the reboot are scribes and producers David Goyer ("The Dark Knight Trilogy"), Charles Eglee ("Dark Angel") and Josh Friedman ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles").

Clamor for Hamilton

Fans of “Terminator” have been asking for Linda Hamilton’s return for years, perhaps due to the unimpressive box office performance and delivery of the other films that did not feature the actress.

News of a potential “Terminator 6” started surfacing a few months back, much to the disappointment of fans who thought the franchise should rest. No one perhaps anticipated Linda Hamilton’s return.

James Cameron might have hinted about this when he criticized “Wonder Woman” back in August. He said that Gal Gadot’s character is still objectified despite the movie’s strong feminist messages.

He also said Wonder Woman is nothing like Sarah Connor because the latter was more relatable with her flaws as a troubled mom.

“She earned the respect of the audience through pure grit,” James Cameron said about Sarah Connor.
