Announced during the Television Critics Association press conferences, The Wrap has Cameron speaking about the new project:

When I was a kid, I basically read any book with a spaceship on the cover, and I saw 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY many, many times,” Cameron said. “The movie inspired me to become a filmmaker. I liked the special effects, but I really loved the ideas and the questions behind them: How will the world end? Will technology destroy us? What does it mean to be human?”

The new series debuts in 2018.
