SG-1 Ends Run; Atlantis Back

SCI FI Channel confirmed that it will not renew its record-breaking original series Stargate SG-1 for another season, but will pick up its spinoff series Stargate Atlantis for a fourth year. SG-1 aired its 200th episode on Aug. 18, and the SF series is the longest-running SF show on American television.

SCI FI issued the following statement on Aug. 21: "SCI FI Channel is proud to be the network that brought Stargate SG-1 to its record-breaking 10th season. Ten seasons and 215 episodes is an astounding, Guinness World Record-setting accomplishment. Stargate is a worldwide phenomenon. Having achieved so much over the course of the past 10 years, SCI FI believes that the time is right to make this season their last on the channel. SCI FI is honored to have been part of the Stargate legacy for five years, and we look forward to continuing to explore the Stargate universe with our partners at MGM through a new season of Stargate Atlantis."

Stargate SG-1, developed for television by executive producers Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 feature film Stargate. SG-1, which originally starred Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge, began on Showtime, then moved to SCI FI after five seasons. The current cast includes Tapping, Shanks and Judge and newcomers Ben Browder, Claudia Black and Beau Bridges. It airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Maybe, maybe not.

Booted `Stargate SG-1' could live on Wed Aug 23, 4:42 PM ET

NEW YORK - The Sci Fi Channel has pulled the plug on "Stargate SG-1," but there still might be life ahead for the long-running series.

MGM, which produces the show, is hoping to dock it on another channel.

Not too many shows make it to the tenth season. That is a remarkable accomplishment. Look at Star Trek. The original show lasted a few seasons and now there's Star Trek spinoffs galore.

I can easily see Stargate evolving into many different spinoffs. I don't think it will stop with Atlantis.

The only other shows that went on for more than ten seasons were Gunsmoke, Hawaii Five-O, and The Simpsons.

Latest news this past week - SG1 will be making 2 movies next year. It will wrap up how the series ends. Unfortunately, that means we'll probably have to wait a year to see what happens after the series finale.

And, apparently, the movies may go straight to DVD. It will still have a bigger budget than the tv show, though....

Sci-Fi channel is cutting off their nose despite their face....bring in wrestling , ditch Stargate SG1. The friday night line up with the two Stargates and Battlestar was the best thing they had going for them....I dont much care for Doctor WHO...new or old.

I guess it did signal trouble when R.D.A. left the show, and they started bring over the cast of Farscape... I was just waiting for GiGi Edgley and the muppets to show up.(hmm wait the Asgard were muppets)

Kinda sad that it has come to this.

With the current wisdon of the Sci Fi channel.........hold on to your seat and stand by for this-

What do you expect from NBC. They aren't the brightest network out there.

nah, it's good timing, considering that the cheyenne mountain facility is being shuttered in real life.

'Gate Expectations: SG-1 OK'd for Two Films
Stargate SG-1 may be winding down its 10-year-run this spring, but here's some exciting news for its fans. MGM has granted a green light and enough money to produce two movies, most likely for DVD, executive producer Brad Wright tells TV Guide. The first flick will tie up most of the finale's loose threads "It's the climax of the Ori story line" and will be written-directed by exec producer Robert Cooper. The second film, penned by Wright, will involve time travel, and both projects should debut in the fall of 2007. Though no deals are signed, SG-1's stars are said to be "very eager" to continue. "They're not big-budget [films] by any definition, but for us it's pretty good," says Wright. "As we've proven over the years, just give us little more money and we can make pretty good television, or DVDs.

"There's a sense of an era for us ending," Wright continues, "but at the same time, we're all positive because of the prospect of continuing forward with movies and the introduction next year of Stargate Worlds, a massive multiplayer online game."

Hope they will be good and not end up being a 2 hour long episode instead of a movie.
