SGU’s Cancellation Halts Other STARGATE Projects




With SyFy’s recent cancellation of Stargate:
Universe
, news has come out that this abrupt halt to the Stargate
franchise has also affected production on other Stargate
projects, namely the Stargate: Atlantis straight-to-DVD movie.



Executive producer Joseph
Mallozzi
confirmed this news in his blog:



“…the cancellation of SGU is very
bad news for those looking forward to an Atlantis movie.”



“I’m sorry to say but the
cancellation puts the brakes on whatever progress the ‘SGA’ movie had made in
the past month, shelving it indefinitely.”



Any plans for a new Stargate
series to follow SGU are also “off the table”:



“A new ‘Stargate
‘series isn’t even being considered. As for a totally new show — I can’t speak
for [creators] Brad [Wright] and Robert [Cooper], but I’d certainly love to set
up a new (non-’Stargate’-related) show somewhere down the line. But given
recent developments, I’m thinking that won’t be for quite a while.”



The remaining episodes of SGU’s
second season are to air sometime this spring.

: trembling lip: The Stargate
franchise cannot end like this! Many other Stargate fans who have
grown with SG-1, SG-A and SGU over these many years may pose this singular
question, “How can one imagine a world without Stargate?” I hope
that this is a mere pause in the Stargate legacy and not a dead
end.



The sci-fi television landscape
would not be the same without a Stargate series on air. No
Stargate would simply suck… like the icy vacuum of space.

I think their basic problem was that they were never able to match the cast ensemble chemistry of the original; Richard Dean.....Tapping...etc. ....that bunch.
