Sci Fi Channel orders more SG-1, Atlantis

Sci Fi Channel has ordered new seasons of the original series Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. Production on 20 new episodes each will begin early next year in anticipation of premiering next summer. Heading in to its 10th season, SG-1 is now the longest-running sci-fi drama ever made for US television; Atlantis is heading in to its third season.

The Stargate series are based on the 1994 Roland Emmerich movie Stargate, which starred Kurt Russell and James Spader as a heroic army colonel and scientist, respectively. Along with a team of soldiers, they jump through a mysterious "gateway" that transports them across the galaxy to a place that looks a like Egypt. Upon arriving at this "space Egypt," they thwart an evil alien (Jay Davison) who is attempting to dominate the galaxy using the Stargate.

(note)from my point of view:
Super_Sharky i totally agree with you, Stargate Atlantis is ok, but it's too much "over-tuned" for my taste, and oh, RDA, was a very talented actor, without him (and with that crappy story-line of season 10) SG-1 was just a joke

and one more thing

Claudia Black doesn't even fit in a Sci-Fi series like this, well maybe series like Andromeda, but definitely not SG-1

best regards

re: n5-kopele: I don't normally post on here but i couldn't actually believe what you posted! Ask yourself this and be honest, Would sg1 really have made it as far as it has without Richard Dean Anderson? and 2: Have you not noticed how hard they seem to be struggling with a decent strong story line? Atlantis is at its best now and has taken over SG1 easily by being the better show now. I think you need to re-watch everything again and think about what you posted!

I love the new SG-1 much better! It's way more interesting without Richard Dean Anderson and with Ben Browder and Claudia Black! The Ori are much more exciting than the Goa'ulds (although I'd still like to see more Goa'ulds and Ba'al finally dead, he irritates me!). Atlantis is also a great show and was much better than SG-1 for a while, but now with the Ori SG-1 has the leadership again! I also love the mixed episodes, when the two casts meet and perform together :) Claudia Black is just great, she brings the humor and the erotic touch the show lacked before! She didn't act so well even on FarScape. Ben Browder is a good replacement to Anderson, looks better and suits better to the character (They both behave in a very similar way if you haven't noticed). With the new enemy SG-1 is far from over.

The only thing I don't like about the new formats is that each season has 20 eps instead of 22! I want more!

Great show and I like Ben Broder very much from Farscape lets hope he does as well on Stargate. The shows I've seen so far have been good.

Ben Browder just doesn't measure up to RDA in my eyes and the show is losing it's hold as the number one scifi show on American television. I'm glad it's still running because it is my favorite show but I believe it was better in it's earlier seasons. The show needs more action, like light shows and huge invasions instead of all these episodes that have the team on earth the whole time building on the plot for 3 episodes at a time or whatever. All in all the show is awesome but Atlantis is take the upper hand on Sg-1 and I don't think Sg-1 will last for more than 2 more seasons :[

Most of the good episodes of SG-1 involved Claudia Black. She should definetly be a regular. She brings great charisma to the series and her chemstry with Micheal Shanks is a rarity among television, let along sci-fi. Those two make it worth watching.

I would like to say that I love Stargate. I do miss O'neil and Hammond but the show is terrific. I was a late bloomer and did not start from the begininng, but thanks to the Sci-Fi channel I have been able to catch up and understand everything fully. All I got to say is keep on making them because I love that show.

Im very glad that there are going to be more episodes of BOTH stargate shows. Stargate Atlnatis is my favorite show and I hope that there are as many seasons of that as there are of SG-1.

I can only say that the Stargate Series will always intrigue me. So as they keep making them, I will watch. I have every one to date. I do have to say though some of the best humor on the show left when Richard Anderson did, bbut Ben Browder brings his own comic releif to replace it. It may also be that I was just so used to the previous humor that now I will just have to adjust to the new. It is just a fact that times change. I know things will only get better. Every show is original by my standerds. Keep up the good work!!!!!!

I can't wait to see how much further into the Arthurian mythology they can delve. That and what is to come from Baal still being alive.

Ben Browder and Claudia Black really brought some energy back into this, one of my favorite shows. I can't believe we're only getting 20 episodes next year. The Stargate Series both rock!

Great to hear that the two series have been renewed for a further season.

The introduction of Ben Browder has brought a new life to the series with further possibilites for expansion on such a great series.

Atlantis also continues with such great strength I hope that they continue for many years to come.

The show made it this far because of it's combination of humor, adventure and character development.

Add to that the mythological feeling that the Stargate opens up inside the viewers open mind, and you have a succesful series.

Although the show seems to be loosing it's strength in it's 9th season.
