Network wraps up Stargate: SG-1, the longest running sci-fi show in US TV history.
Aug 22, 2006
Sci-Fi closing the Stargate

When one door closes, a window opens. When one gate closes, then what?

Sci-Fi channel has pulled the plug on more seasons of Stargate: SG-1, which at 10 years is the longest-running science-fiction series ever on US TV. The network ordered another season--the fourth--of the show's sister series Stargate: Atlantis.

Stargate: SG-1, which aired its 200th episode on Friday, premiered on cable network Showtime in 1997. It ran for five years before switching to the Sci-Fi Channel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's producers never liked the fact that Showtime demanded full frontal nudity be worked into the episodes.

The Stargate series are based on the 1994 film Stargate, which told of the discovery by scientists of a dimensional vortex. Kurt Russell starred as the leader of a team of soldiers and scientists who step into the stargate and experience ...

Stargate reopens new Universe

All is right with the world--actually, universe--again! The whole fabric of space and time as it relates to science-fiction television was momentarily ripped asunder yesterday, when the Sci Fi Channel dropped some bad news for Stargate fans: at the conclusion of the currently airing fifth season, the network was retiring Stargate Atlantis.

Thankfully, the thought of television without a Stargate-branded series only had to last one day. This morning, Sci Fi sent out a blast that was a blessing to Stargaters everywhere--a new Stargate series is in the works.

Stargate Universe will take over the reins of the franchise sometime next summer, says the network. The idea was initially pitched last year, but was forced to take a backseat due to other Stargate projects as well as complications from the writers' strike.

The series will be in good hands; Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, the duo that created ...

Robert Carlyle headlining Stargate Universe

When Stargate fans heard that Stargate Atlantis was being shot out into space, never to return again, they pretty much freaked out. The Stargate franchise has been on television since 1997, and was in danger of fizzling out with the end of Stargate Atlantis at the conclusion of the current season. But Stargate will live on in the form of Stargate Universe, and now Universe has its captain.

Sci-fi series will return for a fourth season on USA Network.

4400 renewed

When a Stargate closes, a 4400 season opens.

Cable channel USA Network has renewed The 4400, the science fiction series about 4,400 humans who vanish from Earth over the course of 50 years and return en masse. The series will return for a fourth season with 13 new episodes in 2007.

Earlier this month, 4400 executive producer Ira Steven Behr said he wasn't sure if the network would renew the show, but if they did he was ready.

"We have at least two more seasons planned. If we were forced to go on, I think we could figure it out," he said in a conference call.

The 4400 has averaged 3.35 million total viewers a week this season.

Today, sci-fi fans received the distressing news that Sci Fi Channel had opted not to renew Stargate SG-1 for an 11th ...

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.

Eureka close to renewal

With any luck, fans of quirky science fiction series Eureka will be shouting just that next season. Sci Fi Channel is reportedly close to renewing the series, according to Variety.

The show follows the strange happenings in Eureka, a Pacific Northwest town populated by geniuses. Colin Ferguson stars as a US Marshall stranded in the town and trying to cope with all the brilliance.

"[Eureka] has hit its pulse, and its heart," said Bonnie Hammer, president of USA and Sci Fi networks. "It's reaching its stride in character development, and blends mystery with quirky humor."

Eureka has averaged 2.76 million viewers a week, helping Sci Fi become the 10th-highest-rated network in total prime-time viewers for the third quarter of this year. Other ratings winners for the network are Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis, and the final season of Stargate: SG-1.

Stargate SG-1 goes to iTunes

iTunes continued to add to its video bounty today through new deals with ABC News and MGM Studios, but the big question on the minds of industry insiders is: When will iTunes start offering full-length feature films?

The answer?

Soon, and definitely before the end of the year, according to a recent quarterly earnings call by Hollywood studio Lions Gate Entertainment. Company President Steve Beeks said his firm has a digital distribution deal with iTunes, as well as movie download sites CinemaNow and MovieLink.

"In terms of iTunes movie downloads, I think most likely some time before the end of the year," Beeks said. "We know when they are planning on launching, but since they have not announced it publicly, I do not think it is our place to say anything more about that. Calendar year."

Galactica goes bigger

This election day, President Roslin will have 30 extra minutes to sway voters against the villainous Baltar on Battlestar Galactica. The Sci-Fi Network has announced that the season-two finale of the acclaimed sci-fi drama, airing Friday, March 10, will be expanded from one hour to 90 minutes.

Battlestar Galactica is a remake of the 1970s sci-fi series about a human race whose homeworld is destroyed by evil robots called Cylons. The last of the humans escape death by fleeing in a ragtag band of spaceships, which are led by the sole remaining warship, the Battlestar Galactica, and begin a search for the mythical planet Earth.

In the current series' storyline, human President Roslin (Mary McDonell) is attempting to stave off the political ambitions of Baltar (James Callis), whom she is convinced is a Cylon collaborator. Admiral Adama (Edward James Olmos), commander of the Galactica, and Roslin must decide on whether ...

Captain/Major/ Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter
This sequel to the 1994 movie Stargate chronicles the further adventures of SGC (Stargate Command). It turned out that the Goa'uld Ra was only one of many alien System Lords who used the Stargates to conquer much of the universe. When Earth uncovers a working cartouche to decipher the coding system of Earth's stargate, they can now travel anywhere. Earth's military sends out SG teams to explore new planets, find technology, and oppose the Goa'uld. Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson from the movie are part of SG-1. They are joined by Sam Carter, a scientist, and Teal'c, a Jaffa who is convinced the Goa'uld are not gods. After Daniel Jackson was temporarily killed off in Season 6 (when actor Michael Shanks left the show for a year) they brought in Jonas Quinn, a scientist from another planet, to take Jackson's place. In Season 9, Jack O'Neill left the team and was replaced by Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell as team leader.
