TV Guide Takes a Peek at the Stargate Franchise

Daniel and Vala and the Ark of Truth from TV Guide article

TV Guide has a new article written by Ileane Rudolph concerning the upcoming release of Stargate: The Ark of Truth, letting viewers know that “we’re happy to share that it’s all about SG-1’s search for a fabled weapon that’s reportedly the only chance to stop the Ori from taking over Earth.”

In addition to covering the upcoming release of the movie on DVD (March 11 in North America), Rudolph also mentions the return of Richard Dean Anderson as Jack O’Neill in Brad Wright’s Stargate: Continuum. This stand-alone story is an “alternate time-line venture, where no Stargate program exists and the long-vanquished Goa-uld rule.”

“Hopefully these will demonstrate that we still have SG-1 stories to tell,” Robert C. Cooper is quoted as saying in the article. Rudolph concludes, “That means more DVDs could be on the way, though there are no deals yet.”

Concerning deals, the article mentions that Cooper’s and Wright’s Stargate Universe, the third television series, has not yet be signed off on by the Sci Fi Channel. The premise of this new show, according to Rudolph, “will have a new setting yet allow for crossovers from the other series.”

In closing, Rudolph hints at a possible summer-time premiere for Season Five of Stargate Atlantis: “In the meantime, Atlantis will be back for Season 5 this summer (probably July), and SG-1’s Michael Shanks will make a two-episode visit mid-season.”
