Stargate Universe executive producer Joseph Mallozzi has announced in his weblog that principal photography has wrapped for the show’s second season!
It’s been a great year and, looking back over the 20 episodes produced for SGU’s second season, I have to say I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished: great stories, grand arcs, wonderful character moments both big and small, set-ups, pay-offs, and more than a few surprises. As much as I’ve enjoyed working on these episodes, I’ve enjoyed hearing your reactions even more. So, thanks to everyone out there who has supported – and continues to support – the show! You aint seen nuthin’ yet!
Congratulations to the cast and crew for another season of Stargate! There is, of course, still post-production to be done over the next few months (Mallozzi has stated, “It takes us about six months from shooting to final.”), but basically, it’s all done as far as leaving the season in a cliffhanger is concerned (as is usual for Stargate). News of renewal may not come until January 2011, but even so, Mallozzi wrote about what the process would look like if a Season Three is given the green light:
At the end of every season, we’ll look back and take stock, discuss what worked and what didn’t from a creative standpoint, consider what the fans responded to and what didn’t work for them, receive input from the studio and network, and move forward. Suffice it to say that provided we get that third season pick up, season 3 will see some shocking, monumental developments.
Even though new scripts are not being written right now, Mallozzi stated that both Brad Wright and Carl Binder were already thinking up storylines for the new season. What is in store for the crew of Destiny? Mallozzi couldn’t tell, but teased, “Let’s just say the second season finale sets up a VERY INTERESTING scenario.”
New episodes of SGU are still being aired first on Syfy on Tuesdays at 9 PM ET. We’ve got two more episodes to go before the mid-season break. Make sure to visit Solutions’ Season Two index for guides (including spoilers) for all 20 episodes.
