Yesterday, executive producer Joseph Mallozzi gave an update on Brad Wright’s attempts to continue the Stargate franchise, which includes SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe:
I was in the office yesterday to watch the Day 1 Mix of The Hunt. Great stuff! Anyway, while there, I talked to Brad. Needless to say, he’s been working hard to ensure we all get the opportunity to work with Mark [Savela, VFX Supervisor] in 2011. Nothing definite as of yet to report but a minor hurdle was cleared. Quite a few hurdles still lie ahead and there’s always the chance it might all be for naught – but right now, things are looking positive.
We spent a couple of hours in the late afternoon discussing the potential game plan if all goes well – and, if all DOES go well, I can assure you that it’ll be very, VERY exciting for all.
More news as it becomes available.
Hopefully sooner than later!
Wright stated that he had not given up on the franchise and that he and MGM were working on a plan to somehow continue the story that they had started. Not only had they planned to have five seasons for Universe, but they also have two scripts waiting for the SG-1 and Atlantis movies, Stargate: Revolution and Stargate: Extinction, respectively, both of which have been delayed due to economic woes.
In the meantime, Syfy still plans to air the final ten episodes of SGU’s Season Two starting this spring (most likely in April).
