Neither the Wraith nor the Replicators, the G’ould or the Orii could beat Atlantis..but NBC Universal is canceling the show.
The current Stargate Season 5 WILL BE THE LAST season of Stargate. The last episode will air in January 2009.
WHAT IS GOING ON?!!
Is Sci Fi Channel stoned? Who pays these clowns?
Stargate SG-1 had a 10 year run, Atlantis is doing well in the ratings and is arguably the best show currently running on Sci Fi channel. This current season with the command change was starting to look very promising and there is still so very much of the Pegasus Galaxy to explore.
It’s just wrong.
Stargate Atlantis – like SG-1 isn’t dead mind you. Instead the greedy self-serving braniacs at SciFi will keep Atlantis limited just to straight to DVD movies. Yes Stargate Continuum was a great movie – but personally I’d rather see a full season of episodes than 1 or 2 movies in a year.
“We’re excited to tell Atlantis stories on a bigger canvas,” said Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper, co-creators of SG-1 and Atlantis, in a statement. “The successes of the two original Stargate [direct-to-video] movies The Ark of Truth and Continuum have shown us the opportunities that the movie format offers. We have plans for both SG-1 and Atlantis to remain vital as we expand the franchise.” Atlantis will air a milestone 100th episode in January 2009.
