Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis news

Postby TerraFrost » Mon Apr 18, 2005 1:46 am

Season Nine of Stargate SG-1 and Season Two of Stargate Atlantis will make their world premieres on July 15, The SCI FI Channel has announced at their official Web site.

The new season of SG-1 will bring Ben Browder (Farscape) and Beau Bridges to the regular cast alongside Michael Shanks ("Daniel Jackson") and Christopher Judge ("Teal'c"), with 8-year series lead Richard Dean Anderson ("Jack O'Neill") bidding farewell in the opening three episodes. Claudia Black ("Vala") also joins the cast for what is now a 6-episode guest stint. And Lexa Doig (Andromeda) will appear in the recurring role of Dr. Carolyn Lam, the S.G.C.'s new chief medical officer and daughter to General Hank Landry (Bridges).

Amanda Tapping ("Samantha Carter") will return in or around the new season's sixth episode, following the March birth of her daughter.

The cast of Stargate Atlantis return for Season Two, with newcomer Jason Momoa (Baywatch Hawaii) joining the cast in the third episode, "Runner."

Veteran actor Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files) also joins the cast in the recurring role of Colonel Steven Caldwell, commander of the Earth battle cruiser Daedalus. Pileggi makes his first appearance in the season premiere, "The Siege, Part 3." He is currently contracted to appear in five episodes and has filmed four so far, the actor told GateWorld this week.

Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis will keep their current timeslots at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI in the U.S., and will likely be followed at 10 p.m. by the second season of Battlestar Galatica. The network has not yet announced whether that show will also premiere on July 15, but the fact that the network ordered 20 episodes of all three SCI FI Friday series makes it likely.

The new seasons of SG-1 and Atlantis will premiere elsewhere in the world later this year. Visit GateWorld's episode guides to read more about what's coming up!

Apparently, the intro in the US is shorter than the intro in Canada and in other parts of the world (and shorter than it probably will be on DVD). Here' the full intro:

How much confidence does SciFi Channel have in two of its three top shows? Enough to pretty much give them a go-ahead for a third season.

Sources at SciFi Channel are reporting that SciFi has unofficially decided to award both "Battlestar Galactica" and "Stargate: Atlantis" third-season pickups. The news was shared by SyFy Portal's Michael Hinman during a guest appearance on Sci-Fi Saturday Night on New Hampshire's 610 WGIR.

During the show, Hinman -- who appeared by telephone in the show's final hour -- said he had received unconfirmed reports that the third-season pickups have been decided. SciFi normally does not announce fate of shows during the first half of the seasons, which end this month. No word has been received on the fate of "Stargate: SG-1," but many industry insiders feel that the SciFi stalwart will see an unprecedented 10th season next summer.

"Battlestar Galactica" aired for the first time on SciFi in January for an extended half-season run, quickly earning a second season after strong ratings that beat out even new episodes of "Star Trek: Enterprise" on UPN. The show is in the middle of its second season, still enjoying strong ratings despite some audience erosion seen across the board. It stars Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, and has been critically-acclaimed in the mainstream media.

"Atlantis" is a spinoff of "SG-1," and also has enjoyed strong ratings since its debut in Summer 2004. It airs at 9 p.m. ET, just before "Galactica," on SciFi.

Both series will end their first-half season run this month, and will return for new episodes in January.

This is a rather amusing preview for Stargate:
