Pretty much all the cast members told us that, while nothing's definite yet, it sounds like there will be several Stargate TV movies produced after the series ends.


On one hand, I'm happy to get more Stargate. On the other hand, I'm really disappointed because the restraining format a movie will have. Questions will still be unanswered and each movie will have to have a singular story arc with beginning, middle and end.

Still, any SG-1 is better than no SG-1.

Exclusive: Stargate SG-1's Future

We've heard what's going to happen after the tenth season finale.
by IGN Staff

September 25, 2006 - When the SCI FI Channel announced last month that Stargate SG-1 would be ending at the end of the season, there was much speculation as to whether the series would be able to continue in some form. MGM has reportedly been shopping the series around to other networks but there don't appear to be any takers at this time.

Not necessarily, look at Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

I can't wait!! :D

Misinformation Watch:


The arrangement sounds similar to when Farscape ended, and plans were announced for several movies to air -- unfortunately only one has aired to date, 2004's Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars.

1.) There were no plans announced by anyone after Farscape ended of several movies to air. In fact, Henson kept its plans pretty much to themselves until PK Wars was going into production. Otherwise, no one ever made any "announcements" about "several TV movies".

2.) PK Wars wasn't a movie. It was a mini-series.

In general, this article over-promised and these writers are prone to exaggeration and inventing "announcements" that don't exist.

Seemed more like an 'editorial', and i just read 'em and shrug.

What happened to the earlier news that there were takers but MGM wasn't allowed to shop, because of Sci Fi?

I want to see season 11 and no movies. Do we want to see the "team" once a year for two hours? Or weekly for 20 weeks? Plus people move on and they will never get everyone together again after the first movie.

They will never keep everyone together for "several" movies. One, maybe two will get done and then they will all have other gigs and committments. Acting is their job and they have to work for their families. The actors can't sit and wait around to be available for the "next" Stargate film.

No season 11 is very sad nooz. :(

Considering how they kinda "made up" other things in the article, they may be making up that as well.

This does not seem to be a very reliable new source. Now, if I saw it in a reputable trade magazine like Multi-Channel News, who broke the cancellation to begin with, I'd consider it more seriously.

That's not how they'd film them, though. When TNT bought the rerun rights--and later revived the series for a 5th season--for Babylon 5, they initially contracted to do two movies. The movies named "In the Beginning" and "Thirdspace" were produced right after Season 4 production ended. That way, all the cast and crew were already together.

Then, they filmed two more movies the same way after Season 5 production ended.

Producing the movies in succession with little break would be the way they'd do it. They just wouldn't be aired that way. Kinda like how Lord of the Rings Trilogy was filmed in succession, but released years apart.

If they could get their act together, the ideal situation would to film the movies right after the end of this year's filming, but I don't think they have it pulled together. They'd have to be working out the contracts now.

BTW--here's some other trivia about the four Babylon 5 movies. Not every castmember was in every movie. J Michael Strazcinski wrote them that way. Maybe it was for budget reasons or maybe those were just the way he wrote the stories.

Unfortunately, the word from Vancouver seems to jibe with the IGN reports. The consensus opinion of the cast and crew is that SG-1 will continue, but either as feature or TV movies. I know, it's not what most fans wanted, but it's better than nothing.

Someone at savestargate made a post that the "movie" thing is just throwing us a bone to make us shut up. They save money that way. I'd rather have 20 hours vs. 2, or 4, or 6 depending how many films they do.

The only way I would accept feature or TV movies is on a gigantic scale of hype. Take the build up for Snakes on a Plane and the influence of the Matrix and you have a recipe for a continuing series.

Yeah, but how's 2, 4, or 6 hours vs. nothing at all? Personally, I'll take the 2, 4, or 6 hours myself. I'm just happy it appears SG-1 will continue on in some fashion after this season.

Maybe because some people feel he was ready to leave. Probably based on the fact that he hadn't signed on to do Season 11 for sure like the others had.

Couple reasons
1. Only regular cast member not to sign up for a potential Season 11
2. Him and Lexa already divide their time between Toronto and Vancouver
3. Him and Lexa have plans to move down to LA in the near future.

So I don't think he would've came back as regular if there was a next season.

See the difference between all you "people" and myself is I rather have 6 great hours without the needless filler than 20 hours in which only a few will be any good.

Plus they could always do five four hour long movies. That would be like a season! Wow!

My problem with movies is that all they can do is continue a certain story arc- like the Ori. No other plots will get resolved. Stuff like a follow-up to crystal skull will in no way be movie-worthy (same with all the other loose ends) so the only way we can see the resolution to those would be if they were written in as part of the movie, which would just be a cheap way to do it.

The creators for years and years teased us with Crystal Skull follow up lies. They have had, 7-8 years to do a follow up. None is coming and believing one might in season 11 is just dumb.

I hope they do make tele movies, out of the choices they have. If there is no way to make another season of the show, that is... ;)

It might give TPTB a bit of a boost to the budget, that might just cross over to more impressive effects, characters and general action/adventure in the movies :D

We'll just have to see if this report is confirmed or denied, then wait 'patiently' as fandom does for more details to come from the up-highs :p

I agree. If they do a movie(s) they should definitely make a point to resolve the loose threads out there like Jonas, Crystal Skull aliens, and the Ori. My fear is that they will just continue to develop new stories (not that that's bad) and leave the loose ones hanging. :mckay:

I would love a new series that involves many of the SG-1 cast. Hey I know, they should do a new show called "SG-2". This could then get them around the whole legal issue w/ Sci-FI. :)

Alright...alright, here is my plan. They get a new network to air season 11 and make TV movies! Then these movies spin off into a third series! Then, after 3 or 4 SG-1 movies they make an Atlantis movie which spins off into a fourth series. Meanwhile SG-1 is into its 15th season and Atlantis is going strong at 8 with the third series in season 2 or 3 and the fourth just premiering.

..............too ambitious? ;)

All the actors, with the exception of Michael Shanks have signed 11th season option in their contracts. They were planning to do one more year of the show. Good enough reason to be available to do any follow up movie.

If they aren't available, they'll be written out. But, looking back to the Babylon 5 movies and Farscape's miniseries, every key castmember was available. I don't see why that would be different with this cast.

In fact, with the B5 movies, all the cast wanted to be in all the movies, but it was JMS and Warner Brothers who didn't want all of them in all the movies. This caused some disgruntledness among some castmembers who got left out. One of the movies even lacked Bruce Boxleitner, who was the alleged "star" of the show.

i would prefer that they either do a bigscreen movie and then the spinof stargate command that wil hopefully be aimed at an older public then that of atlantis

or that they make an 11 season and for the us market selling it on itunes and dvd only


if they get to a 12 season can they then show it again on us television or can future seasons of sg1 never be shown again on us televison

I'd bet they'd be willing to come back. It's been steady employment for the past decade.
