View Full Version : What if Ronon leaves in Season 7?

With Ronon leaving in season 7 I guess they'll have to bring Teal'c in to replace him... And Teal'c can't leave the Milky Way without his best buddies Jack and Daniel. Carter will probably already be in Pegasus commanding a BattleCruiser... Hey that might make for and interesting dynamic--Jack, Daniel, Carter & Teal'c--it just might work. Rodney & Shepp could still help, but they are outranked an outclassed... they'd be welcomed in at least 12 eps per season.

Let's get to a Season 6 let alone a Season 7 to even worry about this. Again, GW had to make such a big deal about an uncertain comment where the actor is not even sure what he will do. :S

I agree with briangate. jason m. mentioned one line about leaving and it's turning into all this speculation... wait til (if) S6 or S7, then we'll see if he stays or goes.

I like ronon's character myself.

It is way way too soon to speculate on a S7. A lot can happen in those two seasons. Theorotically if their is a S7 I won't be surprised if the Ronon is still killiing our green friends.

I agree about 7, but Season 6 would still have the cast under the current contract, including Jason M. It would be Season 7 when new contracts are made aka higher budgets. According to Joe M, Atlantis has not eached that point of being very expensive to produce like SG-1 was in S10. Right now, SCI FI will have no other solid drama series for Friday once BSG ends. Dr. Who and SJA are not exactly striking up stellar numbers.

I don't think there'll be a S7. Although anything's possible I suppose. But if they do get that far, I wouldn't be surprised if Jason wasn't the only one leaving. Joe Flanigan sounded a little bit like the weekly commute was starting to wear on him in his last interview with Stargate Magazine, and I'll be a little surprised if he re-signs after he finishes his six year contract. David and Rachel will be finishing their contracts as well - who knows? David obviously has no problem finding other projects to keep him busy. I don't know if Rachel has anything else going on.

Plus - considering what happened to SG-1 in its later years? I'm not sure I want Atlantis to go much longer. I'd be happy with six years and no more (maybe less - we'll see how this season goes :D).

Green to Ripple In Space!!

Also, on a small notion... Why season 7? Unlike the others who signed a 6-year contract at the beginning of season 1, Jason doesn't have 6 years on there.... Just a thought. If he leaves, it might be sooner than season 7 (which I might add is highly unlikely of ever being made professionally).

"[I] wouldn't say I'm sick of [Ronon] yet," Momoa said. "But one more [season], and I'll probably be good. I'm 28 now. I'll be 30. ... It's just time to move on, and I'll want to play something else."

Very well said.

Season 5 is still shooting, we don’t know if there will be a season 6 and yet there is a lot of speculation about something that might happen in season 7 if there is a season 7. I think for now I am just going to enjoy season 5 and I will wait to see if there is a season 6 before I worry or speculate about a season 7 which is what, almost 2 years away?

Thanks Jumper, I was about to rebuttle FH's post. Because he is for sure not talking about Season 5 being the last.

Now Season 7 like I said is going to be very hard to get to, imo. Yes, I am being realistic for once. :rolleyes: Reason is, like Killdeer said, all new contracts. Still, I read a lot of interviews from the cast that they are pleased and are loving their character's direction. So who knows. Mr. Momoa may be challenged and he could very well defintley stay. Let's not count our chickens before they've hatched.

As per Season 6, A decision will be based on Season 4.5 and the first half of Season 5's numbers. For the record the Season 4 finale "The Last Man" attracted 2.6 total million viewers and scored a 1.8 HH Rating. Nearly 400,000 more viewers than the Season 3 finale. YES, THE POWER OF THE RATINGS SHALL SET YOU FREE. :p

I must admit, the whole Dr Beckett carry on has made me start to see these kinds of situations in a different light.

I stopped watching Atlantis after The Return Part II. I knew what was brewing, as word had already leaked out about Sunday. After that, I no longer had access to Sky One anyway, so I couldn't see Atlantis (except for buying or hiring the DVD's) if I wanted too. - Reading transcripts on Gateworld has not inspired me! - I did get the chance to watch First Strike, and that just put me off even more.

As a result, I look back on Seasons 1 and 2 and find I can still thoroughally enjoy them, and get an inkling of what might have been, had the series not drastically changed in the way it did. - I guess what I am saying is, don't panic about season 6 /7, when we you haven't really had time to properly digest season 5 yet.

If Mr Momoa does decide to leave the series prior to it ending, (which I doubt, I can't see Atlantis's narrative going 7 years) that will leave at least five years with him as Ronon involved. Some tv series in their entirity (The Bionic Woman, Battlestar Galactica - both versions, and Blade the Series all spring to mind) don't get that long!

Enjoy the journey while its still ongoing!

One thing that might entice Momoa to stay is to finally get rid of the hair, and I mean completely. No more wigs, hairpieces, weaves, what have you. He doesn't want it anymore and I don't blame him.

Googled it, but can't seem to find anything beyond fan speculation.

Maybe Darren knows? Because I remember a GW article back when Atlantis was renewed for season 2, where it said that all the returning cast had sign a 6 year contract, and it was my understanding that this was done at that time (when it was renewed for s2, not at the beginning of s1). Maybe I'm remembering it wrong :o

Sure. And Paul McGillion too. Producers can end the actors' contracts and it happens in the industry all the time, for whatever reasons. But I don't see what that has to do with the likelihood of a season 7. The point is that if the actors' contracts are valid up to and including a possible season 7, their contracts won't have to be renegociated in case the show gets picked up for a season 7 (i.e. they can get a new season at a lower cost that the cost they would have if they have to renegociate the contracts, and that's important from a business point of view).

Paul Mcgillion likely has a recurring role contract now. It gives him work and the freedom to pursue other work since a full-time role would tie him up all season. I believe he is now on break and will come back when the 2nd half begins to shoot.

See, they should of offered that to Torri as well, give her a decent role and let her have the freedom to pursue other jobs between eps.

Don't be surprised if Jason Momoa decides to stay if we even get to a 7th season. 2 years is a long time, anything can change or not change depending how he feels now.

Yes, TPTB can cancel actors' contracts for any and no reason. It's not like they have to justify wanting or not wanting to continue a certain story line, or any other reason they might have for it. It happens all the time and it's just how the business has always worked.

I'm not sure about the actors having always to work until their contract expires. Maybe it depends on each case, maybe they can do it but they have to pay the studios fees. No idea.

LOL. Several people posted stuff while I was typing my reply too. :P

My post was a reply to a post about season 7 not being very likely due to the contracts expiring at the end of season 6. I posted that I believed the contracts end after s7. The point I was trying to make is that the contracts might not have to be renegociated until after season 7 (IF there's a season 6 and a season 7, of course).
When I saw your post about Torri Higginson's contract, I thought you were replying to that post about the 6-year contracts and season 7, and I didn't see what the decision about canceling her contract had to do with having to renegociate the actors' contracts in a couple of years.

The question should be...if JM leaves then how will Ronon die?

Exploding tumor? Na, too cliché.

Wraith food? Nope, can't feed on him...made runner cause of that.

Teyla shoots him after she finds him in bed with Keller? Possibly.

Sheppard shoots him after finding him in bed with Rodney? Not likely. Rodney would go for shep though.

Rodney kills him...after becoming super rodney again but this time he's evil.

Ronon kills himself after discovering he is actually a wraith.

Actually, I don't think so.

If you look at Stargate history, those that wanted to be gone were never really killed (Danny ascended, Hammond retired or something, and Jack...went away), while those who were forced off of the show were killed (Frasier, Grodin, Carson, Weir, etc.).

Jonas bucks this trend, however.

One thing that might entice Momoa to stay is to finally get rid of the hair, and I mean completely. No more wigs, hairpieces, weaves, what have you. He doesn't want it anymore and I don't blame him.

(If Ronon loses his hair in some way during S5, I've not heard about it. Of course, I'm not actively following spoilers for S5.)

Jason didn't want the dreads any more for himself, because of the weight. He never wanted Ronon to lose them.


The question should be...if JM leaves then how will Ronon die?

I will go with...

<snippage>

Wraith food? Nope, can't feed on him...made runner cause of that.

:ronan::ronan::ronan:

It wasn't because they can't feed on him, it was because while feeding on him the wraith realised he was so strong and would make a good runner.

"The Hive" was left ambiguous as I recall, w/ Sheppard even commenting that he might have made it.

Well since he didn't know how to fly a dart, I'm not sure how he could have gotten off of the hive before it exploded.


Jason didn't want the dreads any more for himself, because of the weight. He never wanted Ronon to lose them.

But they have to sew them back on for filming and sewing in tracks is really painful.

Did he? After that one vague mention of the Ori taking his planet, one can only assume he died in vague circumstances, just like Ford.


Well since he didn't know how to fly a dart, I'm not sure how he could have gotten off of the hive before it exploded.


Something I never really understood... Didn't they say in The Lost Boys that they had flown the dart but that they weren't as good at it as Sheppard would be?

Something I never really understood... Didn't they say in The Lost Boys that they had flown the dart but that they weren't as good at it as Sheppard would be?

Here's what they said:


KANAYO: None of us have had much success flying it. Banged it up pretty bad the last couple of landings. It's in need of some repairs.

FORD: And a real pilot.

We know that Ford probably left after Sheppard, et. al. did so Ford, an inexperienced pilot who is at best not very good at flying the dart has to get the dart, fly it out of the hangar bay, fly it past the other darts in the battle zone (dodging both them and their weapons fire), escape the shockwave caused by the hive's destruction, and successfully land the dart and escape through the stargate (or, if he knows how, fly the dart through the gate but still have to land it eventually).

I don't know how doable it is for him.

Wraith food? Nope, can't feed on him...made runner cause of that.

Teyla shoots him after she finds him in bed with Keller? Possibly.

Sheppard shoots him after finding him in bed with Rodney? Not likely. Rodney would go for shep though.

Rodney kills him...after becoming super rodney again but this time he's evil.

Ronon kills himself after discovering he is actually a wraith.

Dr. Wier returns as a replicator and makes him into...a replicator.

Ronon discovers death by chocolate ice cream.

He does a Barny Five and shoots his foot while the gun is still in his holster and dies of massive blood loss.

He comes to earth and is put on a make over show, where he kills the 5 gay guys, then gets the death penalty by lethal injection. Of course it takes 10 times the amount of potassium to kill him than a normal prisoner.

Ronon is infected by replicator nanites and is made into the Terminator and a kid named John Connor has to kill him.

Ronon is killed by a piano falling on his head after Keller took him to a concert in NY city.

Ronon dies of boredom after being subjected to Rodney and Daniel trying to out talk one another.

Jack takes Ronon fishing, he falls into the pond and drowns.

Ronon finds himself trapped between Carter and Rodney at a science fair. That's enough to kill anyone.

Last but not least, Ronon clones himself a hundred times and they all turn on him.

How the heck did Atlantis jump the shark? Last time I checked they are still fighting the Wraith, and one in perticular who has become more advanced. Talk about character and enemy development. That to me is a show that is going in the right direction. Also season 5 will have the team exploring the pegasus galaxy and Atlantis again, so how the heck is that different from the beginning?

As per Ronon leaving, lets get past a Season 6 before we even concern ourselves.

I disagree with the comments people make like "Oh maybe Jason knows something we don't". Um yeah ok, sure. He just said in a recent interview that he got so into his character he never had so much passion in acting. Rachel Lutrell is loving the direction of her character. I see a very happy cast and crew. Heck, why the hell would Paul McGillion even return for a recurring role if he did not get along with the producers. He could of said no like Torri. Maybe it's not the producers but certain actors who have the issues. Amanda Tapping wanted to stay but she could not blow such a great opportunity. She'll be back though in several eps. That to me shows the cast is happy. So please stop spreading rumors that Joe and Co are making everyone unhappy. I am sick and tired of the false accusations. Please have evidence to back things up, like I do with my ratings rants. Thank you. Again, Just talking in general.

With Ronon leaving in season 7 I guess they'll have to bring Teal'c in to replace him... And Teal'c can't leave the Milky Way without his best buddies Jack and Daniel. Carter will probably already be in Pegasus commanding a BattleCruiser... Hey that might make for and interesting dynamic--Jack, Daniel, Carter & Teal'c--it just might work. Rodney & Shepp could still help, but they are outranked an outclassed... they'd be welcomed in at least 12 eps per season.
If that happens I think I will jump ship as that has "jump the shark" written all over it. IMO Jason leaving is at this point nothing more than a rumor that has gotten way out of control. If and I stress if he leaves it is IMHO not the end of the world. I love Ronon but simply him leaving because he wants to branch out is not enough to be an issue.

I'll bite.

My issue isn't Ronon leaving but the way he would leave and what would happen to the role afterwards. If the actor who plays Ronon wants to leave he permanently must leave. I hate the vacation time some actors take to rest and recoup and try to reprise the role when (and this is a leaping statement) the need for something better fails them miserably.

In any event, if he goes...a few cameo roles would be nice because I don't want him dead fully. Maybe hook him up with a lady and keep him off the show or something. But he bumps into the team from time to time.

I was tempted to suggest maybe leaving this open to bring back Ford. But that's way too much and as I've said in the past it's really too late for Ford at this point. In any event, I wouldn't be too upset with Ronon leaving since I don't see it too detrimental to the storyline.

Although Ronon is still the most well written character on SGA, he doesn't necessarily hold the show together except in my little world. Plus as a fan I have no loyalty to any character. :)

As for Teal'c replacing...I think that's a ludicrous idea since they don't really need to add to keep a token. Unfortunately if they add Teal'c, I'd seriously see it as a misstep by TPTB and they'd have turned a great character like Ronon into a token muscle man. It's not needed or necessary. As for the others coming in...I didn't know Carter and the rest would definitely be turning SGA into what the lemmings accused the show of becoming when Weir was elminated and Carter took up the spot of intermittent leader.

I personally would not be against having an all new cast taking over to tell you the truth. I'm tired of this crew sort of falling into the same silly highjinx they haven't learned from in the last 4 or so seasons. At this point their stupidity in situations has reached over my head and I wouldn't mind seeing a new crew entering into stupid highjinx of the same rationale. They can leave the old characters there to tell them how to make the situation worst though. :D

Sorry for being harsh, but if Jason doesn't want to stay even if he gets better salary, he or any other actor finds it boring or not enough satisfying from the carrier perspective, than they must let him or her go. :o

I would imagine that there are a few more contracts to fret over after S6. If I recall correctly, JF's contract might be an issue also. He has not said anything publicly as Jason has, but who know what will happen?

I for one feel that with all the possiblilites that lay ahead for the Stargate franchise, eg. movies, conventions, books, more seasons, etc., that to publicly say you might be leaving, is a bit rash. Jason says he is only 28, well yes, you are ONLY 28. He has a lot of years ahead of him. The Stargate franchise can possibly be considered a 'cashcow' for all concerned. Not that Jason wouldn't be a part of that in some fashion, but it would be nice if he would consider finishing out the series.

Hopfully if the quality remains high and viewership steady, maybe he will reconsider. But in the end he has to do what is right for him.

Briangate78

Not necessarily. They've done well so far with having past characters guest star.

I hate the vacation time some actors take to rest and recoup and try to reprise the role when (and this is a leaping statement) the need for something better fails them miserably.
Like Soaps? Yeah that is getting old though a first grader could write better scripts than the writers on the soaps.

In any event, if he goes...a few cameo roles would be nice because I don't want him dead fully. Maybe hook him up with a lady and keep him off the show or something. But he bumps into the team from time to time.
Well while cameo roles are better than nothing I'd rather if he leaves that a guest spot is more than a cameo.

Meh Ford is dead and gone and while I can live with it if Ronon leaves he is IMHO an essential part of the show and way better than Ford.


Although Ronon is still the most well written character on SGA, he doesn't necessarily hold the show together except in my little world. Plus as a fan I have no loyalty to any character. :)
Well actually IMO all the characters are very well written though I do have loyalty to Shep,Teyla, and Rodney and really hope none of them leave.

Not necessarily. They've done well so far with having past characters guest star.
To an extent I won't agree. It's when I think of Ford do I have a sense of disillusionment. Not to mention, I like when they leave in glory and don't really return. It opens the door for other things. As I said though, I don't mind maybe one or two come backs but they'd have to be extremely few and far between.


Like Soaps? Yeah that is getting old though a first grader could write better scripts than the writers on the soaps.
Actually I was referring to actors who take time off for things bigger and better (like a movie career but just turn into extras on other shows) and when it doesn't work out they come back. It irks me to no end. I won't deny that it's seen a lot with soap actors. I know a few one in paticular an actress who plays Robin in General Hospital--won several awards, left for the big screen and just ended up playing extras with two lines in shows like Party of Five or Firefly. I prefer if they stay away and let the show go on. Not my choice to make, but it's a personal gripe.


Well while cameo roles are better than nothing I'd rather if he leaves that a guest spot is more than a cameo.
I guess I should have been more careful in my wording. I meant guest spot rather than a five minute cameo. He of course has been a regular. But again I would prefer it few and far between.



Meh Ford is dead and gone and while I can live with it if Ronon leaves he is IMHO an essential part of the show and way better than Ford.
I see the importance his character could play but when I was still an avid watcher of SGA...Ronon, taciturn as he is, was basically wall paper at times with a good one liner. They were not and I still feel have not used him to his max. But compared to everyone else, he's the best developed and the most three-dimensional character there is. The rest of them are, for all intents and purposes, lame and one-dimensional. Sometimes, I see more to Shep, but then he falls flat.



Well actually IMO all the characters are very well written though I do have loyalty to Shep,Teyla, and Rodney and really hope none of them leave.
As my above states...I think everyone else is overall terribly written when compared to Ronon. Ronon is a phenomenal character, although they can push him even more. Of course if we take Ronon out of the list and you set up the heirarchy amongst the remaining characters...including recurring. I get the feeling Zelenka beats Shep, Teyla, and McKay by a landslide.



Agreed. Turning this into Sg-1 redux would be a very bad idea.


While the show could survive a major change like that I disagree with the way the show is going. Personally they are going in the right direction and I don't want that to change.

I don't now how I feel with the changes made. At this stage and post S4, I've become ambivalent...since the characters who felt some endearing qualities have since lost it. So if Ronon leaves, it won't be the last straw in my on and off again following, but it will decrease it more. I won't be upset with the character gone but I will have problems with the way he's handled in future if he loses the varied and unpredictable persona he has.

warning I am in a "mood" so don't read unless you are prepared!
there will be weeping and wailing in the streets, riots will break out, disappointed fans will be throwing their 52 in wide screen tvs out second story windows! there will be earthquakes, floods, asteroid attacks, famine everywhere, locusts, ants, and SMOG....
*shrugs shoulders* oh well, we will survive! :D:D

LOL! Rach! That sounds like that Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd cartoon they took off of Wagner's 'Ring of the Neibelung'. Love it! Earthquakes! Tidal Waves! Lightning! Thunder! SMOG!!!!!

Seriously, I'd be upset. I was upset when we lost Jonas, Janet, Jack, Aiden, Carson, and Liz. I'll still watch Stargate because it's one of the three best things on TV.

I don't think there'll be a S7. Although anything's possible I suppose. But if they do get that far, I wouldn't be surprised if Jason wasn't the only one leaving. Joe Flanigan sounded a little bit like the weekly commute was starting to wear on him in his last interview with Stargate Magazine, and I'll be a little surprised if he re-signs after he finishes his six year contract. David and Rachel will be finishing their contracts as well - who knows? David obviously has no problem finding other projects to keep him busy. I don't know if Rachel has anything else going on.

Plus - considering what happened to SG-1 in its later years? I'm not sure I want Atlantis to go much longer. I'd be happy with six years and no more (maybe less - we'll see how this season goes :D).

I think it's way too early to speculate on who might leave or who might not. For Joe, while the commute is awful, it's a steady gig, good salary, and he's got a family to support. As for Jason's comments, me thinks a mountain has been made out of a molehill.

Jason Momoa said he didn't want to play Ronon after six seasons. So, if Atlantis lasts more than six seasons, who will replace Ronon. It definately won't be Ford again. What do any of you think?

If they look for brains instead of muscles, Jonas would make the most perfect choice....

With Ronon leaving in season 7 I guess they'll have to bring Teal'c in to replace him... And Teal'c can't leave the Milky Way without his best buddies Jack and Daniel. Carter will probably already be in Pegasus commanding a BattleCruiser... Hey that might make for and interesting dynamic--Jack, Daniel, Carter & Teal'c--it just might work. Rodney & Shepp could still help, but they are outranked an outclassed... they'd be welcomed in at least 12 eps per season.

With SGA not being as popular as SG-1 it will probably finish at the S7 mark anyway (as is the standard with most shows) possibly even finish before

Moving SG-1 to Atlantis and downgrading the Atlantis cast to helping out in 12 or so eps a season would be a seriously bad idea imo

Actually SGA is more successful internationally than SG-1 was according to MGM.

Her name wasn't even spoken thus far, she had about half a minute of screen time and I'm not crazy about noname characters being promoted to full time. But you could see the attraction she'd have for the writers: eye-candy and by the time a S7 aired, she would be an "established character".:D Still, she'd be a better choice as a team member than Nancy Sheppard on the base á la House M.D. S2.

But seriously, I don't know who could replace Ronon if Atlantis manages to go as far as a Season 7 AND Momoa wants to leave. Lorne is simply not interesting enough on the long term (imo!), Ford is most probably dead... hmmm. Zelenka could fun though, it's just that the team doesn't require TWO brilliant astrophysicists.

That would drive Shepard nuts. :D

I don't think there's going to be a Season 7 (S6 seems a likely ending for the series, even if they do some direct-to-DVD films a la SG-1), so I don't think this will be much of an issue.

If there is a Season 7 and he does leave, Lorne makes sense character-personality wise, but not practically. It would basically be a demotion for him, as he leads his own team right now. They could bring back Cadman. They could promote this Vega character. Or they could bring in someone now. If they go the lattermost route, I hope it's an Earth-born character and not another "badass alien."

He's a shallow character who just gets a kick out of blood and guts. Sateda did help explain this but I still don't particularly enjoy watching him on screen most of the time because he's usually just portrayed as a "badass alien" with a nifty blaster who kills Wraith, has superhuman strength and endurance, and then is suddenly useless in episodes with no action.

Actually I liked Teal'c a lot because despite his tendencies to seek "Jaffa revenge" he was useful beyond combat situations and unlike Ronon he didn't growl and grunt, need to be reminded not to kill when it wasn't appropriate, and he was more social in his own way (maybe not having lengthy conversations but he did make an attempt to better understand Earth with its unusual people and culture very different from what he knew on Chulak). Also, superhuman strength and endurance doesn't bother me when you have a symbiote or tretonin coursing through your veins, as opposed to an ordinary human.

Teal'c produced such things that Ronan never could...Just look at.

Daniel: Go ahead, Teal'c, tell them how deep you are! You'll be lucky if you even understand this!
