    Default Multichannel News: Atlantis Ends Run on Sci Fi, Greenlighted for Movies

    Well guys, looks like our runs over. Unless Multicannel's pulling our legs on an astronomical scale, it appears Atlantis is going the way of SG-1

    ‘Stargate Atlantis’ Ending Run On Sci Fi After 5 Seasons
    "Space drama Stargate Atlantis will conclude its run on Sci Fi Channel after the current, fifth season ends next January -- but the network has greenlit a two-hour Atlantis movie to run after that and says the show will live on as a network franchise."
    ...

    “We share in the producers’ enthusiasm to move forward in this direction and we look forward to a strong and continued relationship on Stargate Atlantis in this new format,” Thomas Vitale, Sci Fi Channel senior VP of Programming & Original Movies, also said in the statement.

    Wright and Cooper are developing a third TV series in the franchise -- called Stargate Universe – and pitched it to Sci Fi Channel in late 2007, Wright told Gateworld.net in April. Sci Fi said nothing about that potential addition in its statement about Atlantis. Sci Fi has aired had new Stargate series in first run since 2002.
    Anybody have anything to add here, as I think I'm gonna be taking a good, long break from Gateworld now...

    EDIT: Confirmed by Executive Producer Joseph Mallozzi on his blog (comment 49)

    Re: the end of Atlantis.

    Yes, it’s true. I’m disappointed but not surprised.

    I’ll be commenting on this in tomorrow’s blog entry.

    Not very happy right now. I may have to leave the forum for a bit and calm down.

    It's not SCI FI this time. I want to make that VERY CLEAR. It's MGM.

    Yeah please, because I need to vent, I am not happy right now. This is even worse than how SG-1 ended. We should of gotten at least one more season.

    Someone please please tell me this is not true. *despairing* I wanted just one more season - I would have been happy with six. It would have been a natural end.

    I am so angry with them for doing this - I will never watch their Universe. I am done. No more.

    I like this suggestion. I like it a lot.

    Cancel SG-1 after 200, and watch SG-1 have an amazing season afterwards.

    Cancel SGA after GitM, and let's watch SGA more than earn it's now impossible 6th!

    Stargate Atlantis’ Ends Sci Fi First Run After Season 5
    2-Hour TV-Movie Greenlit For 2009 As Stargate Franchise Lives On In Features

    By Kent Gibbons -- Multichannel News, 8/20/2008 5:59:00 PM

    Space drama Stargate Atlantis will conclude its run on Sci Fi Channel after the current, fifth season ends next January -- but the network has greenlit a two-hour Atlantis movie to run after that and says the show will live on as a network franchise.

    After airing on Sci Fi sometime next year, the untitled Atlantis movie will be sold as a home-video title by producer MGM, Sci Fi told Multichannel News on Wednesday.


    MGM this year released two financially successful straight-to-DVD movies made after progenitor series Stargate SG-1 ended a 10-year run of first-run cable episodes on Sci Fi. MGM and the show producers are scheduled to make more in DVDs in future. A movie franchise is also envisioned for Stargate Atlantis.


    Longtime Stargate writers and producers (and Atlantis show runners) Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie will write the Atlantis feature script. Other details, such as how many cast members would participate or who would direct, were not immediately available.

    I third that. I suppose the movie is something to look forward to though.

    I wonder if we'll get more than just one two-hour movie after this season is over?
