SGU Returns on Space on Tuesday,March 8
Indeed, the day following SyFy’s announcement of SGU’s return date in the USA, Canada’s Space Network, has announced that SGU 2.5, will debut on Tuesday, March 8 2011 at 10:00pm eastern standard time.
This new time slot marks the change from Friday nights to Tuesday nights.
Though SGU scored relatively poor ratings in the USA, which resulted in the series ‘ cancellation, the show has generated record breaking ratings for Space. A reason for the change in the timeslot is unknown.
Read the brief excerpt description of the first episode of the second half of the season, Deliverance, which was provided by the network below. Please note the description does contain spoilers and those who wish to maintain a strong sense of surprise, should avoid further reading.
The final 10 episodes pick up from December’s jarring cliffhanger, where the Destiny encountered two warring races and an ally thought dead returned. In the Season 2.5 premiere, “Deliverance,” the Destiny is now locked in a battle with a Drone Command Ship and surprised by the arrival of the aliens that abducted Rush and Chloe.
