Still Hope For A Third Season of Stargate Universe
With last week’s announcement of Stargate Universe’ cancellation many fans have concluded that the future of the Stargate franchise has been terminated. However, consulting producer of Stargate Universe says fans should not be so certain just yet.
Mallozzi indicated on his blog , that there still may be a minimal extent of hope , for a third season of Stargate Universe. Though he maintained that such an outcome was unlikely, he did assert that it was possible. To support his optimistic statement, Mallozzi added the following on his blog:
“Well, the SyFy cancellation makes it very long odds that we’ll be producing a third season next year. BUT IS THIS THE END? Damn you’re persistent. The honest answer is: I don’t know. No, that’s not entirely true. The truth is I do know some – but only enough to say it doesn’t look good and it’s very log odds we’ll be producing a third season next year – yet still only enough to say I can’t say this is definitely the end. At least for now.
Though, Mallozzi has not yet specified what other methods would be used to help revive the series for a third season, it seems that the producers are still investigating their various alternative options.Once further developments on this front have been released, we will be sure to post further information.
