Stargate Universe is A 5 Year Series

Indeed the producers of Stargate Universe have the planned the series to a degree which no previous Stargate series has been planned. According to consulting producer Joseph Mallozzi on a recent post in his blog,  the series has a value of five years in storytelling before its  planned conclusion.Mallozzi, specifically states that “there are a number of arcs and elements that will figure into the ultimate finale we have planned,” Mallozzi said.  “Ideally, we’d get five years to tell the entire story in satisfactory fashion but, if it came down to it, we could pay it off over the course of a single season.”

He added that there are no alternate plans in place as to how the storyline would continue in a different form [i.e movie], should the series fail to be renewed before reaching its fifth season.

While it would definitely be exciting to see the storyline further develop and reach a conclusion which ties all of the plots together to contain the series, Stargate Universe’s ratings in its current Tuesday night slots do not help support the probability of this outcome.  The series has been  one of two series struggling on Tuesday night on SyFy, with the other being Caprica, which has already been cancelled in its current inaugural season. Currently,Stargate Universe is averaging a total of 1.0782 million viewers per average household, for  the first half of its current sophomore season.

A decision on its third season is to be made later this month or in January, after the holidays have completed. It should, however be noted that Stargate Universe has a large DVR audience. This suggests that there is  indeed a strong fanbase for the series, however many viewers are making use of the advantages of  DVR and online viewing to keep up with the series. As a result, the audience is actually greater than what is officially accounted  for in the live time slot.

Mallozzi had the following to say in this regard.“I think our audience is there but simply growing more diffuse,” Mallozzi said of the ratings.  “It would terrific if the television industry found a way to catch up with the modern media’s technological advancements, find a way to make sure everyone is counted in those ratings — but barring a major miracle, I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

Be sure to stay tuned  on the blog for news regarding the decision on the future of Stargate Universe.
