stargate universe season 2 trailer 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.

 What are your thoughts on Mallozzi’s statement?Has it developed a sense of hope for you as to SGU’s future and what are the possible methods which could be used  to   help keep the series on the air, for a third season?Sound off in the comments section below or send us an e-mail at blogmanagement@ymail.com.

UPDATE— Producer, Brad Wright also commented on  his efforts to  have Stargate Universe continue in some form, in a recent interview with  Show Patrol. In the interview, Wright specifically stated the following:

We haven’t given up on finishing the story we started,” Wright, who expressed, his gratitude for fan support, after his recent series of ongoing discussions with MGM officials ,  also added the following in his interview.

“It’s heartening to see so many people upset about Syfy’s cancellation of the show,” he said, “but it’s important to remember that their license fee represented only a portion of our total budget

 When  further details on Wright’s progress is made, we will be sure to post it onto the blog.

 What are your thoughts on the  cancellation of SGU and  what possible forms/ ways could the series continue in? What is your opinion on the interview and do you think Wright will be successful in reviving the series ? Sound off below.

Stargate Universe Cancelled After Two Seasons

Indeed we are greatly disappointed to have to report that  Stargate Universe has been cancelled by  Syfy . The series, which is currently in its second season, will air the last ten episodes in its second half this spring, before  drawing to a premature end.

 The   news of the abrupt cancellation was first posted on Twitter today, where Syfy’s Craig Engler indicated that “Syfy will end its original action-adventure series Stargate Universe when the show returns with the final 10 episodes of its second season in the Spring of 2011,” Engler said. “The Stargate franchise — consisting of Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe — has aired on Syfy since 2002.

Stargate Universe was to be different from its sister series,  Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis in that it was to be  more of a character based drama, which although  would maintain the  long term elements of adventure and  humour, would also develop a more darker grittier tone. The series initially received a great deal of negative fan reception as the inception of the series was announced in simultaneous reports to the cancellation of the previous, Stargate Atlantis, causing  many fans to be misinterpret  the news reports to suggest that  Stargate Universe  was an intended replacement of this previous incarnation.

 Although the series  debut received strong ratings, with over 2 million viewers, by end of the inaugural  season, the series was merely attracting 1.5 million viewers. In an effort to regain viewership,SyFy made a decision to move the  Friday night series to Tuesdays, a night where programs  tend to typically attract more live viewers . However, this effort has proven to have gone in vein as the first half of the current second season  merely averaged 1.1 million viewers. It should, however be noted that the series scores significantly higher ratings in DVR viewings, suggesting that there is still a strong fanbase for the series. Possible reasons for the great number of delayed viewings include the great competition present from other network series on Tuesday nights.

There has been no news as to the possibility of a fourth Stargate series nor has there been any news on the developments of  a  SGU movie, to follow the series finale Deliverance, which will air in June 2011 as a cliff-hanger.

To  make matters worse,  various cast members of the series have  reported that they found out about the news from their fans on Twitter and received no prior notice of the cancellation.

  We would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire cast and crew of Stargate Universe for their efforts into this series. Indeed, we embraced the new direction of Stargate, which you had helped create and  were looking forward to having the  series further develop in  its exciting direction.We shall remember   both the characters and storylines , which the series established and had the potential to  further explore, for years to come.Thank you for a spectacular two years and  best wishes for the future are extended to all those involved in the series.

 What is your reaction to the series’ cancellation?What are your thoughts on the future of the Stargate franchise?

UPDATE-  Producer, Joseph 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, saying the following. 

“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”.

Further developments on alternative approaches to producing the third season, will be posted on this blog as soon as they are available.
