“Daniel Jackson” actor Michael Shanks will help to kick off the third Stargate television series, making a cameo appearance in the series premiere of Stargate Universe, “Air,” consulting producer Joseph Mallozzi confirmed on his blog.
“Michael will have a cameo in the premiere,” he said.
Shanks will join former SG-1 co-star Richard Dean Anderson (“Jack O’Neill”), who recently confirmed that he will appear in the premiere. SG-1’s Gary Jones (“Walter Harriman”) has also announced his participation (story).
Shanks’ most recent appearance in the Stargate franchise was just last year, in the mid-season two-parter of Atlantis‘s fifth season. He and Anderson both gave the Atlantis team a send-off in the series premiere of Stargate Atlantis, in 2004.
Stargate Universe premieres this fall on SCI FI Channel in the U.S., and Sky One in the U.K. Learn more about the show at GateWorld’s Stargate Universe Launch Center!
