Former Stargate SG-1 co-stars Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping are planning a bit of a reunion. As GateWorld originally reported today on Twitter and SciFi Wire later confirmed with his management, Shanks has been cast in an upcoming episode of the SCI FI Channel’s Sanctuary.
The actor — who (need we even tell you?) played Daniel Jackson on SG-1 — will appear in the ninth episode of the upcoming second season, titled “Penance.” He’ll play a character named Jimmy.
All indications say that Sanctuary will air on Friday nights starting in October, alongside Stargate Universe.
The episode is written by Alan McCullough, a former Stargate scribe who has joined the Sanctuary team full-time this year.
Episode 9 will probably air in early December. Stick with GateWorld and our sister site, SciFi Stream, for more details on this episode when they become available.
