Actress Claudia Black will return to SG-1 late in Season Nine, TV Guide’s Matt Roush is reporting. “I dug up a little scoop that Claudia Black, who plays Vala, will return for two episodes in the back half of SG-1‘s season, to air in the winter,” Roush said.
Michael Shanks (“Daniel Jackson”) reportedly told fans at last weekend’s official Stargate convention in Chicago, Illinois that Black would appear in the season’s nineteenth episode, “Crusade,” according to a report at Stargate SG-1 Solutions. If true, this indicates a strong possibility that Vala’s second return episode could be “Camelot,” the season finale and twentieth episode of the year.
Could Vala hold on for Season Ten … and possibly even become a series regular? Fans of Claudia Black certainly hope so. The SCI FI Channel is expected to reveal whether or not Stargate SG-1 will be picked up for a record-breaking tenth season in the weeks ahead.
