Though the cable network has not yet officially announced a start date for the new season, July 11 appeared this week on promotional material at the Stargate Atlantis Facebook and MySpace pages. The pages appears to be official MGM promotional outlets.
This would come just three days after the release of Season Four on DVD (story). Also making July a big month for the Stargate franchise is the July 29 release of the next SG-1 movie, Stargate: Continuum.
A season premiere on July 11 would also place the mid-season finale on September 19, assuming SCI FI takes its typical break for Labor Day weekend.
The show will retain its 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific time slot, if the promotional material pans out.
SCI FI is expected to confirm the premiere date for Season Five in the next month or so. Stay tuned to GateWorld for the latest, and check out our episode guide to find out what is coming!
