More than a year after its initial release on DVD, Stargate: The Ark of Truth is finally gearing up for its American cable broadcast premiere on the SCI FI Channel.
The Futon Critic is reporting that the initial airing of SG-1’s inaugural full-length film will hit television screens on Friday, March 27 at 9 p.m. (8 Central), immediately following a rebroadcast of the final episode of Battlestar Galactica.
Serving as a conclusion to the Ori storyline that was halted by the cancellation of SG-1 as a series, The Ark of Truth finds the team searching for an artifact that can stop the Ori and their followers once and for all. Along the way, they’ll discover another threat by an old enemy plus a traitor in their midst, and an unexpected source of help.
The airing of Stargate: The Ark of Truth will also mark the first new broadcast of an SG-1-based Stargate production since June of 2007, when “Unending,” SG-1‘s final episode, first aired. The movie is currently available on both DVD and Blu-ray high definition.
SCI FI has also picked up the rights to air Stargate: Continuum, which is expected later this year on the cable channel.
