The SCI FI Channel today officially announced the U.S. television premiere dates for the first two Stargate SG-1 feature films. Stargate: The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum will air in successive weeks early this spring.
As previously reported, The Ark of Truth will air Friday, March 27 at 9 p.m. on the cable network (story). The film picks up where Season Ten of the show left off, and wraps up the two-year Ori story arc.
Continuum will follow the next week, airing on Friday, April 3 at 9 p.m. More or a stand-alone adventure than Ark, the second film follows the last of the Goa’uld System Lords, Baal (Cliff Simon), as he travels back in time to prevent the Stargate program from ever coming into existence. Richard Dean Anderson makes a special guest appearance.
The two films were first released on DVD last year (in March and July, respectively).
What about future adventures for SG-1? While MGM has not yet officially announced anything, a script for a third film — centering on Anderson’s Jack O’Neill — is in the works. Stick with GateWorld for the latest!
