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.

Darren created GateWorld in 1999, and today is the owner and managing editor. He lives in the Seattle area with his wife and three children.

  • Can’t wait to see this…be good to see him and Amanda working together on something different…

  • I hate this. Why does Sanctuary have to have people from Stargate on it?

  • Sweet! Michael Shanks and Alan McCullough in one package! I loved the episodes McCullough wrote for SGA (like “Outcast”)!

  • Me like!
    I’m now more interested in Sanctuary than SGU, it has more of the SG cast, feels more Stargate and isn’t pretending to be Stargate when it’s not.

  • @pigeon Because they WANT to be on it, are you going to stop them, they can choose to be on whatever show they want, if they want to work with their old co-star on another TV show what’s wrong with that?

  • Yeeeeeees :) Soo cool to have at least some of the former SG cast back together.. No matter where :)
    Can’t wait :D

  • V. interesting….can’t wait to see what his character is like….knowing his dedication and hard work, he will make it a most excellent and enjoyable one….

    Deeds xx

  • Excellent! Look forward to seeing Michael and Amanda together again on screen.
