If you’d made us guess exactly when the second half of Stargate Universe‘s freshman season would begin, we’d have picked Friday, April 2.
Even before the series premiered this fall, Syfy said that the second half would air in “Q2” — the second quarter of 2010. And April 2 happens to be the first Friday in Q2.
MGM confirmed today via their official Stargate Web site that this is indeed Syfy’s target date for “Space,” the eleventh episode of SGU Season One. Of course, that’s subject to change between now and the spring, and Syfy is still the boss of its own scheduling.
Barring any unforeseen breaks, that would put the season final on June 4, 2010.
We haven’t heard anything about the show’s return to Sky1 in the U.K. or SPACE in Canada yet, but it’s a safe bet that new episodes of Universe will pick up in April and air around the same time as the U.S. premieres.
Meanwhile, the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica will take over Stargate‘s time slot starting on January 22, giving it 10 weeks before the return of SGU.
Season Two will begin shooting around the first of March, and will premiere in the fall — likely the first week of October.
