Principal photography on the second season of Stargate Universe kicks off today, with the cast and crew reassembled at The Bridge Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The show was renewed for a full, 20-episode season late in the fall. Viewers have only seen half of Season One so far, with the back ten set to air beginning April 2.
The producers of SGU promise that the second half of this season will deliver on the things fans are wanting most: aliens, space battles, and a deeper look at the men and women who populate the Destiny. (For much, much more on that, check out Joseph Mallozzi’s very interesting blog posts from late January.)
The season premiere, “Intervention,” promises to start off on the cliffhanger where the two-part season finale, “Incursion,” will leave off. But “Pathogen” — currently slotted fourth in the new season — will shoot first.
Two new staff writers join the production team for Season Two: Remi Aubuchon (Caprica, 24) and Linda McGibney (Homicide: Life on the Street) (story). Paul Mullie and Joseph Mallozzi have also been promoted from consulting producers to executive producers.
Series co-creators Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, and executive producer Carl Binder also return.
Season Two is expected to premiere worldwide in the fall. Keep track of everything we know about next season in GateWorld’s episode guide!
