As fans recover from last month’s stunning season finale, production on Stargate Universe is plowing through its second season in Vancouver, British Columbia. Filming is around the mid-point of the season, which premieres this fall.
Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi continues to keep fans in-the-know at his blog. This weekend he revealed the titles of more upcoming episodes, including the Season Two finale! These final episodes of next season are still in the script-writing stage, so of course they are subject to change.
Here’s the run-down for the second half of the season, with the newest titles in bold:
“Radio” may be bumped or retitled, since Mallozzi mentioned it in a previous entry but did not include it in the full season list Saturday. Check out the complete list of episodes in GateWorld’s Season Two guide.
SGU‘s sophomore year promises to expand on the mythology of the Destiny and her mission, while sticking with the series’ established tone of dark character drama that seeks to portray a more raw and realistic look at human beings.
“We’re definitely ‘fleshing out the main characters’ (and those ‘side characters,’ as well) in the show’s second season and, with that, demonstrating that these people are far from perfect,” Mallozzi said. “And, as Brad already alluded to in a recent interview, we will be taking advantage of the gritty realism to go to some pretty dark places in the coming season.
“There’ll be plenty of ‘crazy’ to go around in SGU’s second year and, yes, many of those questions will be answered or, at the very least, explanations will be hinted at as we use them to build some bigger arcs. We’ll be doing more exploring and more adventuring, both on and off Destiny.”
Season Two of Stargate Universe is expected to premiere either the last week of September or the first week of October on Syfy Channel in the U.S. — on its new night, Tuesdays. Stick with GateWorld all summer long for our continuing coverage of SGU and the entire Stargate franchise!
