The show returns with “Intervention,” which picks up where the first season’s bloody cliffhanger left off.
Its companion series, Amanda Tapping’s Sanctuary, will also premiere its third season on that night. While there is no confirmation on the time slots, we expect them to keep their old times of 9 p.m. (SGU) and 10 p.m. (Sanctuary), respectively.
Meanwhile, while we hoped that Caprica would air alongside the shows in the fall, Syfy has decided to air the second half of Season One starting in January — a full year after the start of the season. There is no word yet on a second season pick-up.
Tuesday nights will bring stiffer network competition for the shows (story), but also a higher overall TV viewing audience. It’s Stargate‘s first time airing new episodes on any night other than Fridays in the franchise’s 13-year history. But in the summer months, Tuesdays are very successful for Syfy’s other original shows (Warehouse 13 and Eureka, now airing new episodes).
