I blame Comcast / NBC it looks like the are doing to SCIFI what they did to tech tv /g4.

I just say HANDS off CSN Chicago or the team may just pull out!

Also I Hope you lose the NHL to fox or ESPN.

Also 2010 Olympics just said that NBC should never have them again.

I never really got into Universe much… And Stargate Sg1 pretty much ran it’s course… but I hope I speak for all the fans when I say… Please, don’t leave the pegasus galaxy like that.

I still think SCIFI should continue SGU with a mini series to finish off it’s story instead oF it ending into a cliff hanger. Which will be very DISSAPOINTING! I have loved SGU’s second season and was hoping for a Third! I also think a Fourth Series of Stargate would be ideal for the franchise’s future. I have been watching Stargate since (SG1) first came out when I was young and, I have been a fan of Stargate ever since. I’ve also enjoyed all of the three stargate’s series. I would love to see how the Fourth Series of Stargate… Read more »

Here’s how I see it: Brad Wright decided to terminate Atlantis because it wasn’t his baby. He wanted to build a new Stargate series and make it more like Battlestar Galactica. He also re-wrote “Children of the Gods” to suit his Dieney-esque vision for it to make it more “family friendly”. Who asked for this? Not the fans. When the Stargate fans complained about terminating Atlantis, he ignored them. When fans complained about the slow pace of Universe, he ignored them. He thought he’d get “new” fans. He was wrong. His ego couldn’t handle the rejection, even though it wasn’t… Read more »

Guys seriously, how is a Star Trek example a good thing? How is a reboot, alternate timeline, screw everything, blow up important planet, screw fans, etc. a good example? I’m sorry but Stargate means everything that was, behind and in front of camera, not something recreated out of nothing, only with same name a same spinning ring…

Guys, while I still wish they had given SGA that final season and introduced SGU later, honestly what else is there to say except that this is a very sad day.

oh and i dont know how you guys can talk about future stargate tv, no sane person would greenlight another one. its gonna leap back into feature movies, ones that have nothing to do with the tv shows.

I don’t get how some fans can say that the new movie screwed the fans? I didn’t get that feeling at all, and I grew up watching TNG and have watched EVERY episode of EVERY Star Trek that has aired since then (and seen TOS of course). I felt that they approached it with nothing but respect by having Leonard Nimoy in there and saying “this is all new but your universe still exists” and as for blowing up Vulcan, I thought that was a great creative decision. They had to do something to say that this was more than… Read more »

how about we all work together to convince mgm to get it back?

There will be no reboot. One thing a lot of you seem completely unable to understand is that the show NO LONGER MAKES MONEY. It did at one point – primarily back in the halcyon days of SG-1 – but no longer. It gets extremely poor viewing figures, and it doesn’t sell DVDs. Why on earth *would* they keep it going, or reboot it? The reality is that Brad Wright took a risk. He could have wrapped up the franchise with one more season of SGA and 1 more SG-1 film, but he chose instead to invest in something that… Read more »

By the way, if you want to show support for something, show support for Sanctuary. Stargate is done, but Sanctuary is still going, and it sprang from the loins of Stargate… watch it, buy the DVDs, and if you’re going to write to SyFy about something write to them about Sanctuary.

no no no no no no no no………. Why MGM Why? Why cancel SGA, it was a hit, yes SGU as still awesome but SGA was better and I still want to know that happens. Sad face :(

Duneknight

i honestly dont see how one more SG-1 movie or an SGA movie wouldve helped anybody. We would still be in the same situation we are now. SGU at least showed us how far stargate concept could go.

StarGate 1997-2011 RIP. You can talk about reboots all you want, but the stargate we all know and love is gone. I really thought stargate would endure, unlike star trek, but hey atleast all the SGU haters got what they wanted.

Im so done with TV, its nothing to gain from it other then dissapointment.

Live long and prosper gate fans, see ya in 10-50 years for a crappy reboot.

SG1 movie cancelled. SGA movie cancelled. Potential SGU wrap-up movie written-off (and just as the end of the season was getting *REALLY* good, too). Bite me, MGM. :(

Best of luck to all cast, crew and producers.

Maybe this would be a good time for David to watch Farscape, maybe start discussing a Farscape episode every week.

I liked SG-1, and didn’t find SGU interested. But I LOVED SGA!!! I have all 5 seasons! I am furious that they aren’t going to make that Atlantis movie. I am tempted to never watch tv ever again because of this!!!!!

Duneknight

@badtaste, I agree completely. 1997-2011 RIP. Stargate will never be the same ever again, this chapter is officially closed.

If you wanna talk ratings MGM,try looking in the internet,and you will see how many people around the WORLD actually download and watch Stargate(SG-1,Atlantis,Universe).

And if you are short on money,let us, the fans decide what we want to watch. Let us fund our favorite series,and don’t restrict yourself with just the American continent.It is a planet of more than 7 billion people.And we want to contribute to our favorite franchises.

All I’m saying is,let the fans donate even a dollar,and you’ll have enough money to fund both Stargate films.

Being a diehard SG fan, I thought SG-1 and SGA were their best. SGU could have done better if they maintained the original cinematography like the predecessors. And to have the Atlantis and SG-1 movies canceled makes me ever so PO’d. The Stargate “universe” with all that it has become has so much more potential. It’s a shame that Stargate has filed chapter 11.:(

This may be a bit long winded. But follow me here. I was one of the people who was upset over the cancellation of SGA, I really don’t think the story was any where near done. Although a wish did come true on the last episode. Atlantis did return to earth. However I felt that the Wraith Story line was left dangling big time. Then you have the whole “evil Asgard” story line that was incredibly promising. However I was grateful for the 5 years and 100 episodes. With that said, I was also happy to see a 3rd Stargate… Read more »

They are really going to let this happen all three shows gone just like that. SYFY you suck and MGM you recieved $500million for your bankruptcy. All you need to give up is less than 1 percent to get a movie going. You still have fans that want anything stargate. 17 season’s they gave you just like that you turn your back on all the stargate shows. I do not watch SYFY anymore you lost me. One show left sanctuary I watch online downloads. Thank You stargate for the decade and a half of excitement, laughter, action, and fun you… Read more »

All the talk of rebooting the series or franchise hurts. It doesnt sound good. If they reboot the series or what not, they will have new cast members. I dont feel like starting from the top and having some noobs playing Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks, Christopher Judge, RDA, and the rest of the cast’s parts for some movies and stuff. I am sorry I’m just in mourning right now. This is pretty much like we just lost a dog, and having someone come by and say its okay, will get you a new one. If the show has to end,… Read more »

I enjoy SGU, but even so, the writers and producers just made way too many mistakes: not enough characters that you really care about; not enough of the right kind of tension; not enough focus on the tech; everything about the stones; trying to move from a SciFi story to something more like a soap opera; introducing significant story elements that are never resolved (such as the whole alien race that altered Chloe); failing to explore the ship; the Lucien alliance (seriously, why?); the forever-grumpy Rush; etc, etc. Even the discovery of the bridge was anti-climactic. The episode from last… Read more »

I have been watching Stargate since 1998 when a mate at work told me about it, so I watched the following week and from then on I was hooked, I have watched all the SG1 episodes (and bought on DVD since they got canceled) and all the Atlantis (same again with DVD). And although I never really got into SGU, I will find it very strange and sad not having my weekly stargate intake. I do hope they do something, but for now I still have my DVDs and at the minute I am re-watch season 3 of SG1 and… Read more »

@professorhenryjonesjr – “Why on earth *would* they keep it going, or reboot it?” You mean like they did with the new Star Trek reboot after Voyager and Enterprise failed to perform? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, with the right people at the helm, Stargate could go big. It was always being held back by the vision of the creative team behind it. But what it needs now is time. It has to go away for a while, which I don’t like, but I understand. It needs to cast off all that it was so that it… Read more »

I’m sad to see the end of Stargate but it did run its course and Ive all my boxsets to re-watch anytime I please. I would’ve been up for another SG-1 movie but oh well!

What will likely happen now is that Dean Devlin & Co. can pick up where the original Stargate movie left off, make their own two sequels to finish their planned triology thereby creating a parallel Stargate universe that will spawn a new Stargate TV show for a new era! :D Bring it on.

I hope the make a spin off for their sakes. Sci Fi will lose a bunch of fans for good. Science fictions shows are becoming more comon on other networks. Stargate made the Sci Fi channel!! Have they forgoten that??

Season 1 of SGU was eh. It had it’s strong moments, but could have moved faster. Season 2 on the other hand got a lot better. Paced better, and you could tell that the characters have started to become a family. That’s what makes this sad for, had SGU remained like it had in season 1, the end of the franchise would not be as tragic, but now it is. I don’t think there should be a 4th series. They should just make a tv miniseries for SGU to finish things off. Then possibly an SGA movie, and end things… Read more »

As to the reason for SGU’s cancellation, here is my theory;
It was MGM’s fault, Brad Wrights fault, SyFy’s fault and the haters fault. So there, that about does it.
Goodbye SGU, we hardly knew thee.

SGU ratings failed because it never had a proper opening like the other shows.
