Good news keeps coming for Stargate fans in Australia, with the “Atlantis Rising” events coming to Sydney and Melbourne later this year.
Since we first reported on these two events last week event organizer The Hub has added two more Stargate Atlantis cast members: Jewel Staite (“Jennifer Keller”) and Torri Higginson (“Elizabeth Weir”).
“Return to the Gate: Atlantis Rising” opens August 10, 2019, in Sydney and moves to Melbourne on August 11.
If 2 doctors aren't enough, how about 3? She replaced Carson Beckett on Stargate Atlantis as the head of medicine, but she's not a replacement in our hearts. We're thrilled to be bringing @JewelStaite aka Dr. Jennifer Keller to Australia for Return to the Gate: #AtlantisRising! pic.twitter.com/3iQ5ICedp0

The actors join their fellow cast mates Joe Flanigan (“John Sheppard”), Paul McGillion (“Carson Beckett”), Rainbow Sun Francks (“Aiden Ford”), and David Nykl (“Radek Zelenka”), previously announced for the reunion tour.
It’s been ten years since Stargate Atlantis signed off the airwaves, in January of 2009.
Staite has also recently been announced as a headliner for Visioncon, May 10 to 12 in Springfield, Missouri.
We’ll monitor further announcements as “Atlantis Rising” draws closer!
