Just when you thought hope was coming around the corner for a new stargate show this crap hits.

In my opinion this could increase the probability of a new stargate series. Since, as stated in the article, sg already has a fan base and some name recognition and thus it sounds like a good idea for a streaming service to create a new sg series. Are you worried that a giant streaming service would release a crappy sg series or am I missing something?

I think he was just speaking about the timeline. Brad was speaking about the show like it was within a year from being announced (I was hoping late 2021). This potential sale might take a while, and MGM may delay anything new Stargate until the transaction is done. So they might have added another year or two wait. That said, I really hope it doesn’t go to Netflix, as it has been consistently reported that they cancel shows after 3 seasons because they no long draw new customers.

The mouse just made a huge move buying FOX. So Disney buying MGM would be a stupid move and wouldn’t make any sense. They already have much on their plate with all those SW etc. shows on Disney+.

Disney might not be bad IF Marvel Studios ended up with it. I think Marvel might do a super job with Stargate.

If we are going to be realistic about it, MGM’s bankrupcy in 2010 was *the* step backwards for Stargate. MGM’s new leadership did nothing but sitting on Stargate, just mishandling and milking the franchise via licencing. So this January they held preliminary talks with Netflix and Apple about a possible acquisition, but decided to wait for the release of their last Bond film, so they could have a better position during those negotiations. Covid hit and stayed, and they decided to postpone the premier of No Time To Die TWICE now, matter of fact costing them much-much moneeeey. Not to… Read more »

Real question is: does that mean Chevron 6 is encoded or do we have to start dialing again?

It means there’s not going to be anything at all on a new SG front until MGM properties are sold (if they’re sold at all in the end) and if the new owner wants to do anything with it. The odds are decent that the owner will want to do *something* with it, as I don’t imagine any buyer, except maybe a private equity firm, would want it just to make some money off the back catalog. But, assuming it’s sold, that sale has to be made, close, and the owners have to look at where they want to go.… Read more »

My money is on Apple.

Pockets insanely deep and A-TV is in desperate need of content.

Most of MGM would be laid off – the only great thing about MGM is the brand name.

The only thing that seems likely at this point is that we will have to wait several more years before anything Stargate materializes on screen. It depends on who buys it..but what incentive or reason will they have to give Brad Wright control of the franchise? Netflix maybe but the other streamers? If Star Trek is any indication they want ‘fresh blood’ and ‘new ideas’ no matter how crappy they are at actually producing good science fiction.

Who wants to buy it when all the others have their own streaming platform to worry about? MGM doesn’t have much content to offer.

If a sale does happen hoping it is someone who will take care of the Stargate franchise and right by it.
