Putting bias for Stargate aside it would be a good fit for Amazon. The general Stargate concept is a plot generating device in itself. Amazon would not need to spend as much as say Lord Of The Rings to produce it.(Even at that lower cost it will still be more than what was spent on SG1 etc) SFX have gotten 10 time better and cheaper so it would look great and Amazon is well suited to exploit any merchandising potential . Brad Wright is a proven produce to expand the franchise

Well Stargate needs a full reboot in my book. Darker, scarier, more like the movie. No lame Jack sarcasm. Definitely not film it in Vancouver so every planet doesn’t look like Canada in winter.

Actually, I couldn’t disagree more. Part of the charm of the tv shows was the humorous banter between the cast members. It separated it from all the different Scifi shows that have come out being “darker, scarier….” and may I add dystopian. I hope they keep the ethos of SG1 and Atlantis.

That’s unfair. That means I can’t watch it in my country. I recently got Prime, but had to cancel it right away because everything on it said unavailable so there was no play button on anything. I’m sick and tired of this unfair treatment. :(

Per-country rights can vary a lot, but I have to think that Amazon-owned shows meant to be showcases for Prime wouldn’t have a problem. The only reason they would be is if Amazon chose to sell rights to a competitor for some region.

Were you trying to access Prime Video content via your region’s Amazon retail website? — I believe in some regions Prime Video may require users to access it through a separate site: primevideo.com — did you try that?

We definitely need more of the same like SG-1 and Atlantis and preferably a continuation, not a reboot. Al Dunlop how can you say that Jacks’s sarcasm was lame? Sacrilege! It was one of the best elements of the show made it all the more worth watching. As far as Stargate concerns me, I always loved the series, not the movie. The movie was and still is, for me, just a necessary, but otherwise completely disregardable starting point of a wonderful universe brought to life by Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, Jonathan Glassner, Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie. The only… Read more »

Not sure how to feel about this. I have a feeling that Amazon purchasing MGM might eventually result in a version Stargate that we don’t really want. Hope I’m wrong.

If Amazon acquires MGM I hope the new series or films or whatever format we’re going to see the new Stargate in won’t be a Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin production. Those two ##### are trying to get their dirty mitts on a property they sold almost 30 years ago now that they see that it can be a potential for virtually endless money making. They claim they have a new “vision” for Stargate that somehow they couldn’t see all those years ago. Yeah, a vision of dollar bills filling their bottomless pockets. On the other hand I wonder if… Read more »

Whatever they end up doing, let’s hope it’s nothing like Origins. What a mess THAT was.

With Amazon wouldn’t we be limited to something like 3 seasons with approx. 10 episodes only?

far better than what we have right now.
Plus, given how many people sign on to watch the spinoffs, it is something that can be pulled out and dusted off more often.

Looks like the deal is done. I think Amazon was just tired of fans complaining when Stargate left Prime 😃

Oh boy… I don’t like this one bit. If they make another Stargate series, it better not be the SJW kind they hinted at 3 years ago… Or worse… I don’t want to see “strong female characters” who are black-latino-martian lesbians who use feminism in their “jokes”… And the funny thing is, they keep forgetting that SG-1 had one main female characters who was really strong since the late 90s: Sam Carter.
Please just let it go…

I think you need to let it go. I’m so tired of right-wingers bringing their “culture war” nonsense into SG fandom. Nobody cares about “SJWs” or “Wokeness” or whatever utterly meaningless buzzwords the right love to invent to divide and exclude people. Let. It. Go.

Have they gotten approval from regulators in US, Europe and elsewhere yet?
