Why? WHY?? Why try to set up a whole new form of Stargate, when the entire community wants a continuation of the series we love, especially with original writers wanting to return??

This is how to kill a franchise and alienate fans 101

I do want Brad’s show, but with some perspective I can admit that appealing to the core fan base – while extremely important! – is not enough to make a revival of a legacy IP into a hit show (especially if it costs $10 million per episode). Amazon seems to be looking to broaden the audience and bring new Gaters into the fold. While we might have qualms with the strategy or the content that plan produces, I think it’s the right move.

I disagree. I’m tired of this notion of studios using existing franchises to try broaden their streaming audiences. When will we accept that not everything will have wide appeal? The expanse certainly didn’t despite being a great show. Why does everything need to be a mega franchise that tries to appeals to everyone? It’s a flawed strategy that results in destroyed franchises and lost money for studios. If anything they should be trying to recapture the core audience, and then build on that to attract others that missed out when SG originally aired, but would probably have enjoyed it. That… Read more »

Yeah because that’s worked SO well with LOTR for them…Or Wheel of Time. Alienating original fans for views is what is ruining the Sci fi genre of TV. I won’t even watch a new SG if Brad isn’t involved.

And it doesn’t mean that original writers can’t return as guest writers and consultants along with other members of the crew and production staff. And make more on-camera cameos, which would be great.

The community is pretty split from what I’ve seen. If Brad’s pitch is what we were going to get, I’d actually PREFER a reboot over that. Ideally of course, we’d get a continuation of some sort but one that also serves as a conclusion to the existing franchise and sets up a future for the series.

I have to agree with you. The idea of having a Stargate that’s gone public after covid and that just doesn’t fit right. A big part of the draw to Stargate was that it seemed like it could be real, felt like it could be real even though it wasn’t even the science and some of the episodes were fitting into like real world stuff at the time. But a Stargate that has gone public when in reality there is no public gate or anything like that would just ruin the whole Aesthetic of the story and series and besides,… Read more »

I agree with Tsumi with Sg1, SGA & SGU there are lose ends that need to be tied up and played out before moving on to a new chapter. Brad Write is the one to do that if not more.

Agreed they need to start it back on the destiny and clean everything up. I just recently watched all the sg1, Atlantis, and universe again and am still mad they cancelled universe when it was supposed to have a minimum of 3 more seasons. I want to know if My theories were accurate or not. How the Android ships were part of that signal. Destiny was chasing was a defense mechanism if you will.

Brad Wright is the only person for this job. He is obviously the best choice because he would keep the fans interests first instead of trying to push social justice messages on everyone.

I only want a continuation that either ignores or fixes Heroes, if not there’s no way in hell I’d watch it.

Bad Robot helping to create new Stargate? I can see the potential plot points now: We learn Jack and Sam got married, had a son, but Jack left them so he could gate around the universe. He is then stabbed by his son and thrown off a cliff. A new girl, knowing nothing of the Stargate program, interns at Cheyenne Mountain and teaches Daniel Jackson how to properly read Ancient (didn’t know he’s been doing it wrong this whole time?) and beats Teal’c in hand to hand combat. She is immediately promoted to Major and is the key to solving… Read more »

This is spot on! I’d be interested in an Expanse-like Stargate, maybe close to what Universe tried to be, but I’d also be down for more “classic” SG-1 type stuff. But absolutely no Bad Robot.

Reading the rest of the comments in this thread, it sure looks like Stargate fans are against Bad Robot, in particular, or a reimagined Stargate, in general. We can only hope that someone working there sees this thread and takes it to heart.

Really, Stargate as you know it is dead going forward unless they went for a direct continuation and that’s almost certainly not happening.

I’m sure many will either attempt to watch it or will watch it and say they like or love it even if they put out trash. That’s how it goes.

If it will actually be worth watching or not is yet to be seen. For me, its not likely since I’ve not liked a single thing Amazon has ever done or touched.

Again with the reboots. Why? For the love of all System Lords, why? I loved The Expanse. It’s easily the best Sci-Fi show in the past 10 years. Maybe The Expanse crew could create something cool. As an example, doesn’t The Outer Limits of the 90’s and the Stargate shows have some of the same crew and personnel? But for me personally, I’m not interested in starting over. I’d like to see a continuation of the established universe. And I’m guessing there are a lot of other SG fans who feel the same way as me. Regarding Bad Robot, I… Read more »

I would have preferred Brad Wright’s vision for a 4th show. But he would have needed a new staff room anyway. Maybe these new producers can bring new, fresher ideas into the franchise while they can extend the existing canon without reboot. And who knows? Maybe MGM/Amazon will order more than one spinoff so we can different tone of adventures. I am happy at the moment that something happens finally. Please try to be positive after years of waiting.

That is unbelievable. We need wright to keep writing and finish at least what he started. We do not need a reboot. Whats with Hollywood and the reboots now a day. Same fan base with new fans more ratings. Reboot does not mean that they’re going to keep original fans watching. God am pissed.

So Brad Wright did an AMA on Reddit today and someone asked him about his Stargate script, etc. Here’s what was said: “Are you writing or have you written a new Stargate script for Amazon instead of the old one written for MGM before COVID? We now know your original script is not of interest to Amazon, or not enough ambitious for them, but are discussions with Amazon closed for unknown/non-public reasons at this time or are you just waiting to be called by them? What is the situation? BradWrightAMA I doubt it’s because my script wasn’t ambitious enough, because… Read more »

Thanks, shelly — I’m actually writing up Brad’s AMA right now. What seems clear to me here is that, since the deal closed, Brad hasn’t heard beep out of Amazon. His script has fans inside of MGM (and Jenny talks about this in the full DTG episode). But multiple sources seem to be saying that they are looking at Stargate pitches from other people, and so if they are doing that and still not approaching Brad for a conversation, then it stands to reason that they are passing on his script. It is speculation, but pretty informed based on sources… Read more »

I forgot to mention I replied to Brad’s comment asking if he could confirm Amazon passed on his script. I doubt he’ll answer since the AMA’s over and he may not even see my question but he also said he has no secrets so if he does see it, I wish he’d answer definitively whether or not Amazon has read the script and they passed it over. If that’s the case, I don’t think he’d be under any obligation to keep it quiet. I know that’s what everyone believes has happened but I’d like to hear him say it.

Darren, sometimes even after they are supposed to be stable and not in flux things can still end up in flux. Look at the on again/off again nature of the fourth Kelvinverse Stark trek film for evidence of that. Leaving aside whether or not those films warrant another one being made, that is a film that keeps getting back in flux after Paramount say it is stable.

Open scene shows McKay enroute to Atlantis to help with a malfunctioning console in an lab. (Will not power up, because it was a once flooded section) While McKay and Zelinka attach an Naquadah generator and argue over the problem, McKay activates something that causes an Antenna array to rise up from a tower, also damaged from flooding & the Asteroid belt.

Whatever Amazon does with Stargate, will eventually lead fans directly back to Brad’s work through SG-1, Atlantis and Universe. Honestly, if Amazon wishes Stargate to be a successful flagship franchise, it’s absolutely ok to greenlight multiple projects. Even separate ones. Long-time fans deserve it.

I agree. JJ Abrams blew up Romulas and Vulcan in the first star trek movie he did. And the proud and noble race of Romulans they turned into some death metal band with that freaky black and white stuff all over their face.

I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. Things in the world are getting worse. And spiritually movies are reflecting that dark energy.

I think they should make the new show centered around the Jack clone that we last saw walking into a high school.

It has been a number of years since then, and he would be an adult now. With a back story we don’t know (and could explore), and being a clone of Jack would allow tie backs to SG1.

This would also allow them to bring the original Jack, Sam, and Daniel back for guest appearances.

Take a lesson from where Star Wars has been more successful: find someone who is actually invested in the franchise, a la Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. Obviously it should be someone with industry chops, but there has to be someone out there that could bring a vision, even if it’s a new team, and have a sense of what the appeal of Stargate is as to not alienate old fans.

That being said, keep Abrams, Kurtzman, and the rest of their deconstruction artists away from any more good properties!

This should and better be a continuation of the series. We as a collective Stargate Family have so much time invested in this amazing series. I would love for the next step to be full disclosure. Where the entire world finds out about the existence of the Stargate. Perhaps they could start off with the Riots and what not that SG1 was so afraid of. Either way this needs to be a continuation. Not a whole new reboot. That would probably not be as good as the original.

Stargate! Continue the Universe saga, Eli has been working hard keeping what he can working. 75% of the cryo tubes have failed. Eli has lost weight (which he really has! Good on you) Earth finally gates to the ship mid galaxy to send help and tech, and enough energy to send back the survivors. A new willing crew takes over.

I don’t know when studios will stop making tv series/movies that are not what people want. It’s been said time and time again, there are too many streamers (plus (+) everything!), not enough quality content, and all the reboots that have been done have sucked so badly that some of them now are having to reboot the reboot just to make any money back. I don’t know if these streaming services and production companies are seeing more initial profit on shows ‘so bad they must be seen’, or they are doing this accidentally on purpose?

Please don’t reboot it. Please continue it. I get that the original actors are older, and whatnot, and cannot return in the same way. That’s totally understandable. But there are so many fans out there that absolutely loved the Stargate franchise, including myself. Sg1 was my absolute favorite. Jack, Sam, Daniel and Tealc were my dream team. I absolutely loved and adored that show. I enjoyed the spin-offs, also. Please don’t try to fix something that’s not broken. Please try to continue it.

Whatever it is, if it’s following the grimdark trend, I’m not going to watch.

I don’t need excessive violence and gore to enjoy a show. IP like Stargate SG-1/Atlantis, Doctor Who, and ST:TNG are awesome science fiction everyone can enjoy. Nudity is fine, cursing fine, but excessively graphic violence breeds a sickness in the world that we don’t need more of.

The shows I mentioned are about awesome people doing awesome things.

That’s the type of show I want to see more of.

I would LOVE a Stargate show led by Fergus and Ostby. “The Expanse” was absolutely incredible television.

They would do a Universe story conclusion justice for sure, but even better would be a future version of Earth where the political fallout from not only having the Stargate public, but established bases on the moon and off-world colonies could cause very, very interesting dynamics. (This is essentially what The Expanse set out as anyway to great success).

YES to Fergus and Ostby.

NO to JJ Abrams. I’m tired of him jumping ship from franchise to franchise.

This is exciting news; while many fans may decry it, this is the good news they’ve been waiting for (potentially). Instead of waiting for what they say as a perfect outcome, this is a real possibility for StarGate to continue whether it’s rebooted or remains in continuity. The Expanse was an excellent show and a very good adaptation of some of the book series before the show ended; I think that team understands why the elements of an existing setting and plot need to be respected. They also have a tangential connection to Chris Judge via God of War. As… Read more »
