Stargate Atlantis coming to an end

August 22, 2008 @ 13:51 By: gordon Category: Seen on the 'net

Joseph Mallozzi, one of the executive producers of Stargate Atlantis, has confirmed in his blog that Stargate Atlantis is coming to an end after 100 episodes and 5 years.  Rising costs and the decline of the US dollar are two reasons he mentions.  As sci-fi television series go, SGA has had a decent run, so it’s not a complete shock that it’s being wrapped up — all good things must come to an end sometime.

Viewers won’t be left wondering what happens next at the end of the final episode.  We’re assured that they “will not be ending things with a cliffhanger.”  And there’s talk of one or more SGA movies, similar to the SG-1 movies that have been released after the end of the ten-year run of that series, so the stories should continue.

So, to the cast, crew and writers: Thank you!

    Sadly, I’m pretty sure this is the case. The blog I linked to belongs to one of the producers, so I’m pretty sure he’s speaking with a certain amount of authority.

    But, there’s talk of a new series called SG Universe and also a number of SGA movies, so there will be SG stories for a while yet. 🙂
