SGU Movies To Save The Series?

As I’m sure you are all aware I am vehemently opposed to Syfy Channel’s plans to cancel Stargate Universe.  If you’ve watched the show I’m sure you can see how the show has grown up.  Instead of seeming mostly like a ripoff of BSG with some SG-1 and SGA tossed in the show has developed its own mythos.

SGU executive producer Joseph Mallozzi has made it clear he intends to pursue any method to save the show.  Luckily for fans he has been updating his blog on a frequent basis detailing the current status of his effort to save SGU.  He revealed last month that the door was pretty much closed on a third season of SGY on someplace other than Syfy Channel.  That leaves us with a few potential alternatives such as web series, comics, or wrap-up movies.

A couple weeks back Mr. Mallozi was able to provide some more clarification on the state/future of Stargate Universe:

“Hopefully, by the time [the season finale] airs, we’ll have definite word on a potential movie or two,” he said.

“If it’s a go and fans can look forward to a proper end to Destiny‘s mission, then ‘Gauntlet’ will certainly set the stage for a grand conclusion. If, on the other hand, things don’t pan out and ‘Gauntlet’ does turn out to be the bittersweet finale, fans will be thrilled, touched, heartbroken — and left to wonder what could have been.”

If you are a fan of Stargate Universe keep your fingers crossed that this movie deal gets worked out.  I, for one, would love them to be able to finish the story of the Destiny and her crew.

    My fingers are crossed. I have enjoyed watching this show immensely. I fear it is the end of SGU.

      I’m hoping they can do something. I think we might have been spoiled with the two SG-1 movies that wrapped that series up. We still haven’t gotten the SGA movie(s) to finish that series. At this point I doubt there will be any SGA movies.

    Fingers and toes are crossed. It’s such a shame that SyFy could not see its way clear to renew this excellent series, which only gets better and more mature with each episode. Wrapping up the story in a pair of TV movies would be better than nothing, but oh, what this series could have accomplished in the five seasons it was designed to run…

      I’ll take whatever I can get to see how they finish up the series. Even if its a matter of them releasing a script outline online if everything fails.
      Its a shame that shows can’t really get long arcs anymore. Just think how different Babylon 5 would have been if they never finished the 5 year arc.
