Stargate Universe Midseason Finale News; Also SG-1 Third Movie Title and Tapping’s Return to ‘SGU’

stargate_01-1After the phenomenal SGU episode “Time” aired last night, Stargate news started staking up across the web. Here’s a rundown on the latest happenings in the world of Stargate.

The Name of the Third SG-1 Movie is…

The third SG-1 movie has been given a name according to GateWorld and that name is Stargate: Revolution. The movie is reported to take place between the end of the last SG-1 movie, Continuum, and the start of Stargate Universe and in the words of producer Brad Wright, “is a Stargate story that brings O’Neill back in a big way”.

Tantalizing, isn’t it?

But the question on everyone’s lips is with MGM being auctioned off soon, will Stargate: Revolution and the Stargate Atlantis movie, Extinction, ever reach our DVD and Blu-Ray players? More on that development as soon as TV Overmind gets word of what the MGM auction could mean for the viewers and the Stargate franchise.

Amanda Tapping to Return to Stargate Universe

One SG-1 alum will be making an appearance again on SGU. Gateworld reports that Amanda Tapping’s Colonel Samantha Carter will reappear on SGU for or before (the episodes have not been confirmed) the Season One finale. Plot details are mum at the moment about the finale, but if Carter is in attendance then it has to be epic.

SGU’s Midseason Finale to Air on December 4th

Syfy has announced that Stargate Universe‘s midseason finale, “Justice”, will air on December 4th with a marathon of the first ten episodes of Season One to air on Christmas Day, a Christmas gift to all the late comers to the show or for those who wandered off. The back ten episodes of Season One’s 20 episode count will air in Spring 2010. Gateworld, who also reported on this story as well, has details of “Justice” at their site, but the details are marked “Spoiler: Medium”, which is the equivalent of the Terror Alert System, so read them at your own risk!

Thanks to Gateworld for their hard work in all things Stargate!

    BW and JM have ruined the franchise with Universe, if it has any mention in the 3rd SG1 movie I will not buy or watch it! They have taken a big dump (SH*T on the Gate fans that made there franchise,in favor of looking for A NEW AND YOUNGER AUDIANCE, which is why the neilson #s have went from 2.5 million to 1.5 in just the first few episodes!

    Come on MGM FIRE BW and JM and put some one in charge of the gate franchise who will honor the 15 year history of it, by way of good story telling and fun and adventure, which is what made the franchise and fan base!

    The depressing and boring show Universe is killing the franchise, kill the show now before it is too late, and give us a new Stargate made after the first 2 shows which were very successfull! Thanks foir your ear BC

    Why don’t they just cancel SGU now and never bring it back?
    Everyone thinks it stinks, just Google “Star Gate Univers sucks”
