Having recently aired the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1 amidst much hoopla, one might think that the SciFi Channel has a certifiable hit. Not so, apparently. The SciFi Channel has just decided to cancel the series while renewing another season of Stargate:Atlantis.
“SCI FI Channel is proud to be the network that brought Stargate SG-1 to its record-breaking 10th season. Ten seasons and 215 episodes is an astounding, Guinness World Record-setting accomplishment. Stargate is a worldwide phenomenon. Having achieved so much over the course of the past 10 years, SCI FI believes that the time is right to make this season their last on the channel. SCI FI is honored to have been part of the Stargate legacy for five years, and we look forward to continuing to explore the Stargate universe with our partners at MGM through a new season of Stargate Atlantis.”
Perhaps this answers JP’s question, eh?
UPDATE: Oh, and it also makes this week’s poll quite timely!
