Like a phoenix, when one “Stargate” series falls, another one rises from its ashes. First we had “Stargate: Atlantis” just as the original “Stargate: SG-1” series was losing steam, and now that “Atlantis” is reaching its end, “Stargate: Universes” is ready to go where no stargate has gone before. The Hollywood Reporter announced this morning that the new series will be launched with a 2 hour TV movie in early 2009 and will be followed with the new series in the summer.

The new series will of course be overseen by series co-creators Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, who will act as executive producers and writers on the new series. THR goes on to say that the new series “introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogrammed mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe.” While no “SG-1” or “Atlantis” cast members will be a part of the new shows regular cast, crossovers are expected to continue as they did with “SG-1” and “Atlantis”.

“Stargate” is the Sci Fi Channel’s longest-running original series franchise, so I don’t think this show is that much of a surprise. “Stargate: SG-1” has continued since it was canceled in the form of straight to DVD movies, and it is expected that “Stargate: Atlantis” will do the same after it finished up its last season, which is currently airing on the Sci-Fi Channel. This is a franchise that knows how to streech its legs!
