    Stargate SG-1 cancelled, Atlantis renewed

    The future of Stargate is in question today, as SCI FI Channel has cancelled the long-running Stargate SG-1, Multichannel News reported today and a GateWorld source has confirmed. The news regrettably follows the airing of the show's milestone two-hundredth episode on Friday.

    Stargate Atlantis, meanwhile, has been renewed for a fourth season, with the network hoping to see that the spin-off series can stand alone, according to a source.

    Sucks for SG1, but 10 years is a LONG LONG run.

    I am glad that Atlantis has been renewed. Its one of my favorites (and its not like my avatar does not suggest that! :) )

    i am going to miss SG1 some. I wonder why the drop in the ratings?

    Was the 200th episode the last? or have they completed the rest of the first half of this season (arent both series scheduled to go on leave until winter soon?)?

    Well it started out as a Kurt Russel movie. It wouldn't surprize me if it went back to the big screen. I'm sure it would see some success.

    Mgm is already supposed to be working on a Stargate movie(may never come about but... , it would take off where the original movie stopped with Kurt Russell as Jack O'Neal and James Spader as Daniel Jackson reprising their movie Roles...

    I think I remember reading that, probably somewhere in a thread on here. Wasn't it suggested to be set, like 10 years later.

    Isn't likely Showtime will take SG1 back. They cancelled it 5 years ago and Sci Fi picked it up. SpikeTV? I sure hope not. Their PQ is terrible...
