Stargate Universe to be revived?
Stargate Universe producer Joseph Mallozzi has hinted that the series could still return for a third season despite being cancelled by Syfy.
Stargate Universe producer Joseph Mallozzi has hinted that the series could still return for a third season despite being cancelled by Syfy. It was announced last year that Syfy was not renewing Universe after ratings fell below 1 million viewers and almost immediately rumours of the franchise once again moving homes began. Now the strongest sign yet that a deal to save Universe is on the cards has been given by producer Joseph Mallozzi.
“There is nothing definite as of yet to report, but a minor hurdle was cleared. Quite a few hurdles still lie ahead and there’s always the chance it might all be for naught, but right now, things are looking positive. We spent a couple of hours in the late afternoon discussing the… game plan if it all goes well, and… I can assure you that it’ll be very, very exciting for all.” – Joseph Mallozzi writing on his blog
Ten episodes of Stargate Universe’ second season remain to be aired on Syfy. The final batch of episodes will air on Syfy in the Spring. The third entry in the Stargate franchise launched with over 2 million viewers but towards the end of its first series ratings began to drop. The decline in ratings continued through the first half of its second series until they fell below 1 million at which point Syfy announced it was cancelling the spin-off.
