Atlantis Canceled: Confirmed By Sci-Fi

October 19, 2008

In late August it was confirmed that Stargate: Atlantis is finishing it’s fifth and final season.  In January it will conclude with it’s 100th episode and also it’s final for the series.  Not unlike SG-1 Atlantis still has life in it and is scheduled for a two-hour movie.  No name has been chosen as of yet, but it’s future is existant. 

“One hundred episodes is the goal of every writer-producer,” Brad Wright told GateWorld exclusively. “To have achieved that with a spin-off series is amazing. And like SG-1, I don’t feel as though anything is coming to an end with Atlantis — it’s just evolving. Ark of Truth and Continuum were hugely satisfying creatively for everyone involved precisely because they were movies, and we have no intention of stopping there.”

For a spin-off show to survive 100 episodes and five seasons is a great feat and something to be proud of.  Atlantis has been certainly been an exciting new adventure to latch onto after SG-1 concluded it’s regular shows.  However, Stargate’s followers are too loyal to simply resolves themselves to an end, as it seems Atlantis has only ended its reign on the Sci-Fi channel.

“We’re excited to tell Atlantis stories on a bigger canvas,” series creators Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper said. “The successes of the two original Stargate DTV movies The Ark of Truth and Continuum have shown us the opportunities that the movie format offers. We have plans for both SG-1 and Atlantis to remain vital as we expand the franchise.”

As many rumors have confirmed another Stargate spinoff is also a possibility for the future, so hold tight Stargate fans.  This is nowhere near the end of the Atlantis or Stargate Franchise!

    I wish Atlantis wasn’t stopping! It doesn’t seem right, after 5 years that it should stop, when you think of how long SG-1 has been on. It seems quite sad.
