Fresh hope for Stargate Universe?
Could work be underway to earn Stargate Universe a reprieve, and get it a season three commission? A sliver of hope has emerged…
Syfy has fallen off the Christmas card lists of many people, it seems, following its decision to cancel both Caprica and Stargate Universe over the past few months.
But while the fate of Caprica is sealed, with no chance of a reprieve in the offing, there might just be an olive branch for fans of Stargate Universe.
We're only talking slight chances here, but one of the show's producers, Joseph Mallozzi, has been talking about the cancellation of the show on his blog.
Specifically, after chatting about working with visual effects supervisor, Mark Savela, Mallozzi wrote:
"I was in the office yesterday to watch the Day 1 Mix of The Hunt. Great stuff! Anyway, while there, I talked to Brad [Wright, executive producer]. Needless to say, he's been working hard to ensure we all get the opportunity to work with Mark in 2011. 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."
This is clearly a long way from anything concrete, but there are solid hints there that work is ongoing to try and earn Stargate Universe a third season. We wonder if that means shopping the show to more science fiction friendly networks than Syfy, perhaps someone like Starz?
It's all speculation at this point, clearly, but it does seem that there's at least a sliver of hope for a Stargate reprieve. We'll keep you posted of any further news.
