Stargate Atlantis casting news

by on Feb.17, 2008, under Television

Apparently I’ve been missing some news regarding Stargate Atlantis for some reason, so here is a rundown, with the full details available at GateWorld: Amanda Tapping will be leaving the show at the end of the current season (after having taken command this season), to work with her new show Sanctuary, which is going from web to TV on the SCI FI Channel; Robert Picardo (Richard Woolsey) is joining to replace her; Jewel Staite (Dr. Jennifer Keller) is now a full-time cast member; Paul McGillion, despite the fact that his character, Dr. Carson Beckett, is dead, will return for 5 episodes next season; Michael Shanks will make at least one guest appearance; Torri Higginson (Dr. Elizabeth Weir), despite previous reports, will not appear in Season 5; and Leela Savasta (who will appear in several episodes of Battlestar Galactica when it returns in April) will join as Captain Alicia Vega.
