Michael Shanks not returning to SG-1??
by Doc on Sep.27, 2001, under Television
This is all second hand, but in tracing back a thread on alt.tv.stargate-sg1 (“Losing SG1 cast member?”), apparently Brad Wright, the producer of Stargate SG-1 announced at GateCon that Michael Shanks (Dr. Daniel Jackson) would not be returning to the show when the 6th season begins on the Sci Fi Channel. I know he expressed what seemed to be disinterest in another season at other appearances…it appears that he and Brad came to an agreement for him to leave the show. He is to be replaced by another character, but no details. As soon as I see something confirmed, I’ll let you know…
