The SCI FI Channel has announced the end of Stargate SG-1. Right on the heels of a record-breaking 10th season and the 200th episode, SCI FI says they will not renew the show for an eleventh season – but Stargate Atlantis will continue. Hmmmm…perhaps the end of “200” could provide a clue as to what’s next… 🙂 Update: To clarify, SG-1 is currently only in the first half of its 10th season. There is still a second half to air in the new year (I hear March instead of January though). Also, Gateworld reports that producer Robert C. Cooper has said they are looking for it to go on in some way – fueling speculation at several levels, but making the feature film seem more likely.
Apparently, the BBC actually commissioned and budgeted a spinoff series of Doctor Who to start Billie Piper, called Rose Tyler: Earth Defence – but writer/producer Russell T. Davies scuttled the idea. Torchwood, the previously announced spinoff starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, is still moving forward and should air this fall on BBC3.
