Save the date! There’s a big Stargate tweet storm a-brewing.
Friday, December 6th at 21:00 EST, 18:00 PST (Check your local time!)
We’ll be hitting twitter HARD at the appointed time for a full hour. The goal? To let MGM (and all those prospective new broadcast/cable/streaming homes) know that Stargate fandom is very much alive and eager for a new series. But not just any new series. Stargate fandom will settle for nothing less than an in-canon series, one that offers an easy jumping on point for new viewers yet still honors seventeen years of sci-fi t.v. history.
Quite the challenge admittedly. But former Stargates SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe co-creator, showrunner, and Executive Producer Brad Wright is up for the task.
To quote Brad in a late 2018 interview: “I don’t expect – and certainly don’t anyone expect – another television show to appear around the corner. But Stargate is an important part of their library.”
Between then and now, I feel we’ve really turned a corner. Several new streaming platforms have entered the game, driving the market for marquee content. And, truly, what is more marquee than a crown jewel franchise that spawned over three hundred episodes of television?
I’ve been saying it for years now: Stargate will come back. It’s not a matter of IF, but WHEN.
And given the developing television and streaming landscape, it’s clear that WHEN is NOW.
So we’re going to tweet. We’re going to be respectful. Yet we will be firm in our conviction that a new Stargate series is not only imperative but long overdue.
Now I need you all to get the word out. If you know any Stargate fans who would be interested in a new series, let them know and get them on twitter. The same applies for fans of Travelers and Dark Matter. We could use your support. Hell, this applies to all sci-fi fans out there. The more the merrier.
Join us Friday, December 6th at 21:00 EST, 18:00 PST and tweet your hearts out. In addition to blowing the doors off twitter…
We’ll be joined by some familiar faces.
Random participants will win assorted Stargate and Dark Matter swag from the vault.
And, if things fall right, we will all soon be rewarded with a new show.
