Stargate Universe – SGU – has been canceled.
That’s right after 2.5 seasons, SyFy is pulling the plug. They let SG-1 run for ten years, Stargate Atlantis for five and now SGU for 2.5. Next show will only run for 1.25 seasons at this rate.
To make matters worse, SyFy didn’t even have the common decency to tell the actors on the show first — many of them found out first by seeing it on Twitter – including fan favorite Eli (David Blue).
Sure there were a few slow episode of SGU in season one. But season 2 has been kickass – except maybe for the recent mid-season cliffhanger.
The show had potential and was beginning to live up to it.
What’s the point of having a Science Fiction network — if it won’t support original Science Fiction programming?
And after more than a decade of Stargate – how the FRAK could SyFy pull the plug?
They SCREWED the show over by putting it in a horrible Tuesday time slot this year, which should have been our first indication that the FRAKKERS at SyFy were aiming to kill this show.
We think it’s time that a new SciFi Network emerges — one that will support the shows that fans love – and one that has the business sense to figure out how to make a profit while doing that.
