A bit of hope for fans of the STARGATE franchise flickered to life at the Stargate Convention in Vancouver, B.C., this weekend: Producer Darren Thomas, who has not previously been linked to any Stargate projects, revealed that MGM is working to revive STARGATE SG-1 in a “new format.” Thomas declined to elaborate, but said (according to the MGM Stargate Facebook page):
“Plans are under way and I wish I could tell you more. The good news is that we will be unveiling something big at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.”
To me, the “new format” could only be a Web series. I mean, what else is left? We’ve already seen a Stargate movie, TV series, TV movies, an animated series, comic books, novels and even radio dramatizations. It’s got to be a Web series. Or a stage play. But my money is on the Internet. That newfangled World Wide Web is reportedly all the rage among the youngsters these days.
So, how long until San Diego’s Comic-Con? (Hint: It runs July 12-15.)
