Why was Stargate SG-1 cancelled? Recently, executive producer Joseph Mallozzi explained why there was no 11th season for the Syfy TV show, GateWorld reports.
Part of the Stargate franchise, the sci-fi series begins a year after the events of the 1994 film and follows a team of specialists as they travel to distant parts of the galaxy using a network of alien portals called Stargates. The cast included Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Michael Shanks, Richard Dean Anderson, Don S. Davis, Gary Jones, Teryl Rothery, and Dan Shea.
We came close to doing an eleventh season of Stargate SG-1. Apple — iTunes — one of the executives there was a huge, huge fan. And after we were cancelled [he] said, ‘We discussed it, and we would love to pick up SG-1 for an eleventh and final season. It would be great. It would be an Apple original series.’”
Unfortunately, Mallozzi says, the show’s contract with Syfy prevented a new deal with Apple:
“We went down the road [with Apple], and then ultimately there was a clause in our deal with SCI FI that would not permit us to go elsewhere without their OK. And they did not give the OK. So basically we did not get the eleventh season.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Stargate SG-1? Would you watch an 11th season now?
