"The SCI FI Channel is ending Stargate Atlantis after five seasons, Multichannel News reports. The show will go on, though, with a 2-hour movie that will air on SCI FI in 2009, and be released on DVD by MGM. The film will be written by executive producers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie."

I've not been paying attention lately. This was announced about 2 weeks ago. Oh well, I knew it would happen eventually. When the original show was canned, Atlantis had maybe 2-3 more at most I'd thought.

They'll be doing movies. Apparently before the show was cancelled, they pitched an idea that would could air as a two-hour season opener, or work as a direct to disc film. They're apparently working on the script now. The team is still kind of shell-shocked, I think. Ratings have been good. I've enjoyed the dynamic with Woolsey thrown into the deep end, actually.

A new Stargate series, aimed at a younger demographic, is already in the works. I forget the name of it at the moment, though. It's slated to premiere on SciFi next year, after SGA wraps the back half of the season.
