MGM has announced a new Stargate series, Stargate: Origins.
In the teaser, that they released, we see scenes from the original movie, when the stargate is found in Giza, Egypt, in 1928.
What if you didn’t know the whole story? Go back to where it all began.
And then it tells us that Origins is coming in 2017, though filming has yet to start so we’ll see if that holds up.
That is all that MGM has officially put out, however, we have also learned that Origins will not be a full series.
It will only be ten episodes, each ten minutes in length, and aired exclusively through the new Stargate Command website.
The site will apparently be housing all previous Stargate content, including the original movie, all ten seasons of SG1, the three SG1 movies, all five Stargate: Atlantis seasons, and the one and a half seasons of Stargate: Universe.
It basically feels like MGM is going to use Origins to test the interest for new Stargate content and then decide whether or not to commit to a new series or movies.
The good news is that it definitely sounds like they’ve ruled against a remake of the movie or anything that will cancel out all of the series.
