What's the future of Stargate SG-1? Fans have been wondering and rumors have been flying for weeks since the long-running SCI FI Channel series was cancelled in August (story). Now, at least the first part of that answer is here.
MGM has given a green light for the show's creators to produce two direct-to-DVD movies based on SG-1. Executive producer Brad Wright let TV Guide in on the news this week.
"It's the climax of the Ori story line," Wright said of the first film. The movie will tie up the loose ends from the show's tenth season, which is expected to conclude its U.S. television run in June. The film will be written and directed by current SG-1 executive producer and show-runner Robert C. Cooper.
The SG-1 cast is not signed for the movies yet, but are said to be "very eager" to continue.
Wright will pen the second film, which will involve time travel.
The producers have previously expressed a desire to set up a third Stargate television series with a film -- but it isn't confirmed yet whether or not this second movie will do just that.
The studio is targetting a fall 2007 release for both projects -- just a few months after Stargate SG-1 ends its historic, 10-year run on cable television.
It's entirely possible that the movies will also be aired on television -- something SCI FI commonly does with direct-to-DVD movies.

One of the few shows left where heroes are heroes, and villains are villains. None of this "shades of grey" nonsense.
Not only that, the military are good guys, the politicians just mess things up being idiots, no fear of using WMD when called for.
I really enjoyed SG-1, even with the "new" cast with Ben Browder and Claudia Black, and, even thought I'd love it if the series were to continue, I'm looking forward to any movies they might make based on SG-1. And the sooner, the better!!
I agree.. I feel sorry for Browder and Black.. They seem to have a string of bad luck when it comes to sci-fi shows...
