'STARGATES' CONTINUE TO SHINE BRIGHT ON SCI FI: 'SG-1' AND 'ATLANTIS' RENEWED

'Stargate SG-1' Enters Unprecedented 10th Season

The Longest-Running Sci-Fi Drama in US Television History

NEW YORK -- October 24, 2005 -- The 'Stargate' franchise continues to rule the television universe. SCI FI Channel has ordered new seasons of its hit original series, 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis.' Production on both 20-episode seasons is slated to begin in early 2006 for summer premieres on SCI FI.

Heading into an incredible tenth original season, 'Stargate SG-1' is now the longest-running sci-fi drama in American television history, outlasting 'The X-Files,' 'The Twilight Zone' and every iteration of 'Star Trek.' And the series is stronger than ever. The first half of 'SG-1's ninth season has averaged 2.4 million viewers per week.

'Stargate Atlantis,' cable television's first successful drama spin-off, has been renewed for its third original season. A pulse-pounding action adventure, 'Atlantis' took the original premise of 'Stargate' -- instantaneous travel to different worlds through an ancient portal -- and introduced a brand new team and sinister new enemies that pose a threat to humankind throughout the universe. A bona fide hit, the show has averaged over 2.3 million viewers a week for the first half of its sophomore season.

'SG-1' co-creator Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper will return as executive producers on both series.

'Stargate SG-1' is produced by Double Secret Productions, in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Sony Pictures Television. 'Stargate Atlantis' is produced by Acme Shark, in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Sony Pictures Television.

The one-two punch of the 'Stargates,' coupled with the critically-acclaimed 'Battlestar Galactica,' have made SCI FI Channel cable's #1 destination for young adults on Friday nights. New episodes of the entire 'SCI FI Friday' lineup will return to SCI FI in January 2006.
