From The Verge: The long-running science fiction franchise Stargate will be returning later this fall with a new digital show from MGM called Stargate Origins. The announcement was made [ recently ] at San Diego Comic-Con, during a 20th anniversary retrospective on the series Stargate SG-1.
Each episode of Origins will run 10 minutes in length, with the first season of 10 episodes available exclusively on a new website called Stargate Command. According to MGM’s announcement, Command will also be an official destination for all things Stargate, including a “variety of Stargate assets and content from the franchise’s nearly 25-year history.”
“We’ve been eager to revisit the Stargate franchise and create an all-new story that honors the founding mythos,” MGM’s president of digital and new platforms Kevin Conroy said in a statement. “We view Stargate Origins as a thank you to fans who have been keeping the spirit of the franchise alive for nearly 25 years.” The move to a digital platform is similar to the strategy that CBS is taking with its new Star Trek show, Star Trek Discovery, which will begin streaming later this year on CBS All Access. While Stargate Origins will begin filming this fall, MGM didn’t announce a release date.
