In response to today's breaking news, SCI FI Channel has issued a statement confirming that the cable network has not renewed Stargate SG-1 for an eleventh year.
The network also confirmed that it has renewed spin-off Stargate Atlantis for Season Four, as first reported today by GateWorld (story).
Here is the network's statement:
"SCI FI Channel is proud to be the network that brought Stargate SG-1 to its record-breaking 10th season. Ten seasons and 215 episodes is an astounding, Guinness World Record-setting accomplishment. Stargate is a worldwide phenomenon. Having achieved so much over the course of the past 10 years, SCI FI believes that the time is right to make this season their last on the channel. SCI FI is honored to have been part of the Stargate legacy for five years, and we look forward to continuing to explore the Stargate universe with our partners at MGM through a new season of Stargate Atlantis."
SG-1 aired for five years on the premium cable network Showtime, moving to SCI FI for its sixth season in 2002.
NOOOO!!!!! You fucking pencil-pushing asshats! WTF do you think you're doing?!?! Your cable channel sucks donkey balls. You've got a handful of worthwhile shows sandwiched between some of the most unmitigated shit I have ever seen in my life! Now you're choosing to cancel the gem in your lineup?!? Get your heads out of your collective asses! What the fuck are you going to replace stargate with? Even Bruce Campbell can't turn out enough shittyass B-movies to fill that much dead air.
If I had a fucking death cannon, whoever made this suckass decision would be in fucking flames right now. FUCKING FLAMES! Immolation, asshole. It's what's for dinner.
