Exclusive: Complete Runs of Every Stargate Series are Finally Returning to TV
< >
Since Roland Emmerich's Stargate was released back in 1994, the Stargate franchise has gone on to become one of the biggest in modern science fiction history. With multiple TV spin-offs, TV movies, and a huge fan base, Stargate has built up its own complex mythology featuring iconic sci-fi villains ranging from the ancient Goa'Uld of Stargate SG-1 to the terrifying Wraith of Stargate: Atlantis. Despite this rich mythology and rabid fan community, Stargate shows have been without a major home on US television for quite some time, with only This TV playing SG-1 and Atlantis and Universe notably missing from the airwaves. This all meant that fans were forced to resort to home media and the Internet for their Stargate fixes. But that's all about to change, because a new TV channel dedicated to science fiction classics is about to bring all of the Stargate series back to your TVs.

Starting on November 2nd, Comet TV will be airing every Stargate episode ever created, from the pilot of Stargate SG-1 to the last scene of Stargate: Universe, and everything in between. That's a lot of Stargate content, folks....no fewer than 354 episodes and two TV movies to be precise. This news will no doubt be music to the ears of Stargate fans, but it's also a great opportunity for those who aren't familiar with the franchise to hop on the bandwagon and immerse themselves in the shows right where they all began.

Created through a partnership between Sinclair Media and Metro-GoldwynMayer (MGM), Comet TV will officially launch in most markets on Saturday October 31st, bringing with it some of the greatest sci-fi blockbusters and B-movies of all time. Anchoring the launch will be feature presentations of Terminator and Moonraker, while other classics such as Species and Leviathan will all air during the channel's first month. 

As for Stargate, the franchise will receive two dedicated daily weekday slots with episodes being shown in sequence from 12:00-2:00pm and then repeated in a primetime slot from 8:00-10:00pm. It's not clear just how quickly Comet TV's daily dose of Stargate will rattle through the seasons, but from the preview of the schedule we were shown, it looks like they'll be getting through SG-1 at a rate of around one season every month, with Atlantis and Universe to follow shortly after.

Grab your Ma'Tok Staffs and head through the portal, because Stargate is back where it belongs!

Stargate: SG-1 starts airing on Comet TV on at midday on Comet TV.
