Save Stargate SG-1 - Fans campaign to Save Stargate SG-1
As the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1 aired, the SciFi Channel cancelled the show. Season 10 will be the last unless we as fans rally to support Stargate SG-1 and MGM, the studio producing the show. MGM are actively seeking other options for Stargate SG-1, including: an 11th season on SciFi, another network or via digital distribution on the web, TV or direct-to-DVD movies or miniseries.
