MGM Revives “Stargate” With A Digital Series

MGM has announced plans to revive the “Stargate” franchise, albeit in digital series form.

“Stargate Origins” is a ten episode series which will tell the story of Catherine Langford, the elderly female character from the original 1994 Roland Emmerich feature who also appeared in “Stargate SG-1”.

Langford is the daughter of archaeologist Paul Langford who discovered the ancient device that serves as a portal allowing exploration of dozens of worlds in many galaxies. In the new series, Catherine will go on an adventure in order to save the Earth from terrifying darkness.

Mercedes Bryce Morgan directs and Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry will write “Stargate Origins” which will be available via MGM’s new streaming service ‘Stargate Command’ this Fall.

Said service will offer fans access to the most comprehensive collection of content related to the franchise ever offered – likely to include all of the 380 episodes aired across twenty seasons and three separate series including “Stargate SG-1,” “Stargate Atlantis” and “Stargate Universe”.
