A third television series in the hit "Stargate" television franchise is now in development reports GateWorld.

A production source new series is in the concept phase, and is being actively worked on by the Vancouver creatives behind "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis".

No concept for the show has yet been revealed. A 2008 premiere is likely at this point, rather than rushing for a release next year to replace the departing "SG-1".

The "SG-1" series will continue with two movies, presumably direct-to-DVD, currently aiming for a fall 2007 release. No word on if these will lay elements for the new show.
