    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”.

    Wasn't it established in the original movie that the original finders of the gate couldn't get it to work? If that's the case what's the series going to be about? 10 episodes of them trying to get the gate working? Or they get the gate working and then everyone forgets how it works before the original movie starts?

    Back to Abydos? Stargate OriginsPlanning Desert Shoot
    Director Mercedes Bryce Morgan hints at some of the early plans for the story of Catherine Langford.

    Stargate fans may be heading backto that alien planet where the adventure began — decades before Jack O’Neill and Daniel Jacksonstepped through the Stargate for the first time.

    The Stargate Origins production staff has been scouting filming locations this month, and among them is a desert location intended to look like the desert planet from the original feature film.

    “Aside from the fact that we drove eight hours to bake in the desert sun, our team was able to find spots that matched the world of Abydos,” Origins director Mercedes Bryce Morgan wrote in her new Director’s Diary at Stargate Command.

    “We were only out there for an hour but it felt like twelve because it was 120 degrees with zero shade and protection. Every time you take a step, you sink in a foot. Feels like walking through snow drifts … burning hot snow drifts. Already preparing for some rough days on set.”

    Abydos was never named on screen in the 1994 movie that starred Kurt Russell and James Spader. But fans of the television show got to know it quite well on Stargate SG-1 when the team visited it again in “Children of the Gods,” “Secrets,” “Forever in a Day,” “Absolute Power” (briefly), and “Full Circle.”

    The planet was destroyed by the Goa’uld Anubis’s super-weapon at the climax of SG-1‘s sixth season.

    Daniel Jackson’s first trip to Abydos included a close encounter with a mastidge. From Stargate (1994).

    In the era of Stargate Origins, of course, the planet is still under the control of the Supreme System Lord Ra, who has enslaved the Abydonians to mine the rare mineral naquadah in support of his empire.


    A visit to the planet five or six decades before Earth’s first military mission there could mean that we’ll see Kasuf, future leader of the Abydonians, as a child or a young man.

    Location scouting took place the first week of September.

    The desert landscape of Abydos in the 1994 movie came courtesy of sweltering days of shooting in Buttercup Valley outside Yuma, Arizona.

    Since the feature film the TV series have filmed on location in the deserts of the southwestern United States twice: once for the Stargate Atlantis episode “Vegas,”and once for the alien desert of SGU‘s “Air, Part 3.” In the latter case the cast and crew filmed at White Sands, New Mexico.

    Morgan also writes about production design for Catherine’s bedroom, scouting a warehouse (perhaps where the Stargate itself will be located), casting, and more. Be sure to check out the full Director’s Diary now at Stargate Command!

    First Look: The “Stargate: Origins” Web Series


    first-look-the-stargate-origins-web-series-696x464.jpg


    First announced at Comic Con in July, MGM is resurrecting the “Stargate” franchise with the web series prequel “Stargate: Origins” which is in production.

    Posted by the YouTube channel associated with the new ‘Stargate Command’ streaming platform, behind-the-scenes footage shows the young Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall), her father (Connor Trinneer) and several other cast members on a ‘tent city’ set which looks like it could serve as a return to Abydos.

    In the ten-episode series, young Catherine embarks on an unexpected adventure to unlock the mystery of what lies beyond the Stargate in order to save the Earth from darkness. “Stargate Origins” was originally slated for release this year but hasn’t set an official date as yet.
