A season 3 is very unlikely lớn come as it"s been more than 10 years since the show ended, but recent developments should give Stargate fans new hope for further stories from the franchise.


The main story of Stargate Universe follows a team of soldiers, scientists, & civilians who are stranded on an ancient spaceship called the Destiny, several billion light years away from Earth. The Destiny is on a pre-programmed mission khổng lồ explore the universe, and due to a lack of energy, the team is unable lớn return home.

Anyway, there is good reason to be optimistic about the future of the franchise. In 2021, Amazon bought MGM, the studio which currently owns the rights to the Stargate franchise.
