Saving Hope Renewed in Canada!

Michael Shanks' new show Saving Hope has been renewed in Canada for a 13-episode second season. No news yet about whether NBC has decided to continue with it.


Who Have You Followed to New Shows?

We've seen a few of our Stargate stars become regulars in other shows. Which ones are you following and what do you think of the new roles?

Amanda Tapping - Sanctuary (ended with 4th season)
Rainbow Sun Francks - The Listener (joined in second season)
Robert Carlyle - Once Upon a Time
Jewel Staite - The L.A. Complex
Michael Shanks - Saving Hope

Additionally, some of our Stargate guest stars have also made it to regular starring roles. I can't list them all, but a few that jump out at me at the moment are: Ben Bass in Rookie Blue, Erica Durance in Saving Hope (producer and star), Lou Diamond Phillips in Longmire, and Tony Amendola in Once Upon a Time (recurring).

Let me know if I missed anyone!

No Fifth Season for Tapping's Sanctuary

Sanctuary has been cancelled after four seasons. Rumors have been circulating for a while since no news was forthcoming since the season four finale in December. Sanctuary was in being independently produced, originally airing as a web series until SyFy picked it up for its network as well as for its innovative use of green-screen technology.

Amanda Tapping (Samantha Carter) starred and produced the series along with behind the scenes Stargate alums Damian Kindler and Martin Wood. Christopher Heyerdahl (SGA's Halling and Todd the Wraith) and Ryan Robbins (SGA's Ladon Radim) were other Stargate alums that rounded out the regular cast, not counting the numerous familiar faces who were guest stars.

Joel Goldsmith Has Passed Away

He composed the music of Stargate and now he has passed away at the age of 54 of cancer.

Update on Garry Chalk

Here's a brief profile about Garry Chalk, who played Russian Army Colonel Chekov on SG-1. He'll be attending BotCon in Dallas in April: DAVID KAYE AND GARRY CHALK OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED AS BOTCON 2012 GUESTS.

I never knew how extensive Chalk's voiceover career is. As far as his recent appearances on TV, I just saw him on Alcatraz, did you?
