STARS RETURN TO LIGHT UP THE 'GATES'

'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis' Casts Sign on For New Seasons

New York, NY - November 21, 2005 - Principal casts for both SCI FI Channel hit original series, 'Stargate SG-1' and 'Stargate Atlantis,' have signed on to reprise their roles for the recently announced new seasons of the shows.

Returning for another tour of duty on 'Stargate SG-1' will be Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, Michael Shanks and Beau Bridges. Also joining the team as a regular cast member in season 10 will be Claudia Black, who won audiences over in the current season for her portrayal of "Vala," the sexually-charged, ethically-challenged thief-of-all-trades who spends all her free time tormenting Daniel Jackson (Shanks).

In another galaxy, 'Stargate Atlantis' welcomes the return of Joe Flanigan, Torri Higginson, David Hewlett, Rachel Luttrell, Paul McGillion and Jason Momoa. Currently in its second season, 'Atlantis' is cable television's first successful drama spin-off, averaging more than 2.3 million viewers a week.

'Stargate SG-1's new season will be a historic one for the series, as it becomes the longest-running sci-fi drama on US television - surpassing 'The X-Files' and every iteration of 'Star Trek.' The show will also mark its 200th episode. Stronger than ever, the series is currently in its ninth original season, averaging 2.4 million viewers each week.

'SG-1' co-creator Brad Wright and Robert C. Cooper will return as executive producers on both series.

'Stargate SG-1' is produced by Double Secret Productions, in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Sony Pictures Television. 'Stargate Atlantis' is produced by Acme Shark, in association with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. and Sony Pictures Television.

The one-two punch of the 'Stargates,' coupled with the critically-acclaimed 'Battlestar Galactica,' have made SCI FI Channel cable's #1 destination for young adults on Friday nights. New episodes of the entire 'SCI FI Friday' lineup will return to SCI FI on Friday, January 6, 2006.
