Stargate Universe cast

Syfy has confirmed it has cancelled STARGATE UNIVERSE. Currently in the middle of its second season, SGU has struggled in the ratings, which, while not confirmed, is believed to be the reason for the cancellation. The remaining ten episodes will air in spring 2011.

Stargate Universe followed Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle) and his team of military and scientific personnel who wind up on the Destiny, a millions year old starship designed to explore the far ends of the universe.

This cancellation means that for the first time since 1997 there will be no Stargate series on Syfy, and there are no current plans to continue the franchise. Syfy also cancelled Battlestar Galactica spinoff Caprica in October, making this a tough few months for fans.
