How Stargate Universe’s TV series abruptly came to a sad end (executive producer TV interview: video).
Being just 40 episodes into a projected 5-year plot, Stargate Universe‘s Season 2 cliffhanger was obviously never supposed to conclude at that point. When those dirty rascals at Syfy Channel cancelled the programme just as it was about to hit its full head of steam, the authors of the show were as stunned as the viewers.
In addition to writer and executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, interviewer David Read also speaks with Paul Mullie, a fellow Stargate executive producer, on the last season of SGU.
Hearing them both talk about how they developed narrative ideas in the writing room, how they learned that the show would be ending, and potential plot outcomes for the Destiny, is a lot of fun.
