We already had a very vague teaser, but here’s our first real look at the next chapter in the Stargate franchise — one that looks to the franchise’s past with an exploration of humanity’s first discovery of the alien portals.

Set amid the backdrop of World War II, Origins — a 10-part, 100-minute web series — follows a young Catherine (Ellie Gall) and her father as they discover an artifact unlike anything known to man: The uncovering of the very first Stargate. But when tragedy strikes, Catherine finds herself swept up in an adventure to keep the technology’s secrets out of some very dangerous hands.

It’s short — understandable given the series itself is pretty tight — but it gives you a clear indication that this isn’t your typical Stargate fare. If anything, it looks a little more like Indiana Jones, but there just happens to be a whacking great alien portal at the center of it all. Just don’t think about Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and you’ll be fine.

Stargate: Origins, which will air in 10-minute chunks exclusively through MGM’s Stargate Command streaming service, debuts mid-February.



  • Why waste time on this when they could just make a new Stargate. Go back to single episodes about exploring a new planet and causing a problem only to solve it before the episode ends.

    • It’s to be a cheap webseries and someone said, “let’s make it like Indiana Jones.”

      It’s fine if they want to do this, what annoyed me was a lot of the early announcement stuff was like, “it’s success and the future of Stargate will be up to the fans.” Basically suggesting even if it’s crap and you want Stargate you need to support this.

      When we just want a new show of what we liked. Which this isn’t.

  • Another prequel series. Just make the next stargate story, continue on from the last one. Single eps + ongoing overarching narrative.
    Everyone is trying to be a crap 6 eps Netflix series. Give me the depth of old stargate with a proper 16-24 ep series with enough room to explore the new characters and story lines
