Syfy has unveiled its spring premiere schedule, giving fans of Stargate Universe a concrete date to begin the countdown to the finale.
The series will return Monday, March 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT for its final 10 episodes, which pick up with the crew of the Destiny in a battle with a drone command ship and the surprise arrival of the aliens that abducted Dr. Nicholas Rush (Robert Carlyle) and Chloe (Elyse Levesque).
The third installment in MGM’s Stargate franchise — following Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis — SGU premiered in October 2009. Syfy announced in December that it wouldn’t renew the show for a third season.
The cable channel did, however, renew Sanctuary, which premieres the first of 10 new episodes on Friday, April 15, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. It picks up from the mid-season finale, with the team at the mercy of Ranna (Polly Walker). The series returns for its fourth season in the fall.
