In very happy news for the production, Stargate Atlantis has been renewed for Season 5. As noted in this press release:
“SCI FI is proud to bring Atlantis back for another season,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming for SCI FI. “Atlantis truly came out from under the shadow of its sister series this year and proved that it’s a hit in its own right. With this season’s exciting new characters and vibrant storylines, Atlantis also shows every sign of matching its sibling’s longevity.”
This is the news we’ve been waiting for, since the only chance to get Carson Beckett back as a full-time character is to have the show be around for another year!
Now is the time for another campaign push, to let the powers that be and the sci fi press and magazines know we want Carson back not just for a guest appearance or two, but for all 20 episodes!
Use our Addresses page to guide you in whom to write. Or, if you can’t mail a letter yourself, please use our mailing service. If you are able to volunteer to help the campaign at all, please join our Yahoo! group and let us know.
Let’s get busy and get Paul back up to Vancouver to work with his friends and to bring Carson to us once again!
