With this week’s announcement that Stargate Atlantis won’t be renewed for Season 6, we can only be sure of seeing Carson for four more episodes of the series. The first of those, “Whispers”, will air in the US on Friday September 5. As a reminder, the episodes featuring Carson Beckett this year are:

Atlantis will continue on in direct-to-DVD movies, and we urge fans to continue to ask, in forums, on blogs, etc, that Dr. Beckett be included in those movies.
As for a campaign to “Save Atlanis,” speaking for the leadership team of SaveCarsonBeckett, we feel that since the creators of Atlantis have mutually agreed to its cancellation with Sci Fi Channel and MGM, then there is really no point trying to save the show. As far as the show creators are concerned, they would prefer not to make it anymore as a weekly show. Therefore fan reaction is likely to have no positive impact, in our opinions.
We wish anyone luck who does want to campaign! Various “save” sites are popping up but no one that seems definitive yet. Once there is one, we will let you know!
