On Friday, September 19, 2008, Stargate Atlantis wrapped production as a regular series. A few days of filming remain, on location in Las Vegas, but the cast aside from Joe Flanigan has said their goodbyes on set. MGM hosted a lavish wrap party on Saturday, as Joe Mallozzi describes here in his blog. Paul McGillion was at the party, and as shown in the attached picture, he was looking very fine!
Our campaign was created to bring Carson back full-time to Atlantis as a series. Sadly that won’t happen now, but assuming the Atlantis movies go forward we can still ask that Paul be included in some of all of them!
The campaign had many successes nonetheless, not least of which were to garner great publicity for Paul McGillion, and to ensure his return as Carson Beckett (sort of!) for 2 episodes in Season 4 and 5 in Season 5. More recently we had a successful charity campaign that raised $1400 US for 2 Canadian breast cancer charities. Those contributions have been finalized, by the way!
Meanwhile we’ll stick around to promote Paul’s career and to inform fans of developments for the Atlantis movies. We thank all of you for your support for the past 2 years now and hope to keep seeing you here!
