    Stargate SG-1, the longest-running science fiction series on American television, has been cancelled.

    The Sci Fi Channel, which airs the show in the US, has said it will not broadcast any potential 11th series.

    The show, based on the 1994 film Stargate, aired its 200th episode last week. It airs in Sky One in the UK.

    "Having achieved so much, Sci Fi believes that the time is right to make this season their last," said a statement from the channel.

    However, it also confirmed that it will pick up Stargate SG-1's spinoff series Stargate: Atlantis for a fourth year.

    Both programmes have seen large falls in their ratings for their most recent series, but Stargate: Atlantis recorded significantly higher figures.

    In all, 215 episodes of Stargate SG-1 were made.

    I think it probably had gone as far as it could. 200 episodes on a very simple premise is alot.

    Ya, I enjoyed all the eps of SG-1 (even though I'm really far behind and need to catch up, I've been a fan since day one, since I was a fan of the movie). Good to quit while your ahead, unlike say simpsons.

    ANd to be honest, without McGuyver himself in that show well it gets boring fast

    Jeff Loomis: He's so good, he doesn't need to be dead to have a tribute.

    Seems like the cut off seasons for most shows are 10. I've heard this show has gone downhill the last few seasons though, so it's inevitable. Going to be a lot of sad fans.

    10 seasons is very hard to reach for any show.

    Just a few on that list

    Wish another network would have stepped up and taken over. But the producers did say that SG1 wouldnt end... with... SG1

    You had to pull out a list. Also the website redirects so I can't see the list.

    Ok correction, most shows don't last 10 seasons anymore.

    Seinfeld - 9
    Cosby Show - 8
    Friends - 10

    edit: Well hell I see it now. Ya'll are right to an extent....as long as you leave out the ratio to the shows that don't make it to 10.

    Yea, it seems to be pretty hard to make it to season 10. Dramas are the most common to do it.

    If anything, I wouldn't mind HBO or Showtime to pick it up for HD goodness . Supposedly Atlantis has been getting better ratings than SG-1, which suprised me, I thought most people would watch SG-1 more so than Atlantis.
