Syfy cancels ‘Stargate Universe’

Move comes two months after 'Caprica' cancellation

Syfy is saying bye bye to “Stargate Universe.”

Cabler will bow out of the “Stargate” business after airing the remaining 10 episodes of the second season this spring. Syfy has had a “Stargate” series — “SG-1,” “Atlantis” or “Universe” — on the air since 2002.

About a million people watched each episode of the first season of “Stargate Universe,” but that was far below what the net needed to continue production. “SG-1” and “Atlantis” drwe about double the number of viewers in their heyday.

Cancellation was the second to come from Syfy in recent months. It ended “Battlestar Gallactica” prequel “Caprica” in October after only one season.

As for new programming, Syfy will debut “Being Human” on Jan. 17, and it recently greenlit “Alphas” and “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.”
