Stargate is without question the most popular science fiction franchise of the modern era. When it debuted in 2009 Stargate Universe was an attempt to get away from the formula of previous Stargate series’ in favor of telling the more self-contained story of a group of humans stranded on the other side of the universe in a starship they couldn’t really control. After a slow start the show’s scripts started to pick up steam as the ensemble cast (led by Robert Carlyle and Louis Ferreira) found a real chemistry and there seemed to be real potential there… right before its unceremonious cancellation by the SyFy network in 2010. Of all the shows on this list Stargate Universe would be the easiest to bring back. It hasn’t been gone long and most of the cast should still be available. It would be easy to pick right up where the show left off, almost as though it had never been gone. There’s huge potential here, if Netflix just bites and the existing Stargate fanbase is big enough and devoted enough that they’re sure to show up and give it a shot at living up to the potential only glimpsed in the series’ final few episodes.
