"We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with MGM and their trust in us as a leading digital-first studio to deliver the next compelling chapter of this fantastic Stargate franchise,” says New Form COO JC Cangilla.

With more than 380 episodes spanning nearly 20 seasons, the Stargate franchise is an award-winning, cultural phenomenon around the world.

Stargate SG-1 was first broadcast in South Africa on SABC2 that only showed the first few seasons and then dropped the show. The series was taken over by M-Net for one of its channels on DStv, with the subsequent spin-offs Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe that were both shown on M-Net Series.
