Atlantis is an odd duck, really.  It's been enjoyable despite not knowing what to do with most of the cast and the baddies.  I mean, we're entering the fourth year and they're still struggling with major cast members and dramatically writing them out.

Sci-Fi's official announcement:

Quote
The fourth season of Stargate Atlantis debuts on Sept. 28 and will air Fridays at 10 p.m. Atlantis will have a midseason finale on Dec. 7, a finale that will feature the return of Torri Higginson as Dr. Elizabeth Weir. The Atlantis team must ally itself with a known enemy to join forces against an even greater foe.

From Gateworld:

Looks like it will air in the US first.  Hopefully that will help the ratings.

Airdate isn't the thing that kills your ratings. BSG experienced great ratings in the first season because people downloaded it and told all their friends it was an awesome show and made them watch it.

Yes, but one of the big reasons that Atlantis didn't have great ratings the second half of last season was that it was shown everywhere but the US back in February.  So when the US got it in July everybody had already dowloaded it.

It's the hiatus, not the start date.  It starts at the same time for everyone.  But Sci-Fi will have a two month (or more) mid-season hiatus while the show continues to air everywhere else.

Did you read that they will do this or is this based on previous years?  Hopefully, they have learned their lesson and not let it air outside the US until it airs here.

The problem with Stargate is that Sci-Fi doesn't control it outside of the US.   Stargate has separate licenses in the UK and Canada.

Well it looks like Season 4 will run straight through only stopping for 4 weeks total for holidays.

Oh, wow.  Has Sci Fi finally gotten a clue?  BSG is going straight through, as well.

Supposedly we should also know about season 5 in short order.  I saw an interview at a convention that said SCIFi will know within the first few episodes as to whether season 5 will be picked up.

Which means it will be.  Has Sci Fi changed management or something?  They drop the hiatus, they start talking positive, they're promoting the hell out of BSG, they're bringing back Farscape... It's like bizarro Sci Fi.  Makes me nervous.

I'm excited and yet a little worried.  Whenever, I really start hoping a show will continue forever, they just cancel it.  Firefly, Keen Eddie, Lovemonkey...

Well, Stargate has staying power.  Having Carter pull a Worf, and with the two movies coming out, and running straight through, it'll be a golden year.

One can only hope.  There was also a mention on Gateworld about Christopher Judges new series.
