Set 100 years in the future, The Ark is the new series from Stargate and Independence Day screenwriter Dean Devlin and Stargate SG-1 co-creator Jonathan Glassner.
The series takes place on Ark One, a colony ship containing humanity’s last hope of survival, and stars Christie Burke (The Haunting of Bly Manor) as junior officer Lt. Sharon Garnet, Richard Fleeshman (The Sandman) as navigator Lt. James Brice, and Christina Wolfe (Batwoman) as Cat Brandice amongst others.
At least one episode has been written by Warehouse 13‘s John-Paul Nickel, who also serves as co-executive producer.
The Ark is expected to air in 2023. Nice to see Syfy investing in spaceships again isn’t it?
In Stargate SG-1 Season 9, the familiar figure of Merlin appears in an unfamiliar guise as SGC’s best hope of defeating the Ori.
