The TV version of Stargate SG-1 aired for 10 years and most of us thought that Stargate Atlantis would get the same kind of tenure. But the SciFi Channel as it was known then decided to cancel Stargate Atlantis after only 5 seasons and the final episode aired in January 2009. In July 2009 the SciFi Channel was renamed Syfy and SGU: Stargate Universe began airing in October 2009. On December 16, 2010 Syfy announced that it would not be picking up SGU: Stargate Universe for a third season and that the 10 final episodes of the Spring 2011 season would be the last to air on its channel.
