Judge Wants More Stargate
Chris Judge, who plays Teal'c on the SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate SG-1, told SCI FI Wire that he's pleased that his negotiations for a seventh season of the show, the show's second on SCI FI Channel, worked out. "It was just basically a matter of dotting the i's and things like that," Judge said in an interview. "I was looking forward to coming back."
Judge added, "I think we're just hitting our stride now, so why stop? And next season, Rick [Anderson] will still be with us, and Michael Shanks, who is one of my best friends, will be back [as Daniel Jackson]. So it's going to be great. I'm just glad all the business stuff worked out. It gives us another year to evolve these characters."
Judge especially wants to learn more about his own character. "Is he going to make Earth his home? Is he going to settle down with some Earth woman? Is he going to fall in love with someone from another planet and stay there? Is he going to travel the universe and try to liberate Jaffa? Those are the things I want to see for Teal'c."
New episodes of Stargate SG-1 will air Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, beginning Jan. 10, 2003, with the episode "Unnatural Selection." Production is underway now in Vancouver, B.C., on the show's upcoming seventh season.
