Fans of Stargate may have missed one of its newest shows with Stargate Origins. This show was originally exclusive to a short-lived Stargate streaming service. Now that Amazon owns MGM, the parent company behind Stargate, they are making the movie version of this show free on Freevee. For many Stargate fans, this may be the first time they can watch this show without needing to pay extra. This was first spotted by GateWorld.
Here is how the show is described:
Young Catherine Langford embarks on an unexpected adventure to unlock the mystery of what lies beyond the Stargate in order to save the Earth from darkness.
This movie is based on the Stargate SG-1 TV show that grew into a massive hit for MGM. Stargate SG-1 is a science fiction series created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner based on the 1994 film of the same name. The series premiered in 1997 and ran through 2007. Stargate SG-1 centers on the eponymous Stargate, a wormhole portal connecting to other stargates across the universe. The show takes off a year after the events from the film. SG-1 is an elite U.S. Air Force team that defends the Earth from alien threats. The series is set on present-day Earth, with the U.S. government controlling the portals to acquire rare resources, new technology, and keep an eye out for threats to humanity.
The series is a sequel to the film and leads into spinoffs Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, and Stargate Origins, which are not part of the Freevee channel. Several books, video games, and comic books sprung from the movie and series.
If you want an on-demand option, you’ll need to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership. Prime subscribers can also access the TV film The Ark of Truth and some of the show’s spinoffs. For $3.99, you can rent the Stargate TV film Continuum.
