Although it's no surprise, the cancellations of "Stargate Universe" and "The Good Guys" are only made official now. After weeks of speculation, Syfy announced that it won't order a third season of "SGU". As for "The Good Guys", a Fox TV Studios spokeswoman has just confirmed the axing to

The second season of "SGU" which consists of 10 episodes will air as the series' last in Spring. "SGU" is the third "Stargate" franchise which is canceled after "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis". Syfy is keeping "Warehouse 13", "Eureka" and "Haven" in addition to premiering "Being Human".

The network had previously also ended "Battlestar Galactica" prequel "Caprica" and announced a new project called "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome". The new project focuses on the early years of William Adama and takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war.

Meanwhile, "Good Guys" is not returning for a second season after a series of low rating. It debuted last Spring with 4.93 million viewers but the number declined down to 3.42 million on Friday nights. The 20th and last episode of the cop dramedy aired on December 10.

Janis Burklund of the Dallas Film Commission had another way to put it. "The Good Guys wasn't canceled," she wrote on Facebook. "They completed and aired all the episodes that were ordered. Unfortunately it appears Fox isn't going to order a second season. May seem like the same thing, but it's not. Still bummed regardless of course."

It's a pity! I do enjoy Stargate Universe. I wish they didn't cancel the series.

Maybe SGU could save itself by introducing alien vampires who sing hit songs like in Glee? Both seem fashionable these days. :) I find it frustrating that the good ones never seem to hang in there.
