 SCI FI Clarifies SG-1 Casting

In response to rumors that it was responsible for the departure of Michael Shanks from Stargate SG-1, the SCI FI Channel issued a statement saying it never requested any cast changes to the show. "SCI FI Channel loves the series and has absolutely never requested that any cast changes be made," the network said. "We're very excited to add Stargate SG-1 to our original programming line-up, and although we regret the loss of Michael Shanks, we think that Corin Nemec will be a great new presence in the cast."

Nemec (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) will join the cast when the series begins its sixth season on SCI FI in June. Shanks, who played Daniel Jackson, will leave the show at the end of the current season, which is running on Showtime.

Stargate started out on Showtime, which will air original episodes through the end of season five. An all-new sixth season of the show will debut on SCI FI in June, and SCI FI will also rerun the first five seasons in order, beginning in the fourth quarter of 2002. Reruns of the series also air in various syndicated markets.
