Reports of Dr. Carson Beckett’s untimely demise last season on SCI FI’s “Stargate Atlantis” have been greatly exaggerated haven’t they? Paul McGillion will reprise his role as everyone’s favorite Scottish physician in a two-episode arc during the series’ fourth season, which will premiere on Friday, September 28 at 10pm ET/PT.
It was the fan cry heard ’round the Pegasus galaxy when Dr. Beckett was unexpectedly killed in an explosion at the end of season 3. His return to “Atlantis” promises to be every bit as shocking.
In addition to McGillion’s return, “Atlantis” viewers can also look forward to season 4 guest appearances by Torri Higginson (“Dr. Elizabeth Weir”) and Stargate SG-1’s Christopher Judge (“Teal’c”).
“Stargate Atlantis” is executive produced by Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper, Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie. The series is currently in production on its fourth original season in Vancouver, BC. with Mallozzi and Mullie sharing the reins as showrunners.
