Most mystery/crime dramas are primarily concerned with whodunnit, but this summer ABC will give Motive – a Canadian series that explores why the crime was committed – a place on its schedule. Motive stars Kristin Lehman (The Killing, Judging Amy), Louis Ferreira (Stargate Universe, Breaking Bad), Roger Cross (Continuum, Arrow, 24), Lauren Holly (NCIS, Alphas), Brendan Penny (Stargate: Atlantis) and Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2).
The series will premiere in the coveted post-Super bowl slot in Canada.
After spawning two series that ran for a combined fifteen years – and two straight-to-video movies – the Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, got canceled just as it was beginning to peak. The season two DVD set contains the final episodes of the series, along with a host of extras and a look at why the show ended on the note it did.
Stargate Universe [Syfy, Tuesdays, 9/8C] makes its second season premiere on a new night – and that’s the only thing that’s changed. Intervention finds the inhabitants of the ancient Ancient starship Destiny in as precarious a position as the one in which they were when last we saw them – but we don’t actually find that out until after the very intriguing teaser.
As Stargate Universe approaches its September 28th premiere date, Syfy announces the addition of Victor Garber, David Hewlett, Robert Picardo, Kathleen Quinlan and French Stewart to its roster of guest stars. The five join Robert Knepper and Julie McNiven, both of whom have multiple episode arcs as members of the Lucian Alliance that attempted to wrest control away from Col. Everett [Louis Ferreira] in the first season finale.
