Brad Wright Promises A Darker Second Season Of Universe

Stargate Universe creator Brad Wright has revealed details of how the second season will progress.

The series follows an exploration team unable to return to Earth after an evacuation to the Ancient spaceship Destiny. Wright reportedly confirmed that there is more to the ship than meets the eye.

According to the Sci Fi Australia blog, the Destiny “has a destination of cosmic importance, so important that it overshadows the desire for the crew to get home, and that by fulfilling this new mission, it may in fact allow them to get home”.

The second season will also apparently include “a gigantic battle in space featuring an armada of alien spaceships, and possibly a planet-based battle”. The programme’s mid-season finale meanwhile is said to feature a “sea of wrecked ships”. Wright previously revealed that the next season will be “dark” in tone.
