Robert C Cooper Knows How Stargate Universe Will End

Stargate Universe co-creator Robert C. Cooper has revealed that he knows how the Syfy drama will end.

He told Collider that he has a plan for how the show might eventually conclude, but admitted that he is still uncertain what will happen in future episodes.

“[I know] why the Ancients sent the ship out there and where we could end the series [in the future],” he said. “[But] do I know what episode 3 of season 3 is? No.”

Cooper explained that he is keen to avoid long-term plans in order to allow the show to develop and change.

“I think that [our] philosophy has been to create a world. You build a world and you build characters that exist in that world,” he said. “We know where we’re going to a certain extent, but we also want to respond to what that world and those characters are telling us. Why would you turn away from a wonderful opportunity that is [presenting itself]?”

The second season of Stargate Universe begins on September 28 on the Syfy network.
