TV Talk: Both Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis fans will have to wait until April 2007 for new episodes to begin airing, rather than the previously announced March 2007 restart date.

SG-1 will run its final 10 episodes on Friday nights when it returns and Atlantis will begin its final 10 shows for season 3. Atlantis, the SG-1 spinoff series, will return in June of 2007 for the beginning of its season 4 with major casting changes.
