According to Sci Fi, Amanda Tapping has signed on to join the cast of the Stargate spin off, Stargate Atlantis.  Tapping previously played in the show Stargate SG-1.

Tapping will reprise her role as Lt. Col. Samantha Carter in Atlantis.  She played the character in all 10 seasons of SG-1, which goes off the air after completing the final 10 episodes of the current season.

Atlantis is now entering it's fourth season and Tapping will appear in 14 of the 20 ordered episodes.

The final episodes of Stargate SG-1 and the remainder of the third season of Stargate Atlantis will air starting April 13.


KJ's take:  This series spins off so much it gets me dizzy.  At least they manage to keep the quality up as they go.  Good to see her signing on ... on a side note, am I the only one who finds her pretty damn attractive despite her age?

I agree. She's a little young, but she's still hot!

This is very cool. I always liked her character and it leaves more room for appearances from O'Neil. I really wish they weren`t cancelling SG1. I have been watching it more and more lately and I forgot how much fun the show is. I wonder what Browder and Claudia Black will do? They were a great replacement in the 9th and 10th season. She is hot. There is something about her.

Love SG1. For me, the quality of the show is what kept me comming back..the way the main characters all interacted and the completeness of them all. Like O'Neil being able to prove he's repeating the same day over and over when Jackson asks "He *read* the report?" Good show. And yes, Tapping is very cute.

This show is great but I only remember one spin off. Did I miss one?

She is a hottie for sure. I just wish she would either invest in some real acting lessons (she studied acting in Canada) or talk less. Then again, many of the "actors" on the show have the same problem. Maybe a Canadian thing?

pharzuph1, the only spin offs I'm aware of are the cartoon and Atlantis. Although you could consider SG1 itself a spin off of the original movie. My question is, for what reason will the character be going to Atlantis. I'm sure they want Tapping on there in hopes of boosting ratings by getting more SG1 fans to watch, but why would Carter be going to Atlantis. Of all the SG1 characters that should make the transition, I figured it would be Daniel not Carter. Then again, I don't even like Atlantis so I don't really care.

Let`s face it, Atlantis is okay, but its no SG1!
