Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom – Part 2

On June 3rd, Amanda did an event at The Companion where she talked about mental health and fandom. You can watch 
the full video at The Companion after registering. The Companion has also published blog posts related to the interview: Why Fandom is Good for Your Mental Health, and Amanda Tapping Speaks Frankly About Her Mental Health

Amanda stated that she’d like the conversation to continue, and The Companion just announced the date for the next event. It will take place on September 16th; the exact time is yet to be announced. Like the last time, it will be an hour-long livestream followed by group chat sessions. We will keep you updated here, but you can also join the waiting list at The Green Room to be notified when bookings go on sale.

Amanda Tapping Back in a New Stargate Series?

Once in a while, someone posts something about this and social media gets excited about it without fact-checking. I’m publishing the actual infos and will try to keep this post updated. These are the current facts:

– Amanda, like the other Stargate actors, would love to be involved in a new Stargate series, behind and/or in front of the camera. She repeatedly has stated this at interviews and conventions, including FedCon and LFCC this year. She has also repeatedly said that she thinks Sam Carter would be head of the SGC and general by now. These are just her thoughts on where she’d like her character to be, not the actual canon of any potential new series.
– In 2020, Brad Wright (executive producer on Stargate) wrote a rough draft for a pilot for a new Stargate series. MGM had contacted him and asked him to develop a pilot script. There was talk about a potential fourth series. The pandemic halted the conversation. Amazon acquired MGM, and they own the Stargate franchise now. Amazon hasn’t reached out to Brad Wright about the script so far.
– Back when he wrote the script, Brad talked about Amanda and asked her if she’d be open to being in a new series. She said she would. Again, this is just Amanda expressing interest in being involved in a new series. Brad Wright does not own the Stargate franchise and can’t revive the series by himself.
– Many Stargate fans would like a revival, and there’s much speculation on what Amazon could do with the franchise. So far, that’s all it is, just speculation. Amanda does not know anything about a new series happening, nor has she been approached by Amazon about this. The last time she said this was at LFCC in July 2023.

News from LFCC – Updated

With the Writers Guild of America being forced to strike to fight for a fair contract, Amanda only has one new upcoming project: She’ll be directing a new Canadian series Wild Cards, in the fall. The series is based in Vancouver and is a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist. It follows Ellis, a detective, and Toni, a scammer, who solve crimes together.

Updated: I nearly forgot this important info: Amanda has told her agents that she’s open to acting again, so maybe we’ll get to see her in front of the camera again!

Updated: There’s a post on social media quoting Amanda saying she will be involved in “the” new Stargate series. That is not true. This post has the information about that.

On a different note: captain-sassy-socks collected videos for the birthday project for Amanda during LFCC. Thank you so much, captain-sassy-socks! If you haven’t participated yet, there’s still time to do so until the end of the month. You can find the info here. Also, I heard that some people were hesitant about doing a video because they felt weird about seeing/hearing themselves. If it helps, only Amanda will see the finished video. If everyone participating is okay with it, all the participants will also get the finished version, but if not, it only will be Amanda. The video will not be public.

Online Interview on Mental Health – Updated

Amanda had anounced that she’d be doing a talk about mental health at The Companion back in 2020, when she did the interview ‘Uplifting Women in Film and TV ‘. The Companion now announced that the event will take place on June 3rd, 2023. First there will be an 1-hour interview, followed by exclusive green room video calls with four groups of five fans. Find out more and get your ticket now at The Companion!

If Amanda or Stargate or the fandom has had a positive influence on your mental health, you can now share it with The Companion for the interview.

Update: You can now watch the full video at The Companion after registering. The Companion has also published two blog posts related to the interview: Why Fandom is Good for Your Mental Health and Amanda Tapping Speaks Frankly About Her Mental Health
