The second and final season of Stargate Universe was announced by Syfy on 13 December 2009.
Like the first season, the second season consisted of 20 episodes.
The series was moved from the franchise’s long history of Friday to Tuesday, along with Caprica, as Syfy had picked up WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
The series resumed on 28 September 2010, USA. In Ireland & UK, the series resumed on 05 October at 9pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD.
Syfy announced on 16 December 2010 that it would not be picking Stargate Universe up for a third season and that the Spring 2011 season would be the last to air on its channel.
Eli suggests that he has found a way to dial the Stargate home to Earth, stirring excitement amongst the crew.
But Rush has reservations about the plan.
Everything seems to be going according to plan when a Rush from twelve hours in the future shows up to warn them not to try it as it killed everyone but himself and Telford (who made it back to present-day Earth) in the future he came from.
The crew raids the future Destiny for parts and supplies for their own ship, but Future Rush accidentally kills present Telford in a fit of rage and remains behind to use the interface chair as future Destiny falls into a star and is destroyed.
