The big news for Jason Momoa this weekend was all the hype surrounding the final season premiere of his Apple TV+ series. See. It’s exactly during this premiere that eagle-eyed fans of Momoa early in his career may have spotted a reunion from another of the actor’s popular shows. It would be none other than Stargate: Atlantiswhile two of the actor’s longtime co-stars appeared for a photo at the Season 3 premiere.
You’d be forgiven for not noticing the big Stargate: Atlantis meeting because it was buried in a photodump of other photos from the See first. Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett made multi-episode appearances in Seeso their appearance at the event makes perfect sense, but it’s still nice to see the three together and looking so good so many years later.
It’s also worth noting, in my opinion, that Joe Flanigan looks almost unrecognizable with gray hair and facial hair. Don’t get me wrong, it ages like fine wine, but scrolling through it took me a second to get to any point aha. In fact, I don’t even think I would have made the connection when he appeared as “The Military” if Flanigan’s appearance on See was not announced in advance.
David Hewlett also nodded to the reunion in a comment on his own Instagram post, noting:
It has been well over a decade since Stargate: Atlantis ended its run on cable and it’s been nearly two decades since the show got the green light and embarked on the journey to earn more Stargate SG-1 Fans. Since then, Jason Momoa has become a superstar thanks to his role as “gate” (sorry) in game of thrones like Khal Drogo and later works like Aquaman in the DCEU, among other gigs. Momoa may have taken on many badass roles at this point, but he’s still interested in creating for the TV format and the actor’s fans have reaped the benefits.
He’s also clearly still interested in working with buddies from his past, and I wouldn’t be too surprised if a Stargate: Atlantis the reunion of this ilk will happen again in the future. At least one girl could hope.
Unfortunately, See is heading into its third and final premiere, but not before it’s made its mark as one of the first shows to really kickstart those Apple TV+ subscriptions. The Apple TV+ series may be ending, but from the footage, it certainly looks like it will come out with a bang.
