Stargate Origins (also stylized as Stargate: Origins) is the fourth live-action series of the Stargate franchise. It premiered on February 14, 2018 [1][2] exclusively on MGM's new digital platform, "Stargate Command". The series was announced on July 20, 2017 at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con as part of Stargate SG-1's 20th anniversary celebration. The series was directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan, with writers Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry. New Form, MGM's digital group and entertainment studio, produced the series.

Stargate Origins serves as a prequel to Stargate SG-1 and explores the backstory of Dr. Catherine Langford, the daughter of Professor Paul Langford - the man who discovered the Stargate in Giza, Egypt in 1928, as depicted in the 1994 feature film Stargate. The events of the series take place 10 years after the discovery of the gate.[3]

The series consists of 10 episodes, each approximately 10 minutes in length (essentially a 10-episode feature-length movie), and expands upon the existing mythology of the Stargate franchise. The potential for additional episodes of the series beyond the 10 announced episodes exists, pending the series' reception. The filming of Stargate Origins began in August 2017 and finished in December 2017. The first three episodes aired on February 14, 2018.
